    They have no idea what they are doing there! I never seen this kind of such a fool people together . Tocumen Airport is very small for such city.

    Amazingly beautiful approach to Panama City. However, someone needs to urgently speak to Latin Americans about wireless internet connections, their importance & need for them to work and be reliable.

    Although very pretty when you just land right under palm trees but it isn‘t the best organized airport I have ever been to. Preferably, allow yourself some extra time here when transitioning.

    The Panama Canal is truly a fascinating place to visit. It is over 80 km long, connects the Atlantic and the Pacific. The Tocumen airport is roughly 30 minutes to the canal

    When you come out to take a taxi to Panama City, please double check with the driver. The fare should not be more than $40 (example Uber fare is $35, from Panama to the airport. Don't let them cheat!

    If you will stay for long time, go downstairs and will find a free transfer to Metromall every 30 min. There you can eat better and expend some time, they have some outlet stores and tourist discounts

    Mola's Bar (2 locaciones at both ends is a great option to have a drink and snack before your flight! Free WiFi and the best cocktails, the service is the best!

    You can't bring water you JUST bought in the terminal for $7usd past the gates and on your plane! WTF... Panama's bad first impression.

    Complete (fast) food court on second floor. Not really well indicated. I think there are just three restrooms in the whole airport (!!). No bookstores or papers/magazines as far as I could see.

    If you thought a croissant was a nice light start of the day, don't try the one of the naturally fast (normally slow) on the 1st floor foodcourt, old and solid as a brick..

    Whoever said there's a great food court eats horrible fast food... Good luck trying to find something good and not loaded with calories

    No duty-free cigarettes, no smoking booth and leave your lighter at home, it will be confiscated. Make sure to take the stairs/escalator up for decent WiFi

    The new food court is nice, but if you just want a coffee and sandwich you have to stand in line and watch a quite disorganized crew messup. Abajoi el foodcourt, vive Tierra Firme . Mas autentico

    Free wifi for 30 min, always crowded, shops are 2x-3x more expensive than outside, unless you live in a developing country with expensive electronics stay way- waste of time, food court ok but small

    The new wing, very nice and convenient, the old one a pit. Housekeeping went on vacation and never came back...

    New terminal can't come soon enough. The food court is an absolute relic, frozen in time since 20 years ago w/ the most awful fast-food. Only option outside of it is a Nathan's (!!) on the bottom fl.

    The new metro bus makes it a lot cheaper to get to the airport (even though the path is still kinda weird). Pay 25 centavos rather than 25$ on a taxi. Handy for backpackers, you do need the card tho

    Very fun airport, more like a mall, that happens to have some air traffic going through it. Very diverse selection of shops and restaurants, only one lounge air side, Copa, which is OK

    On your way out, use the immigration line to your right (if you're standing towards the staircase) that one usually move faster.

    There are several stores and it is a tax free area but hold on your impulses, connect on the free airport Wi-Fi and check eBay before each deal, you will notice that most of them will not worth it.

    Security checks at the gates. You'll be held in an area with not enough seats. No liquids allowed either

    The most picturesque landing I know when the plane slowly pulls down by the Panama Canal & passes the ever-growing skyline :)

    If you are looking for restaurants or bars, go to the food court on he 2nd floor. Can walk up by Gate 23.

    Never leave anything to chance when it comes to duty free. 1. They dont have it (videogame consoles) 2. Everything os far more expensive than the mall. Iphones average nearly 800 usd!!

    You're going to go through security. Then before you get on the plane you are going to have you carry on searched, your shoes taken off, and get patted down again. Be cool and get it over with.

    Probably worst airport I've been to. Not because it is poor, it has very fancy/expensive shops. All the staff is bad, exchange rates are insane and there is no place for luggage. no trolleys to move.

    Excelente option for free wifi. Try to stay closer to the Copa VIP lounge, where you could get the connection a bit stronger

    There is a food court on the second floor near the middle of the airport. The escalator, stairs, and elevator are all near gates 22-23.

    officially, my least favorite airport. They have you go through security AGAIN at the gate, and have all the same rules... Even if you buy food and water IN THE FREAKING AIRPORT.

    Free wifi for 2 hours. SIM card with data can be purchased from vending machine. Tourist card to Cuba from Copa check in counter.

    Very short queues, almost no wait (took 10 mins from entering the airport to gate, incl security and baggage drop). Immigration officers don’t speak English. Cigarettes are very cheap in duty free.
