Living in Panama City, Panama

Thomas shares his experience moving to Panama and living in the El Cangrejo neighborhood in Panama City, Panama.

El Cangrejo is known for its vibrant nightlife, with hip bars, laid-back brewpubs, and busy casinos, many clustered around Via Argentina Street. Upscale global eateries, smart cafes, and laid-back coffee shops dot the area, and shopping malls sell mainstream fashion. Leafy Andres Bello Park attracts joggers and walkers, while a small green square nearby is dominated by a sculpture of Albert Einstein’s head.

See this review that John posted on TripAdvisor about his experience with Panama Relocation Tours:

For those entertaining a move to Panama there is no better investment than taking this tour. The planning and detail to attention are first class. My wife and I had the pleasure of being on tour #213, which had fantastic tour personnel, all of whom were extremely knowledgeable and engaging, The sampling of stops provided great variety as to the options regarding beaches to mountains. All of the hotels were excellent and the stops concerning rental options and related matters provided information not readily gleaned from a conference or reading material. A true palette of Panama was appreciated with a wealth of information from expats already living the dream. Their experiences augmented each stop, with honest appraisals of the challenges and rewards involved in such a move. PRT’s redefines what a five star experience is!
