What do I do in case of emergencies, or if I fall ill?

Contact us on our 24/7 emergency number and we will assist you immediately: +507 6450-1093.

For medical emergencies in Panama City, contact the Paitilla Hospital, where most of the doctors speak English (and have studied in the United States or Europe) and offer high quality medical services.

Panama in general has excellent and reasonably-priced health care. Hospital San Fernando, Punta Pacifica and National Hospital, also offer very good health care options. In other cities in Panama, hospitals may not have the latest equipment, but doctors are well trained and professional (and usually speak English). We highly recommend all travelers to have international medical coverage, if necessary, purchase sufficient travel insurance before your departure from your home country.
