This post about Panamanian women is the first of a series of guest posts by Dating Dominican.
Panamanian women don’t get a lot of love around these parts. Most consider the girls in Panama to be far inferior to their counterparts down south (see for yourself here).
No one claims Panamanian girls can compete with the likes of Venezuelans or Colombians. Most don’t even consider the girls in Panama to be as attractive as other women in Central America.
Sure, Panamanian women look better than the ones from Guatemala and Nicaragua, but that’s not saying much. Most travelers consider Ticas and the women in El Salvador better than the ones in Panama.
Sadly, that’s just not true. The women in Panama City are some of the best in Latin America.
You just need to know where to find them. That’s where I come in. After spending months in this small Central American country, I figured out the lay of the land and layed a few of these sexy chicas.
What Are Panamanian Women Like?
On average, I’d describe the women in Panama to look like classic Latinas. I’m talking dark, tanned skin and long black hair down to their ass cracks. I’m talking shorter girls with nice curves and big brown eyes.
From a demographics standpoint, the women in Panama are generally Mestizas. This means they’re mixed with Native Indian and White genes. This produces the darker skin and hair while still having the stunning European facial features.
Over 65% of Panamanians are Mestizos. 10% of the country is black, while around 15% of Panamanian girls are completely white.
These numbers should give you an idea of what Panamanian women will look like. You can expect more women with light complexion in Panama City, while Atlantic coast cities and towns will feature more dark skinned girls.
Basically, you can find any and every skin tone of women in Panama—outside of pasty girls who look like they’re from Ukraine. This isn’t the Dominican Republic where most girls will be darker.
From a personality perspective, I wasn’t able to discern too many common traits between girls. I didn’t find the women here flakey like Colombian girls. Most of the commonalities came from social class.
The upper-class girls spoke great English, while the poorer women didn’t. Some middle-class chicks did speak English because they worked in tourism. Still, I’d suggest learning a little Spanish before you go.
The more Spanish you know the easier it will be to meet girls in Panama. While Panama City is an international city, the country still speaks Spanish.
Another benefit of learning Spanish is you look less like a sex tourist, which is a huge deal when trying to date the upper-class chicks.

Panama City: The Absolute Best City to Meet Panamanian Girls
If you want to date Panamanian women, then there’s only one city to visit:
Panama City, Panama.
The capital of this small country is simply the only city with a large enough population to make meeting women easy.
There isn’t even a city in the country that has over 100,000 people when excluding metro areas and the greater Panama City metro area.
If you want girls in Panama, the capital is your only option. Panama City, or PTY, is one of the biggest cities in Central America. It’s also the nicest and filled with every modern convenience one could think of.
While cost of living is high in PTY, the city offers one of the highest standard of living in all of Latin America, right up there with Chile. Don’t come here if you’re a broke backpacker. Come here if you want to date Latinas in a safe, relaxed city.
There’s around 1 million people living in Panama City, Panama but the city feels much bigger due to the sizable expat population, backpackers, and all the Venezuelans living there now. This is a big city.
With lodging, you can stay in a few different areas. I found the absolute best areas to stay are:
- Casco Viejo
- Obarrio / El Cangrejo
Marbella is one of the nicest areas in all of Panama. The small neighborhood is right next to the Hard Rock Hotel and within walking distance to a number of bars, clubs, and restaurants. If you can afford it, stay here.
If you enjoy colonial architecture, then Casco Viejo is another great area with solid logistics. There’s many bars and clubs here, too. My problem with this area is the high number of backpackers and hookers found here.
If budget is a concern, then Obarrio or El Cangrejo are solid neighborhoods. They’re not cheap, but still a little less expensive than Marbella and with good logistics.
Panama has a good economy, so I don’t recommend staying in cheap lodging if you want to date quality women here. The middle and upper-class girls will not be impressed with your shithole hotel or hostel.

Other Cities in Panama
There are no other cities in Panama that are great for dating. If you want to visit a few others, here are three I recommend:
- David: Second largest city in Panama and some decently attractive women. In the mountains, but close to the beach. This isn’t a bad city to spend a week or two when you get bored with big city living.
- Colon: Caribbean port city. Not a bad place to spend a weekend, as it’s easy to get to from PTY. Quality of women here isn’t great.
- Bocas del Toro: Beach town filled with backpacker nightlife and European girls. If you’re young, this isn’t a bad spot. However, Bocas is pricey, especially in high season.
The Ultimate Guide to Meeting Girls in Panama
Now we’re getting to the good stuff. If you want to meet, greet, and seduce Panamanian women, then you’re in the perfect place. Below you’ll find everything you need to know to get laid in this country.
Here’s how it’s done:
#1: Online Dating in Panama
The easiest way to get laid in Panama is with online dating. PTY is a big city and there’s lot of single girls using online dating sites and apps to meet men, especially foreigners.
