The mural in the featured image is a painting on a wall in Boquete. The painting is a good way to describe the people who come on the Panama Relocation Tours – people from all over the world, all different age groups, and from many different backgrounds who all have one thing in common… they are considering moving to Panama. By the end of day one our tour group “bonds”. Everyone has a great time meeting each other and sharing their reasons for moving offshore.
Everyone on the tour said they thought the tour was the best way to explore Panama – especially for their first visit. Someone else is doing the driving, finding hotels, places to eat and making arrangements to meet with expats all over the country – all while learning about what is required to move and live in Panama. Panama Relocation Tours takes care of everything so you can relax and learn about living in Panama
We had a big group, 18 people, for the March 2014 tour. Luckily, we had already switched to the bigger bus to it was a comfortable tour for everyone. Normally we don’t allow more than 12 people on the tour… 14 maximum. Eighteen people is really too many and so we will not be doing tours with that many people again. We prefer smaller groups and so do the restaurants!
The Panama Relocation Tours start in Panama City. Our first stop is usually Coronado but many of our previous tour guests have been disappointed in Coronado so we checked out Gorgona this time. Gorgona is only a few minutes east of Coronado and it has more affordable prices in both single family homes and condos. Here are a few photos from our tour in Gorgona
Panama Relocation Tours is a moving classroom. While we are traveling from one location to the next we provide information about the various visa options available, how to get a criminal history report, affordable health insurance, moving pets to Panama, moving your household goods to Panama in a container ( or why you might not want to), tips for finding the best rentals or houses for sale, how to buy a car in Panama, and much more…..
In most of the towns we visit, we meet with expats who live there. These are expats who do NOT have something to sell, they just share their experiences about moving and living in Panama. The whole group was invited to a visit an expat couple at their home in Valle Escondido.
Meals are always a fun time for the group to relax and get to know each other.
While driving along the road, we saw a lot of big trees with pink flowers and covered with this strange looking pods…. a CASHEW!
