All information on TravelPanamaNews is personally selected by our team every day--travel only, no politics unless it might affect travel. We don’t use automated programs that fill up your in box with news from Panama City, Florida (because the search bots can’t tell the difference). Everything we post, form our original stories and photographs to the great work of other people, organizations and businesses, is reviewed first for relevance and interest to travelers to Panama.
Occasionally we provide news about our neighbors in Central and South America such as Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica and others. Many travelers take in more than one country during a trip, and we see a lot of people who include one or more of these places in the course of a trip that takes them to Panama.
