Is Panama Safe for Solo Female Travelers?

Posted by |


France has been writing on this blog for over a year. You can follow France and her adventures HERE...

More and more recently, fellow female travelers to Panama contact me with one pressing question:

Is it safe to travel here solo as a female?

As someone who usually travels abroad alone and is well-aware of the issues and stereotypes that comes with being a single female traveler in certain spaces, the question is completely understandable. With many stories of travelers who have been taken advantage of or worse abroad, there is a growing concern for safety amongst women. Thus, I’d like to tackle these issues head on.

Every woman wants to feel safe wherever they go, and they should (guys too, if we're completely honest). Experience has taught me to make safety one of my main priorities when I travel. I want to know if I can go out alone, is public transportation safe, and also if being alone as a woman will bring me unwanted attention.

In general, I’ve never felt unsafe in any part of Panama.

While the catcalling in Panama City specifically can really become exhausting (to get a feel about differences in perspectives, this has already been covered on this blog before by others, here and here), it never escalates beyond unwanted comments to make me feel physically unsafe.

Tourism that respects...

I’ve traveled alone to the beaches, to various parts of the city, and the countryside, without any issues on both public and private transportation. I also go out alone often and don’t feel uncomfortable or stand out since women are widely visible in public. When I’ve had issues or gotten lost, I’ve never had trouble finding someone to offer me assistance.

With that being said, no utopia exists where a woman doesn’t have to be aware of their surroundings at all times.

Here at Habla Ya they'll send you a couple of links to some safety reading material (click here and here for example). It's quite dense and a bit over the top if you ask me, but once again, it's better to be safe than sorry. And the practical advice related to excursions, nature and dealing with local circumstances, certainly stems from their broad experience in the Language Travel and Study Abroad industry.

Traveling solo can be a freeing experience that allows to learn about yourself and the place you are visiting. I have enjoyed every excursion I’ve taken in Panama and the opportunity to see the country at my own pace.
