Living in Panama

Panama is the paradise of Central America, combining all the elements of tropical living with the region’s fastest-growing business center. Only Panama offers the fun and excitement of cosmopolitan Panama City, the Miami of Central America, along with wide beaches, lush mountains and postcard islands. In Panama, you can find your niche, the budget, and the lifestyle that suits your dreams.

Living in Panama is easy for many expatriates. Spanish is the native language, but English is widely spoken and the U.S. dollar is accepted throughout the country. Many people are surprised when they visit Panama for the first time. After decades of international investment, the infrastructure is first-rate in most areas, with wide highways connecting many regions.

More than any other country in the region, Panama is welcoming to foreign buyers and investors. The internationally-praised retired program offers ex-pats a wide variety of discounts and services. Panama has routinely named a top spot for retirement, thanks to the program and the availability of international-standard health care and facilities. U.S. News and World Report recently referred to Panama as “the gold standard of overseas retirement residency options.”

But living in Panama can also be a challenging and exhilarating experience. There are complexities and nuances to settling into the Panama community. It’s part of the fun! But it can also lead to unnecessary headaches.
