If receiving stuff by mail is important for you or your business (Amazon packages and the like), be prepared: it’s a challenge, no matter where you go in Panama (or the region, for that matter). PO Boxes were introduced to solve the problem but it’s not cheap ($3-5 per pound). The good news is that there are plenty of options for this around Balboa Ave, at Mailboxes Etc (close to Urracá Park and inside Multiplaza, and in Paitilla, Casco Viejo and Trump Tower) and Airbox Express (nearby in La Cresta, 50th St and El Cangrejo). DHL has locations inside Multiplaza, and in Marbella, Bella Vista, Punta Pacífica and San Francisco, and FedEx in Trump Tower and Paitilla, and UPS close by in Bella Vista.
