InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Panama City

Hello to all Americans in Panama City! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Panama City? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Panama City which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Panama City is a lively Latin American city which borders one of Central America’s richest rain forests. The vibrant metropolis is a diverse city known for its famous canal, historical ruins, rich culture, and much more! With the bus, train, and boat services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Clayton or Brisas del Golf, for example, which are less than a 20-minute journey away from Panama City’s center.

Although Panama City has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Panama City, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
