going to panama next week - atm and taxi questions

1. can someone tell me where the ATM is when I arrive at the airport?

2. Do I need a reservation for taxi and do I need panama currency?

3. and what is the panama currency? the guidebook said it uses the US$ as currency.

Thank you!

Since the US dollar is the currency, just bring enough cash from home so that you don't have to worry about an atm for the first day or two or three.

1. The ATM is located on the departure level.

2. Just go to the booth which is to your right as you come out of the customs area. Set price from the airport to the city is $25 but that will be going up soon as I think these fares where included in the new tariffs approved by the government. Not published in the official documents yet so not in effect.

3. US dollar since 1904 so no conversion to worry about.

Cheers,

Andrew
