To make sure nothing happens to you, take these common safety tips seriously. Panama is in principle safe, but especially pickpocketing happens quite often.

Take care of your valuables

This means: don't wear expensive jewelry in public, keep your cell phone, wallet and camera close to your body at all times and only take as much cash as you need.

Don't drift around alone at night

Obvious, but very important. The best thing to do is to make appointments with trustworthy people you have met during your trip. Avoid dark alleys and know which neighborhoods to stay away from. You should take a cab on the way home.

Better safe than sorry

Get the number of a trustworthy cab company from the hotel to avoid unwanted incidents.

Copy your travel documents

Stow original and copy in different places. It is not a mistake to have some passport pictures with you.

But if you do get robbed, cooperate: Valuables can be replaced very quickly.
