    Mail letter to US

    So you can mail a letter from the Panama Post Office to the US. I sent one letter, and it showed up 7 days later. (Stamp cost the same as in the US).

    Is this reliable? Do a lot of people use this service?

    (Is this a service from the Canal Zone days, or is this normal from other countries?)

    Re: Mail letter to US

    The worst delivery time from Panama to US I have experienced is about 35 days.

    That would be for registered mail - postage plus 60 cents. Non-registered mail could be slower on an average.

    I use it for all non-critical and non-time sensitive mailings.

    Tracking number? Whoa - didn't know you could do that. How much extra did that cost?
