Car Hire Panama City

Tocumen Airport Guide

Panama City is the business, residential and administrative centre for this part of western Florida. The tourist part of the region is properly called Panama City Beach and is a separate city, adjacent to Panama City. The city hosts the huge fun attraction of Ripley’s Believe It or Not as well as a fabulous Visual Arts Centre which performs theatre, shows films and hosts photography exhibitions. The beach in Panama City Beach is the main attraction though and has beautiful white sand and crystal clear waters. There is also a thriving water sport scene on the beach.

Tocumen Airport Directions

Take the Roger J Clary Highway until it meets route 85, continue south on this until it joins route 20. Follow route 20 south east to Junction Heights then turn south on route 75 into the city. The journey is around 40 minutes. Flights arrive from airports across the south east and travellers from Europe and the UK would need to fly into Atlanta, Charlotte or Dallas to make a connection.

Panama City Info

Panama City used to be called Harrison until the authorities tried to cash in on the media frenzy accompanying the opening of the canal of the same name. The city itself has little of interest to tourists who often confuse it with its touristy neighbour Panama City Beach. The city is on the edge of the southern oilfields and is home to a division of Gulf Energy whilst the tourism of the area provides the majority of its income.

Panama City Trivia:
  • Panama City is the administrative part of the twin cities of Panama and Panama City Beach
  • It’s home to the awesome Ripley’s Believe It or Not
  • The city was originally called Harrison but changed its name when the Panama Canal opened
  • It has recently been voted as the best place to invest in property in the US
