driving your rental car in Panama
In Panama you have right-hand-traffic, the rules are pretty the same like in Europe
The traffic is not very stressful, nobody is in rush- except in Panama-City.
For driving in Panama, you don’t need an international driving license, the European license is enough.
Everybody, who crosses the border to Panama with his own car needs an obligation car-insurance (to buy at the border). You´ll get a special stamp in your passport.
The gas, comparing to other countries in Latin America (Venezuela not included) is very cheap. The gallon (3,785 l) costs around 3 dollar.
