Taxis

Sometimes it seems Panama has more taxis than mangos. Sometimes, if it is raining at knockoff time, it seems there are no taxis at all. In Panama City fares are based on a zoning system. A cabbie must show you his zoned map of the city if you challenge his charge. If you have a bunch of places to visit around town, the easy way is to hire a cab by the hour, negotiable. Prices differ between small taxis and large taxis. Between Tocumen Airport and Panama City's hotels the official rate is $10.00 a person if you share the cab with up to four others, $ 14.00 if you share with one other person, or $25.00 if you want the vehicle to yourself.

Buses

INTERNATIONAL BUSES
Panaline departs from the Albrook Bus Terminal daily at 12:30 p.m for San Jose, Costa Rica. • Cost: $70 round trip. • Tel: (507) 314-6385.
Ticabus
services to San Jose, Costa Rica, leave from Albrook every day at 11:a.m. • Round trip fare to San José costs $70, to Nicaragua costs $55 and to Guatemala $230.00. • Tel: (507) 314-6385. To San Jose the bus costs about one fifth of the air fare, takes about 16 times as long.

BUSES TO THE INTERIOR: Buses of all shapes and sizes orbit the nation in a tooting infinity of apogees and perigees. The interior, which in effect means all the country west of the Canal, is served by buses ranging from Greyhound quality, for the trunk route to David, to mini-buses which hop, skip and jump to and fro between the beach resorts and about everywhere else.

Buses leave from the Gran Terminal at Albrook.

Panama City has as many bus routes as bus designs. You normally pay the driver as you get off. To stop the bus, yell "parada".

There are a growing number of limousine companies operating in Panama for those who wish to arrive in style. • Call Monkey Jam (507) 226-4926
