Where to storage your luggage in Panama City

(Last Updated On: 1. May 2019)

When you travel to Panama, you might go to the east coast, for example, to visit the San Blas Islands. The way to get there is usually to fly to the Tocumen Airport and after that you would need to go e.g. to the “Marcos A. Gelabert” International Airport (PAC). This airport is reserved for domestic flights. If you do this, you should know that there is often a limitation regarding to the luggage weight. When we went to Yandup Island, there were only 14 kg (30 lb) free for each person. For every kilo overweight you had to pay about $2 US-Dollar. Two bucks extra for each kilo doesn’t sound very much. But you would nevertheless carry all your stuff with you, and this can be quite annoying. So the best way to get rid of unnecessary luggage is to find some luggage storage in Panama City. My first thought was to leave our suitcases at the Panama Tocumen Airport.

For that reason, I searched on the internet for possibilities of luggage storage in Panama City. In a forum I found some information that there is indeed a luggage store facility directly at the Tocumen Airport. The price was, according to the information I found, $5 US-Dollar for each day per suitcase. But it seemed to be difficult to find it because there is no signage.

The other problem was, that we couldn’t leave our luggage at the airport directly after our arrival. So we needed to go from Panama City to the airport extra to store our luggage the next day. Which would cost about $30 to $35 dollar just to get there if you would go there by taxi. After our trip, we would need to go there again to pick up the trunks for the same price. So just for the taxi rides you would pay about $60 to $70 dollar plus the storage charges. As you see, a quite uncomfortable and costly situation as well.

In this post I give you a list with hotels where you can storage your luggage directly in Panama City. In some of those hotels you can storage luggage only when you book there a room. Other hotels offer this service for everyone. So check out this list, folks, to find the best solution for you.
