Airport transfer

We will be arriving in PC tomorrow around 10:30pm and will then need to get to our hotel. Will there be taxis large enough to take a family of 5 and luggage?

Thanks

There are mini-van taxis, but you may need to wait for one. Don't worry -- they will show up. As you step out of the terminal to the taxi zone, the taxi wranglers can be very aggressive -- grabbing your luggage and wanting to put you into a taxi or two. Just be insistant that you don't want two taxis, you want a mini van. You may have to wait a few minutes, but you'll get one.

And, please, don't listent to that BS about washing fruit with iodine. If you would eat a Washington apple or a Georgia peach, you should have no fear about a Panamanian mango or lettuce from Cerro Punta.

$40 is WAY above the trarriffed rate!! Don't pay more than $30 including tolls and tips! There is a set, zone rate from Tocumen to the city.

Though you don't say where your hotel is.

$30 to downtown - more if going somewhere beyond the city itself.
