U.S. Embassy Panama reminds U.S. citizens in Panama to exercise increased caution due to crime.  U.S. citizens are reminded to take appropriate precautions and raise your personal safety level of awareness to avoid kidnapping.  Business owners may be targeted by criminals, who may offer advantageous land or other business deals to lure victims into a ransom situation.  Take care in vetting new business contacts and when setting meeting locations. The Embassy also reminds all travelers and residents in Panama that the holiday season brings with it a spike in crimes of opportunity.  Always maintain awareness of your surroundings. 

Actions to Take:

    • Parts of the Mosquito Gulf due to crime.
    • Parts of the Darién Region due to crime.
  • Read the Department of State’s COVID-19 page before you plan any international travel.
