When making a trip from your country of origin to Panama, each traveler or family traveling together has a limit of cash that they can take with them which is $9,999.99. If you travel with cash exceeding $10,000, and you do not duly declare it at Customs, the total amount of money can be taken away. This modality is called "Commission of a Customs Fraud Crime" or even smuggling. The reason is mainly that by not declaring the "extra" amount of money, the customs authorities assume that the intention is to harm the tax interests of the country or even to use that money for illegal purposes.

This video clip is somewhat shocking. A woman is trying to monitor one child while the other sticks his arm in the luggage conveyor at Tocumen. Travelers with kids need to be aware that there is equipment here which is not child proofed. http://www.tvn-2.com/nacionales/Nino-atrapado-carrusel-aeropuerto-Tocumen_0_4653284678.html
