A friend sent me a notice that Multiservices International de Chiriquí, S. A. was moving November 1st. I wasn’t familiar with this business and I decided to go by and have a look. It is a mail forwarding service from the US as well as a FedEx agent.
I talked to Cynthia Gomez, who greeted me with a very pleasant smile, when I entered their facility. She speaks excellent English and this is a plus for those that are new to Panama and haven’t had the chance to acquire Spanish skills.
She gave me some basic information on their mail service (Pakya). They have one delivery a week from Florida. Packages and boxes are charged at $3.00 a pound plus any duty and taxes.
Mail is $2.00 a pound, with a minimum of one pound.
On November 1, they will move to the Manuligo Building, next to Viajes Fenix in front of Supermarkado Romero in Doleguita. Calle H Norte y Ave 1 Este.
If you are looking for a means of receiving mail and packages from the US, then this may be one you want to consider. If you drop in, tell Cynthia you saw her on Chiriquí Chatter.
