Shipping destinations in Panama
Not everywhere in Panama is readily serviced due to its sparsely populated areas throughout the country. Major cities and areas are serviced like Chitre, Anton and Santiago. Depending on the shipping company you choose to go with, they may require the recipient to travel to the closest city to pick up their parcel or they may allow you to pay extra for it to be delivered. The fee associated with this extra delivery is typically called an extended delivery fee and can vary by carrier.
Shipping limitations to Panama
Many food items are prohibited when shipping to Panama, such as sweet meats, pastries, and perishable food items. You can, however, send some food products that would not go bad in a long journey such as peanut butter or something of that nature. You can also not send any lottery tickets or circulars about the lottery, or pretty much any monetary items (coins, bank notes, traveler's check, etc.). If you think you may have something in your package that is on the restricted list, contact either your shipping company or Panama's Customs office to discuss it with them and find out if it is allowed.
