Lodging


Panama City

Dorm Style lodging at IEMPA main office (on arrival and departure, when available)
Room # 1: 8 beds (4 bunk beds)
Room # 2: 12 beds (6 bunk beds)
Room # 3: 4 beds (2 bunk beds)

Rooms are air conditioned and have showers with warm water. We have linens and towels but they must be brought to all other sites other than hotels. We accept a donation of $3.00 per person per night in all church lodging to cover laundry and other expenses.

Teams may also choose a hotel on in-coming and out-going days. A good suggestion is the Riande Hotel-close to the airport with free airport shuttle service to and from the airport-hotel.
