You will need this adaptor:

Socket Type A
to Plug Type B

Panama also uses Socket Type A, which is used in Nicaragua. If using an appliance that has a Type A Plug in the Type A Sockets of Panama, you will not need an adaptor.



The voltages found in Nicaragua (120V) and Panama (110V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.
