Panama Hotels

In Panama, accommodation options vary greatly depending on location, style and price. Panama definitely has its share of hostels and budget hotels, but it is also home to a growing number of luxury hotels and resorts as well. Guesthouses, B&Bs and beachside huts all fall somewhere in between, providing interesting and affordable mid-range choices. Plus, due to its large coastline, many Panama accommodations are on or close to the water, and have pretty views and beach access.

Panama Budget Hotels and Panama Hostels

Lots of backpacker-friendly hostels and cheap budget hotels are located in Panama City. Some of them are more seedy than others, so go by word of mouth or check out a room before taking it. Many of the hostels include breakfast and Internet, either WiFi or otherwise. In Panama, hostels typically have dorm rooms or private rooms available. Dorm beds run about $10-16 per night, while you can find privates for about $12-35. These privates either have shared or private bathrooms, depending on the place. There are also a few reasonably priced inns with pools and on-site restaurants scattered throughout Panama. Budget hotels are sometimes worth the extra few dollars, for more privacy, improved cleanliness and additional amenities.

Panama Luxury Hotels and Panama Resorts

There is no shortage of luxury hotels and resorts in Panama. Resorts can mostly be found in Boquete, Bocas del Toro and on some of the secluded islands off the coast. First-class hotels, many complete with spacious suites, Jacuzzis, balconies, high speed Internet and air conditioning, compete with fancy all-inclusive island resorts and high-end spas. In Panama, luxury hotel prices tend to hover between $150-300 a night. Panama City is also home to the huge Riande Continental Hotel and Casino, which is frequented by business executives and goes for about $150 per night. Private guesthouses on the water can be reserved for about $60-120 per night.

Panama Camping and Other Panama Accommodation Options

Although it is not extremely popular, camping is certainly possible in Panama. Camping is permitted on most Panamanian beaches since they are all considered to be public property. Some camping resorts have actually been set up in some places in Panama, such as in Chilibre. Also, some national parks allow camping, but they usually charge a small fee. Many of the best Panama camping spots tend to be in more deserted areas will less developed infrastructures.

In places such as El Porvenir, Coco Blanco and nearby islands, a lot of the accommodations come in the form of cabins or huts on the beach. For about $35-50 per person per night, these accommodations frequently offer package deals that include nightly stays, three meals a day and boat trips. Those looking to stay in Panama City for a few weeks or months at a time, may find renting an apartment there a good, economical choice.
