Central America/Panama Charts


Anyone kind enough to point me to the right direction on where or how I can get charts for Central America more specific Panama for use with OpenCPN? Thank you in advance.

Re: Central America/Panama Charts

As far as Panama goes, the best charts by far in the Bauhaus cruising guide. Far more accurate than anything else out there. His cruising guide can be bought online. We got scanned in charts from the book but not sure if he puts those on his webwsite or if another cruiser scanned them.

Philosaophical point for me is that I would not have used the scanned charts if we had not bought the book. He is a small operation and I want to help him keep putting out the book.

The CM93 charts were pretty good for most areas, but, except for Bauhaus in Panama, they all pretty much have errors.

There are S-63/S-57 charts for Panama available. 10 in total plus 5 issued by the Panama Channel Authority two weeks ago which reflect the new locks etc.
The latter we have not seen yet in the Chartworld catalogue. Admiralty is listing them already.
