Getting There in Fuerte amador

Edit This

Fuerte Amador and Fuerte Grant (also known as Fort Amador and Fort Grant) were formerly U.S. military bases that were established to protect the south entrance of the Panama Canal. After the forts were returned to Panama in 1999, Fuerte Amador was developed as popular tourist destination. Fuerte Amador owes it name to the first President of Panama and this city has been relevant in history since the old days of piracy.

Getting There by Plane

The easiest way to get to Fuerte Amador is by booking a flight to Panama City. The Tocumen International Airport (IATA airport code: PTY) is the airport that serves both Panama City and Fuerte Amador. Travelers from South America and North America should look into booking their flights through Copa Airlines because this is the main hub for this airline. Many international airlines offer direct flights to and from Panama City. Most nationalities do not require a visa to visit Panama for less than 90 days.

Getting from the Airport to Fuerte Amador

Getting to Fuerte Amador from the airport is quite easy. First you can either rent a taxi, take a private charter bus, or rent a car to arrive to your hotel. If you have just a few days in Panama, it may be best to arrange a tour with one of the tour operators from the portal zone. If you have more time, you may want to drive to Fuerte Amador.
