35cents for one journey makes the metro exceptional value but the station ate not really on a tourist route and very limited. You need to buy a $2 card first and then put it back in the same machine to charge it up with funds....More

Very clean, modern and quite inexpensive ($0.35 for a ride). Easy access to Albrook Shopping Mall, if you want to shop til you drop.

Line 1 is great, line 2 will be opening in a year or so. Easy to use, modern and efficient. I stayed at a hotel near one of the stops. So convenient!

Move your valuables to an area you can control...because at rush hour you will literally be body pressed against body. It's cheap - $0.35...and is definitely a better option that sitting hours in traffic in Panama City. It's clean. Good train schedules as well. Expansion...More

The metro line does not run to the airport. Maybe someday... A taxi is about $30 to PC from the airport, depending on where you want to go. Set the fare before you enter the taxi and keep your luggage with you, not in the... More
