Celebrating Our THIRD Year of Relocation Tours!
Our 6 day 5 night ALL-INCLUSIVE Relocation & Retirement Tour will introduce you to the inexpensive and wonderful lifestyle available to you in Panama. You’ll pay one flat fee for the Tour which will include all ground transportation, lodging, and meals during the Official Tour
Learn what life would be like living in Panama.
This is NOT a real estate buying tour. There is no agenda to “sell” you anything. My only goal is to introduce you to the Panamanian way of life. You will get information about homes for sale and rentals just so you can see what’s available at various prices. But I’m not trying to sell you anything. In fact, if you do decide to move to Panama, I strongly advise that you DO NOT BUY, it’s better to rent for awhile before you make a buying decision.
We’ll visit local shops and markets to discover the BETTER and AFFORDABLE way to live. Imagine dinner for two for less than $8 including drinks!
You’ll discover why so many people are moving to Panama!
The tour will take you from large metropolitan areas to resort beach areas that have every amenity and luxury you’d every need, and funky beach areas with a laid back atmosphere. You’ll also visit popular highland towns where thousands of expats live, and rural areas teeming with opportunity.
Every where we go, you will experience the warmth and love of life which is customary of the Panama people.
You will see for yourself how the Panama health care system works, how you can get health insurance for as little as $60 per month, and where prescription medication can cost far less than the US and can be bought without a prescription. Bring a list of medications you currently take to see what they will cost in Panama. International health insurance is also available which will cover you in Panama and your home country. You’ll be shocked at how affordable health insurance is in Panama. ( I pay $2000 a YEAR for international health insurance)
Everyone who has been on our tours says the highlight of the tour is the opportunity to visit with expats. You’ll have plenty of time to ask questions and get answers from people who have already made the move to Panama. See the photo below… this was a visit to Richard Detrich’s (author of “Escape to Paradise) home and coffee farm in Palmira.
You will meet with a reputable Panamanian attorney so you can learn about the benefits of the Panama Pensionado visa which entitles you to big discounts. Plus you’ll learn about other visa programs if you’re not retired. Our attorney will answer your questions about buying real estate or setting up a business, too. It’s all a lot easier than you think!
You’ll learn how to move your existing business offshore and how you can reduce your taxes by about $96,000 per year, per person.
I’ll help you get an offshore bank account set up – it’s much easier than you think.
Before we moved to Panama, I spent hundreds of hours researching how we would get things “done” when we moved here. To make your life easier and save you hundreds of hours of research, everyone on the tour gets my ROLODEX which includes:
- Health insurance companies
- Private hospitals
- Doctors, dentists and specialists
- CPA’s with expat & Panamanian experience
- Attorney for visas and business structures
- Shipping and moving companies (Tips for saving money, too)
- Pet relocation company (my step-by-step guide for a smooth transition)
- Trustworthy real estate agents and property managers (they are hard to find)
- How to get online orders (Amazon) and mail delivered
- How to send and receive faxes without using a fax machine
- We will help you set up an Offshore Bank Account!(if you stay a few days after the tour)
- How to get phone calls to/from your country in Panama… for free
- Learn How to Finance Your Life Offshore… Little Ways to Make Big Money
- Best place to buy or rent a car, and MUCH more.
NO ONE else is doing a tour like this in Panama.
You’ll be able to learn in 7 days if Panama is right for you and how you can improve your lifestyle with less expense and less stress! We visit a variety of different areas so you can decide which area is best for you.
You’ll fly in to Panama City to the Tocumen International Airport. My driver will meet you at the airport. We have made arrangements for you to stay at a beautiful hotel in the exclusive El Cangrejo area, with many restaurants and casinos within walking distance.
Speaking of walking distance, if you can’t walk 4-5 blocks on unlevel surfaces, go up and down stairs easily, and sit in a car 2-3 hours, this tour and Panama is NOT for you, but we can design you a private tour that works around your physical limitations.
Once you sign up for the tour, I will give you information about how to get FREE health care for the first 30 days you are in Panama (excluding pre-existing conditions). Just in case you get sick while in Panama, your health care will be taken care of. You’ll also learn what luggage you should and should NOT bring and how to save money if you use your cell phone.
You will see that taxis and buses are readily available, convenient, low cost, and versatile. You can compare these scenic, fresh air, and friendly rides to your present mode of commuting. A car and all associated expenses may not necessary in Panama depending on where you live.
There will be a bi-lingual American tour guide on the tour with you every step of the way to answer your questions about living in Panama and reveal some of the best kept secrets we’ve discovered since moving here… not to mention the six trips Jackie took to Panama before she made the move.
