<...but they do not use credit cards at least not from tourists.>

US credit cards are ubiquitous in Panama. ATMs readily accept them to get cash. I travel a lot and rarely carry more than a couple hundred dollars in local currency. Discover Card is not widely accepted abroad, and even Amex is a distant third to Visa and Mastercard.
