Panama: Your Safe Haven

It’s hard to watch all the violence going on in the United States. The whole country is so divided.

It makes me appreciate even more that I live in Panama – a Safe Haven!

Mountain Bike Riding in PanamaIf you’ve had enough and just want to get away from it all for awhile, you should know that you can come to Panama as a tourists for 180 days (6 months). You don’t need to get a Visa. All you need is a passport.

It is easy to find a rental now. Many landlords are very negotiable. Most rentals come completely furnished with furniture, sheets, towels, dishes, cookware, coffee pot, tv, utilities… so you only need to bring a suitcase with some clothes. Of course, you can buy clothes in Panama too!

You can also bring your fur baby but that will take some extra steps. Read this article about bringing your pets in to Panama.

Panama’s Tocumen International Airport (PTY) is opening June 22 so there should be some flights in to Panama (PTY) shortly after that.

You can get access to cash at ATM machines in Panama using your debit card. Just make sure your bank knows that you’ll be traveling in Panama. Some stores take credit cards. So you can get by in Panama without opening up a Panama bank account.

You can even get travelers insurance to cover you for the 6 months you are in Panama.

Panama could be your Safe Haven until things settle down in the United States. You may recall the article I wrote last August about What’s Your Plan B: Safety Insurance! It’s not too late!

He charges much more than the immigration attorney that you recommend. The Online Guide saved me $1500 and your attorney is much better at communicating with me! The Online Guide has a wealth of information that has given me the confidence to move to Panama.
