With its rich history and culture combined with breathtaking sights, Panama City is a truly magical place to visit.

While walking along the Casco Viejo, Panama’s cobblestone-paved historical center, it’s easy to forget the rues and woes of your daily life, cast aside your worries and responsibilities, and just let yourself enjoy.

If you’re a digital nomad and you’ve chosen Panama City as your home for the next few months, you won’t regret it—the city will sweep you off your feet. Make sure you keep your head in the game, though—you need to stay focused on your work even in a place like Panama, no matter how many distractions try to undermine you.

One of the best ways to keep up with your work is to find a motivating coworking space. A good enough space with a productive community can be enough to boost your creativity and determination. It can keep you efficient and productive, and help you do more in less time.

Unfortunately, sometimes it can be hard to take a pick, especially if you’re new in town. To help you find what you need, we have compiled a list of ten best—and one worst—coworking spaces in Panama City.

My Office Panama is our favorite place to cowork in Panama City

If you’re looking for a space that’s beautiful, conducive to hard work, and passionate about building a strong community, look no further. My Office is all that and more.

It is located in Obarrio, by the Calle 50, right across the street from the Japanese Embassy.

My Office prides itself on building a strong community. It organizes a lot of different workshops, lectures, and events. The members often have community lunches and drinks. The space also hosts TedX talks, and the members get a discount if they want to attend.

The Wi-Fi they provide is fast and reliable, so this is a great space if your work demands a high flow of data. You can easily give or attend a Skype-based lesson without fear of the internet causing you troubles in the middle of it.

My Office provides air conditioning, standing desks, and ergonomic chairs, so it is comfortable to work in. There is plenty of extra equipment, including sound and video recording tools, projectors, microphones, Chromecast, and printing equipment. They come at a little extra or no charge. Depending on the work you do, this can be a crucial benefit. For example, if you’re a travel vlogger, you might need a high-quality video recording system, so it’s great that your coworking space can provide it for you.

There are Skype and podcast rooms, personal lockers, and phone booths. The onsite restaurant is pretty good, so that’s convenient if you don’t want to go out of your way to eat, or you tend to get too immersed in your work. There are no other restaurants in the immediate surroundings, but there is a kitchen you can use.

You can get tea and coffee free of charge, but if you want something more elaborate than a simple cup of coffee, you have to pay extra. There is a Starbucks just around the block, so that’s great if you start feeling a bit homesick.

When you want to chill out, you can play table tennis with other nomads, browse through the library, or just enjoy a beer or a glass of wine, free of charge!

My Office is wheelchair accessible, so it can accommodate all of its visitors.

All in all, this is a fantastic coworking space with plenty of perks, so if you’re looking for a place to work in Panama City, make sure to give it a go!

Innova 109

Source: Coworker

Innova 109 is located in the City of Knowledge (Ciudad del Saber), which, funnily enough, used to be a military base. It is a beautiful, chill coworking space with many bean bags scattered around the place, giving it the air of relaxation. The pastel green and orange tones make it truly pleasant to spend time in, and cause you to feel more content and at ease.

If you don’t like bean bags, that’s okay—there are incredibly comfortable ergo chairs for you to use. If you need them, there are also Skype rooms and phone booths.

If community meals, events, and programs weren’t enough, Innova 109 takes member involvement to the next level—it even has a sports team. It provides a pool table to entertain you during your break, and the space is dog-friendly, so your four-legged weirdo doesn’t have to feel lonely while you’re at work. If you start feeling a bit stiff from sitting for too long, you can always have a splash in their swimming pool.

There is free tea, coffee, and beer, but there is also an onsite café. Sometimes a simple coffee just doesn’t do the trick, and we’ve all felt the urge to get an extra-large Mochaccino from time to time, so a barista is there to make your wishes come true.

  • 24/7
Price Per day USD 15
Per week USD 50
Per month USD 135

CoworkingPTY is our least favorite place to cowork in Panama City

Source: Coworkingpty

While CoworkingPTY is far from terrible, it is our least favorite coworking space in Panama City. The most significant downsides to this space are

  1. Uncomfortable seating
  2. Cramped space
  3. Bad lighting

The chairs are pretty decent, but you won’t be comfortable for an entire 6+ hours session. There are no standing desks or bean bags, so you can’t shift your position from time to time, which would be tough on your back even if the chairs were of supreme quality.

The space feels too cramped up. Small rooms contain too many desks to be comfortable, and if you’re claustrophobic, you won’t feel pleasant.

The biggest issue, though, is the lighting. The space doesn’t get enough natural light. The artificial light is bright enough, but a bit glaring as well. If you’re in any degree sensitive to light, you’re likely to suffer from a headache at the end of your session.
