Paradise Found in Bocas del Toro

After coming on a Panama Relocation Tour, Lara and her husband Ceasar moved from New Zealand to Panama in March 2020, just a few weeks before Panama shut down because of Covid. They were stuck in an apartment in Panama City for 5 months, then moved to Coronado. They are both avid surfers and were looking for the perfect place to live in Panama where they could surf. As Panama opened up, they were able to explore many different areas. They finally found their paradise in Bocas del Toro, Panama, where they can surf every day. As Lara says, Bocas is just bursting with life and has stunning beauty!

In this video, Lara talks about what it’s like to live and surf in Bocas!

    Hi Jackie will the lawyer that I choose tell me what paperwork to bring so the visa process will go smoothly before we get there?

    • Jackie Lange says

      Yes, the immigration lawyer will send you a complete list of documents that you need to gather in your country.

      Some documents for getting a Visa can only be obtained in Panama.
