Visitor Information

The Autoridad de Turismo Panamá (Panamanian Tourism Authority, ATP) is Panama's official tourism organization.

ATP has 17 offices around Panama, open weekdays 8–3:30. The English-speaking staff at ATP offices are friendly and helpful. Their resources—mostly brochures—tend to plug local tour companies rather than aid independent touring.

Other resources include The Visitor, a small, free paper that can be found at most hotels and travel agencies, and Panama Planner, an excellent tourism magazine available at large hotels.
