Planning your own itinerary
There is no doubt that the best way to explore Panama is by renting a car, planning your own itinerary and making an adventure out of your stay here. It is a beautiful country, with lots to see and do. If you’re arriving in Panama City and want to travel the length of the country to the Costa Rica border you can either take a 30-minute flight to the city of David in the province of Chiriqui or travel on the Pan American Highway which traverses the country from the Darien jungle to Costa Rica.
Renting a Car in Panama
Most travelers to Panama have heard that everything here is “cheap” and they expect to be able to rent a car for next to nothing! Contrary to this belief, short-term rentals in Panama can be expensive, although long-term rental rates can be quite reasonable.
One of the most popular places to visit – by both tourists and those looking to retire/live in Panama – is the town of Boquete in Chiriquí Province. Situated 45 minutes from David Airport, Boquete is home to a large expatriate community and also appeals to the tourist looking for mountains to climb, incredible bird-watching, canopy tours, deep-sea fishing, relaxing on a beach an hour away… you name it!
You have a choice of car rental companies in Boquete and – to those in the “know” – Value Motors Boquete is the place to go! Catering to the Panamanian and Expatriate communities, Value Motors has gained a reputation as the “Go To” Rental and Car Sales Company. Value Motors will pick you up at the David Airport, drive you to the rental lot, set you up and see you on your way! A great start to your Chiriquí experience
