PANAMA TOURIST SIM CARD

PANAMA PREPAID SIM CARD BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about Panama prepaid sim card that internet and data connection is great especially in the cities. There are a few places off the beaten path like mountains, beaches and jungle where the connection will be weak.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is getting a prepaid sim card in Panama. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime. We recommend you to get outside the airport when getting to the city in an official phone shop.

There are 4 phone operators in the country: +movil, Claro, Tigo and Digicel. You can buy your Panama tourist sim card when you arrive in Tocumen international airport. I would recommend to buy outside because prices tend to be higher at the airport compared to the stores in town.
