And another great reason to stay with us is to avoid downtown Panama City’s insane traffic. This kind of madness simply doesn’t occur in Balboa. No stress. Getting in- and out of town is a 5-minute ride without any stress. This is very

[Traffic madness] convenient if you drive your own rental car (which you can pickup at the nearby Albrook airport).

And at the Balboa Inn parking is free.

Why stay with us

We’re in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood, with access to everything you might need by public transport or a simple walk. Visit the Metropolitan Park in the morning, go to Amador just before lunch and after lunch visit the Miraflores Visitor Center. You can easily do 2-3 things a day while staying at the Balboa Inn.

Another day you can spend the morning in the Casco Viejo – a 5-minute taxi ride away – or walk up to the top of Ancon Hill, located right behind the Balboa Inn. Quite an enjoyable hike and you will be rewarded with beautiful views of the city’s skyline and the Panama Canal. Even if you have business downtown, you’ll enjoy returning to the calm environment of the Balboa Inn.​
