Dating a Panamanian Woman: Tips for Meeting Panamamian Girls

Do you plan on traveling to Panama in the next few weeks or months? Do you plan on finding girls to date when you visit Panama City? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

When it comes to Latinas, overall, Panamanian women are often overlooked. But the truth is, Panama women can be among the most attractive, fun, and direct that you’ll meet in the entire world.

Here are our top tips for dating a woman from Panama.

What Are Panamanian Women Like?

When you go to Panama, you can expect the women to have the following traits and qualities:

She Can Have A Distinct Mestiza Look 

The term ‘Mestizo’ (or ‘Mestiza’ for women) has traditionally been used to refer to someone of mixed European and Indigenous American descent. Over sixty-five percent of all Panamanians fall under this demographic, so the girl(s) you end up dating here stand a good chance of being Mestiza.

Generally speaking, the women in Panama have a lighter skin color in Panama City, and a darker one the farther away you get from the city.

She Takes Pride in Her Country 

Panamanians are very proud of their country. Don’t be surprised if the girl you meet has a shirt or a hat with the Panamanian flag (or a larger flag in her apartment) and speaks highly of Panama often.

She Knows How to Party 

Panama City is easily the best city for nightlife in Central America, and one of the best in Latin America as a whole. There’s a good reason for this: Panamanians know how to party.

Panama girls themselves have a very fun-loving attitude and will be eager to join a handsome Western gentleman for a night out on the town.

She’ll Be Direct with You 

Panamanian girls are among the most direct in Latin America, meaning the girl you date will tell you exactly how she feels about you. If you’ve done anything she’s not impressed by (such as the way you act or dress), she’ll let you know. On the other hand, if she likes you a lot, she’ll make that clear to you too.

Cities and Places 

The best city to meet Panamanian girls, by far, is Panama City. You’ll have plenty of opportunities for both day adventures and nightlife in this city.

When it comes to daytime, your best bet will be the malls and shopping districts. There are a lot of people in these districts, which means you shouldn’t have too much difficulty with finding attractive women to approach.

Examples of malls and shopping districts you can visit include:

  • Albrook Mall
  • Multiplaza Panama
  • AltaPlaza Mall
  • Multicentro.

For nightlife, there’s no better area than Calle Uruguay, which is filled with bars and clubs. The most famous ones there are:

  • La Tana 
  • Bling
  • El Sotano
  • La Mayor
  • Alejandros. 

Another good nightlight option is Casco Viejo. It is more of a touristy area, so it should be easy to meet women from other countries as well.

Outside of Panama City, the two best cities are David and Bocas del Toro. David is the second-largest city in Panama and is located farther inland in the mountains. Bocas del Toro is a beach city with an active nightlife and backpacker vibe.


Perhaps the easiest way to meet girls in Panama is through online dating. This way, you can talk to girls online and potentially set up a few dates before you even arrive.

The best dating app to use is Tinder, as there is always a high number of young women using it.

Here are our top tips to follow for dating Panama women and get a Latina girlfriend!

Bring Your A-Game 

Panamanian girls may love to party, but in the end, the man who they will appreciate the most is a well-dressed gentleman who brings his A-game. Trade your backpacking or hiking clothes for a nice blazer and be ready to dance and initiate flirting.

At the same time, take things slowly and be prepared to get to know her first before anything happens. You need to prove to her that you are indeed a gentleman and not just another Western tourist looking to get laid.

Be Wary of Prostitutes 

Prostitution is legal in Panama, and you can almost always find prostitutes or escorts when you’re out at the popular bars or clubs (or even on dating apps). The issue is that many prostitutes will act like they’re not and are genuinely interested in you, only to request money after you’ve had sex.

The trick is to try and determine if a girl is a prostitute before anything happens – a gathering of athletic, caring, and well-dressed girls outside of popular hotels or tourist spots is a major red flag.

Be Ready to Pay for The Date 

Panamanian girls much like Dominican women will always look down on a guy who expects her to share the expenses with him. Latin American countries like Panama are more traditional, and it’s expected for the man to take the lead. From the food to the drinks to the taxi fare, be prepared to sponsor your date with the girl you ask out.

Learn Spanish 

Panama is a country with a strong American influence so that some Panama girls will speak excellent English. Others, however, will not speak any English at all. Either way, the girl you date will highly appreciate it if you at least make an effort to talk in Spanish. If anything, you may end up switching between English and Spanish throughout the date.


Dating Panama women very much like dating Ecuadorian girls can be an enjoyable experience: they are attractive, honest, and direct with you and proud of the country they hail from. Keep the above tips we’ve covered in mind when you land in the country and find a girl who catches your eye.
