Panama Security Overview
Panama’s crime statistics indicate a high level of robberies, murders and assaults in San Miguelito, El Chorillo and Juan Diaz. Most crimes are among members of rival drug gangs; however, there is potential for foreign visitors to be affected if caught in the ‘wrong place at the wrong time’. Low-level crime exists in major cities; pickpocketing and theft mainly affect busy public spaces and restaurants in Panama. Colon is identified as having a high level of crime, and violent protests are rising.

The roads are inadequately marked and in poor condition, with many drivers showing little regard for other road users or road traffic laws. There is a significant risk of road traffic collisions (RTCs) due to the unpredictable driving conditions and poor infrastructure.
