Traveling to Panama
Flights arrive at the Tocumen International Airport (code PTY), which is a 20-minute cab ride from the hotel.

American and Canadian citizens do not need a Tourist Visa, however you are required to have a valid passport that is more than three months away from expiration. There are no required vaccinations to enter Panama, however you should consult your physician before international travel.

Service is provided by most major international airlines, such as United, American Airlines or Delta. Or you can compare all your options easily by entering your dates into Kayak, or an online travel service of your choice.

Airport Pickup
Taxis are available at the airport, and the standard rate is between $25-$30, depending on the number of passengers and pieces of luggage. Your driver may not speak fluent English, but he or she will understand the name of the hotel.

VIP attendees of the Global Property Summit will receive a free transfer from the airport to the hotel. If you are not a VIP and would like to schedule an airport transfer contact our conference coordinators at or dial 1-888-627-8834 (toll free from the US).

Money exchange
Panama uses the US dollar as its official currency, so there is no need to exchange money. ATMs are available throughout the city when you need cash. It can be difficult however, to break larger bills…so have a supply of fives and ones on hand for tips, taxis, and small purchases.
