Traveling to and from Panama for your Sport Fishing experience is relatively simple and SAFE…pretty much the same as traveling domestically.
You will arrive at Panama City’s International Airport (Tocuman Int’l – PTY) on any one of many flights on many different airlines. Copa is the airline of Panama, but many airlines provide good service to Panama.
Arriving In Panama
After you Arrive at PTY you will have to go to baggage claim downstairs to Immigration (Migration in Panama), then you will proceed to pick up your bags and clear Customs (Aduana).
It is pretty straight forward and there are lots of agents around that speak English if you need help. This process can take as little as 10 minutes, or a little longer if there are multiple flights landing at the same time.
You now have a couple of different options getting out to Boca Chica.
You can rent a car and drive the 6 + hours from Panama City… or you can fly there in 45 min
