One of my reasons for moving to Panama was to get away from hot Texas summers and cold Texas winters… and the high utility costs that go along with extreme weather temperatures. I live in Boquete Panama, where it is right around 75-80F (23-26C) during the day and about 65-70 degrees at night. I don’t even have or need an air conditioner or heater at my house. That’s how I could go from $350 – $400 a month electric bills in Texas to $25 a month electric bills in Panama. It’s a significant saving, but even more importantly, it is just a BETTER WAY TO LIVE!
If I get in the mood for warmer weather, I can be at a Pacific Ocean beach in about an hour, or I can drive to the Caribbean in three hours.
Because Panama is only 9 degrees from the equator, the weather is the SAME ALL YEAR. We don’t have the hot time of year or the cold time of year in Panama. If you live by the coast, the weather is about 90 Fahrenheit (32 Celsius) all year! For every 1000 feet increase in elevation, the temperature drops 4 degrees. So, it’s easy for you to pick your ideal temperature based on the elevation.
Today I turned on the news and saw that much of North America is already experiencing cold, snowy weather. Yuck! I don’t miss that kind of weather at all.
So, for all you people who are putting up with this…
It is sure to warm you up!
