The way out of Panama to the west is the Panamerian Highway. It starts out at the Puente de las Americas, and then heads out. The best bet to start hitching on this large road is to go to the bus terminal in Panama city and catch an 80 cent bus to La Chorrera. The panamerican passes through this town and there you will find 3 petrol stations in a row on the right side of the road. Apparently the third is the one where the most trucks stop off (don't ask why...). It's easier to talk to drivers than to thumb it, but both do work.

Hitchhiking out

West

The way out of Panama to the west is the Panamerian Highway. It starts out at the Puente de las Americas, and then heads out. The best bet to start hitching on this large road is to go to the bus terminal in Panama city and catch an 80 cent bus to La Chorrera. The panamerican passes through this town and there you will find 3 petrol stations in a row on the right side of the road. Apparently the third is the one where the most trucks stop off (don't ask why...). It's easier to talk to drivers than to thumb it, but both do work.

Towards Colon

From Av 12/Santa Ana Park you can catch a bus Transistmica which leaves the city on the road to Colon. After around 20 km you will hit the intersection with the Panama City Highway.