If you’re over the age of 25, I’d recommend using Latin American Cupid.
There’s 300+ new women on the site every week in Panama City between the ages of 18-32 and many of them are cute. Age won’t matter to them much, so this is a great place for men in their 30s to look.
Tinder is another great option in Panama. There’s a solid amount of women on the site in PTY. This is the best option for younger guys, although I’d recommend any traveler try it while in the country.
Finally, you can also try the site Amo Latina.
One thing to note:
Always ask girls in Panama what they do for work or if they study. Since there are many hookers in Panama City, you’ll want to have a clear idea of her job. If not, you may waste a lot of time talking with a hooker. Or worse, you might end up banging a hooker who wants money after the deed is already done. And, with all of the problems that are currently prevalent in Venezuela, more and more working girls are flocking to places like Panama City in search of a better life.
I can hardly blame them, but it does put a bit of a damper on the dating scene, and it’s best to just get it out of the way, up front, by asking a simple question about her life.
If she dodges your questions, dodge her.
This is a waste of time, as we don’t promote that shit here on Trouble.

#2: Day Game in Panama City, Panama
Panama City is hot and tropical. You don’t want to be walking around all day in the heat. You’ll sweat way too much. As such, most of the day game spots are centered around the malls.
The best malls to meet women at include:
- Albrook Mall
If you don’t like malls, you may find a few women walking around Casco Viejo during the day.
The malecon can be decent, too. Many girls walk and jog along the path here, but I found it to be hit or miss. Being in workout clothes would make your malecon approaches a lot smoother.
#3: Nightlife in Panama City, Panama
In my opinion, the nightlife in Panama City is a tough nut to crack.
The main issue is prostitution.
As sex tourism is rampant in PTY, any girl that goes out alone or with just one “friend” should be considered a working girl.
As well, most upper-class chicks go out in huge groups and don’t appreciate being approached by random foreigners with bad Spanish. The combination of these factors make things pretty tough without a high level of game and Spanish ability.
Still, the nightlife here can be decent if you find the right spots. Here are a few of my favorites:
- Relic Bar: Kind of a backpacker spot in Casco Viejo. Great if it gets crowded, but that can be hit or miss. Lots of Panamanian English speakers.
- Bling: This is a big club in the Hard Rock Hotel. It’s a high-end place and not a place to roll solo. Come with a few friends or a date. There’s also a rooftop bar here that’s pretty fun. Prices are high and hookers often around.
- La Tana: My favorite club in PTY right now. Come here if you want to meet high-end chicks. Spanish and bankroll seems to be a requirement here.
Panamanian Girls Tips and Tricks
While I’d love to say you need a ton of tricks and tips to meet women in Panama, that’s not the case.
If you know how to game Latinas, you’ll do fine here.
If you’re new to Latin America, PTY can be frustrating.
The main issues are the high costs and all the Venezuelan prostitutes. You really have to screen girls hard to make sure they have real jobs and won’t try to charge you once the deed it done. If you can do that, then PTY can be a player’s paradise.
Screening often requires Spanish here. I’ve said it before, but make sure you learn a little before you arrive. If you don’t, you’ll certainly end up wasting time with girls who are only after your pocketbook.
Panamanian Women – From A to Z
Using the information above, you should find everything you’d ever need to know about Panamanian girls.
There’s some quality women in this country, but they can be tougher to find than in other spots.

“The women in Panama City are some of the best in Latin America.”
I absolutely agree. I was involved with a woman there (very attractive & stylish latina, and commented on how “plain” gringas were when she visited the USA on her visa).
Absolutely love the medium-complexion Panamenas with the pretty hair and contrasting eyebrows, clear eyes, and very feminine style.
It’s well worth visiting in my opinion. Bocas del Toro is over-run with loud, messy gringos and backpacker types just as you said, and unfortunately foreigners buying the land etc. drove up prices. (As a Panamian once told me). But still worth seeing.
There are some tiny islands (forgot the name) where indigenous indians still live. You can buy a fish lunch and have a nap in a hammock between palm trees. Definitely a cool experience.
Thanks for your comment and for sharing your experience too!
Are you stupid ? This is the most racist article I have read as a Panamanian woman. Are you selecting meat at a market … “stunning European features”? No bruh our various amounts of African Ancestry is what makes us stunning .. you sound so stupid and please don’t come to our country. Sincerely the Afro Latina woman from Panama.
Agreed. I wish I could ban idiots like this from my country.
Leanna!!! you said a mouthful….. I stopped reading when I got to “stunning European features”
Sorry you’re ugly.
As a “tanned skin” Panamanian woman with “long dark hair down to my curvy ass” this article is not only disgusting but also grossly incorrect. First of all, while it is true that most of the country is mixed, our “stunning features” come from a mixture of African, European and Native American genes so please do just a bit of research before you post something online. Please keep your Eurocentric ideas of beauty to yourself. Whatever census you got your numbers from is wrong as well and most recently has been reflected in Panama’s to show the most of the country consists of mulattos or amaridians. Lastly “quality women” can be found all over Panama and are not a piece of meat that are here just for your enjoyment.
