So you’re interested in hitting up some strip clubs or brothels in Panama. Well this article should help answer the initial questions about where to go and general pricing in addition to what to expect from each establishment.
Whether or not the focus of your trip is sex tourism you may want to just dip your toe in the water for a second just to see how it feels. The main pick up bars and/or brothels are in no particular order: La Bocatoreña, Habanos, Le Palace, La Mayor, La Gruta Azul.
Located at the entrance of Casco Viejo next door to La Mayor, I would consider La Bocatoreña a step from it’s next door neighbor. This is the spot to check out during the day as it is where a lot of Habanos girls will work during off hours, so you could find some of the same girls, but at a fraction of the cost. If you meet a dime piece from La Bocatoreña and then see her at Habanos that night don’t expect that cheap day prices will carry over into the night. This place is not by any standard, nice, but it’s a spot to check out during the day if you are so inclined.
Pricing will run you $50-100 on site typically.
Probably the most infamous pick up bar in Panama, Habanos is the nightly go to spot. This is an open air bar where working girls swarm by the the dozens. I mean, literally, you’ll walk in and be groped and grapped at by women. It will give you a sense of role reversal. Sit back, grab some drinks and call girls over to your table to get to know them a bit. There is no motel on premise, but there is a pay by the hour behind Habanos. This option would keep the price down below $150. Once you leave site you’ll be looking at $150+
Here, you can find a little bit of everything for everyone. Place doesn’t really open til 9pm so no point to go early. For the VIP experience at Habanos you should check out the private VIP party suites offered: read more.
The most high end of the establishments, all the girls are total dime pieces and dressed in matching white lingerie. Honestly, just walking through the door is quite seductive. This is a strip club by nature, but the dancing sucks – like it’s a terrible strip club, but a great place to meet dimes. The cost to head off site is pretty steep so expect to be paying more like $300-500.
The oldest establishment in Panama, it’s hard to miss when you’re entering Casco Viejo. It’s the big green building on the right with the clear signage saying LA MAYOR. So I don’t recommend going here, but if you are so inclined check it out. This is where the taxi drivers will take their breaks. Pop in for 15 min for $25. Imagine what you’ll find based on that – done!
La Gruta Azul
If you’re into the BBWs then you may want to make your way to Gruta Azul. It’s considered to be on the lower end of the scale, but to each their own when it comes to taste in women. This spot isn’t downtown so you may want a host to direct you and make sure you’re sorted. This spot is also cheap like $25.
Feel free to comment and add any additional details about these spots or the topic in general. If you’re coming to Panama on a bachelor style trip then the best way to experience the red light side of Panama is go with a VIP nightlife host who would get the deals, hook up the best spots, and make sure you’re not getting ripped off.
