Panama Is For You

“We have everything God needed to make paradise. Great farming, beaches, mountains, wildlife you wouldn’t believe, people so beautiful you could cry.”John Le Carré (The Tailor of Panama)


Panama epitomizes everything an idyllic destination should be.

It is a mystery thriller if only for the fact that everything your mind imagines and dreams you will see, hear, feel and enjoy when you visit Panama are actually reality with more twists and turns than your favorite roller coaster ride.

Panama is the only place in the world where you can see the sunrise on the Pacific and set on the Atlantic.

Panama, where can you swim the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean on the same day!

Panama, where you can find a capital city that has a rain forest within city limits!

Panama, where can you find the 8th wonder of the world – the Panama Canal!

However, the fun and adventure don’t stop there. Panama wants to be explored, cuddled, loved, and remembered by all who come to visit.

In fact, many came to visit and never want to leave!  They stay to call Panama their new home, enthralled and mesmerized not only by its intrinsic beauty but by the overall quality of life living in Panama can offer them.

Panama reduces stress and promotes health and wellness.

From fishing, diving, hiking, bird-watching to real-world living indigenous cultures and exotic wildlife adventures, Panama is a true haven for everyone.

You can take an ocean-to-ocean hike across the Isthmus through dense jungle, live with ancient Indian tribes experiencing their culture, or surf on the world-famous Santa Catalina beach.

Panama’s national parks cover 5 million acres alone.

Did we mention that you can do kayaking and rafting thru 20 sets of rapids in one afternoon?

After all that adventure, you can re-energize your weary body by indulging in the capital city’s vibrant nightlife, knowing full well that you are in one of the ten least expensive cities in the world and one of the safest countries in Latin America for tourists.

Panamanians are considered among the friendliest and most cheerful people you’ll ever meet in your travels, and many of them speak a little English if not fluently, so go ahead and enjoy their company.

Panama is not your ordinary Latin American country.

Aside from having a US-style capital city, Panama has a first-world infrastructure, including highways, medical care, telecommunications, high-speed internet, and business services.

Since Panama offers a low cost of living, foreigners who have moved to Panama find that they can do more for less. Having that extra money saved from low-cost living enables ex-pats to afford some of life’s luxuries like a maid or gardener or extra vacations.   You can alleviate stress when you can relax more!

    Great information! I was stationed in Panama with the Air Force from 1970 – 1975 and loved it. Plan to go back as soon as we can sell our home in Florida, which should be sometime next year. We were looking at costa rica and Ecuador, but after much research and visiting the other places have decided that Panama is the best. Thank you for all your update information and we plan to visit first just tinder what changes have occurred since the seventies. God bless you.

      HI David

      There have been so many changes in the last 5-10 years, I can’t imagine the different world you will find in Panama today compared to the 70s. Some things never change… the Panamanian people are always smiling and so nice AND the weather is absolutely amazing.