Well said from what sounds like a woman that needs a little bit more of “something” in her life. Women are here for our enjoyment and pleasure. Your lengthy response to this article is a reflection of what happens when we give women the same rights as men.
Kyle, great article. Keep them coming.
Yeah, she sounds a bit bitter 😉
What panamanian girls are not vergin before wedding ?
Probably most aren’t, lol
Great article. Every person on earth has their own personal preferences so don’t let the skanky race baiters bother you. To each his own.
Europeans are the most beautiful and YOU know it. The only skank is you who slums and screws monkeys.
That time of the month, Tatiana?
Panamanian women are so ugly they have flat native american noses no foreheads and dark leathery ugly skin. Stunning women are women from Europe who actually have foreheads, necks and high cheekbones. I have not seen one panamaian woman with symmetry they have oddly round faces or oblong and weird features so if you think indigenous guatemalans or bolivians are attractive you will think they are gorgeous LOL one thing I can say they are so jealous of truly pretty women with european features they cannot compete though they color in their eyebrows and define their squinty eyes with liner mascara and a hell of a lot of mascara. Then they try to tear down a European woman with stunning features because she doesn’t spend an hour on her hair. They have no self esteem either they will sleep with a 70 year old for money any gringo gringo equals any white person including europeans and canadians in panama.Isn’t it amazing how european women have such stunning features that we need no makeup at all. And as for pasty I have naturally black hair and porcelain skin no dirty indian can compete with that beauty. You are slummers who can’t get white women obviously LOL enjoy panama and their asymmetrical features and NO they are not friendly like colombians obviously you have not traveled and if you think ugly mulatto dominicans are pretty well… No one can account for bad taste. As for beauty here is the lowdown on latin america. For extremely beautiful european types you can only find these in Brazil Argentina and Costa Rica. Colombian women wear a lot of makeup and come enhanced by plastic surgeons along with venezuelans the second tier is colombians anfd venezuelans because at least they can pass for white and look beautiful the rest are amerindians with blacjk if that is what yopu find pretty which is doubtful siunce they do not match anything da vinci claimed is beautiful you probably are not looking for pretty but slutty or sexy. panamanian women wear A LOT of makeup and keep their hair long because of their round shapeless faces no stunning square jaw oines like supermodels here. And if you like nappy hair then panama is your place but do not confuse beauty with something you find attractive because it is black and wild. That by definition is sexy to you NO^T to a normal man ith average to above average intelligence with normal self esteem. You are on here let’s face it be3cause if you resort to sleeping with a black looking mixed dominican you cannot get a white woman and need to feel superior in some way. I am sure you’ll love panama LOL! The women are so desperate in panama they will throw themselve3s at you if you bring in a social security check of 650 a month.
That was a very long hateful/negative speech towards Panamanian women in general. Not sure what they might have done to you but from what I’ve seen these past few days in Panama City most of the women have hour glass shaped bodies that a lot of European women would give an arm and a leg for. And trust me being from the Balkans with many trips to all over Europe I can tell you that not all European women have this endless beauty that u speak off. In conclusion lets be a lil more appreciative of the exotic beauty in people and keep the long negative comments to ourselves, best regards, at
White women with white features are absolutely the best.
In Asia, they openly admit it.
Time for the Latin countries to admit it, too.
Haha! This is funny and I recently became friends with 2 Columbian and 2 Panamanian women here who live in the USA. They ALL are married or were married to older white men divorcees…lol Mail order brides?At least one is for certain… I’m blond With European background…white girl.
They love me because I’m like “curvy” “sexy” “diva” like they tag me… they are really flirty and fun and forward so I have a blast but definitely lower on the class and self control aspects
They are @hot” but ya….I’m much hotter 😂
Im divorced, twice, and they were those “white women” you refer to as being “lucky to get”, lol. Im not interested in stuck up, it is not feminine or beautiful. Wars have been fought for centuries to get out from under that “royal, exclusive, privileged” attitude and its abuses. Its mostly for those who have a shallow view of what is truly treasurable in this world. Spoiled and self absorbed, not one of those things, no. IM not attacking you, just relating experience. Have a spoiled rotten european beauty show me that attitude, and watch how fast I ignore them, despite their self described beauty and value, lol. Be happy to demonstrate;)
He didn’t know you are Afro
He noticed the stunning European ones
Absolutely nothing wrong with that , it’s his personal taste ok ?
most non-negro men find African women unattractive in the extreme. no one wants to date them, and your angry ugly ignorant comment is a great example of why.
As an African,I prefer them to you rotten looking skinny bones
Yo mean you are skinny as bones
Thumps up to you
