Panama Rentals

Last Updated on April 28, 2022

We know you’re interested in seeing what rentals look like in Panama and what they cost. Once in a while, I will search the internet to find houses for rent in Panama City, Coronado, Chitre, Las Tablas, David, Boquete, Volcan, Bocas Del Toro, and other areas then post them on this page. The listings are arranged from Panama City heading west.

During a Panama Relocation Tour, we show 1-2 rentals each day and you get to see the neighborhoods, amenities, and towns nearby. We discuss the pros and cons of each area we visit during the Tour. Plus, you get to meet expats who live in each area we visit. When you go on a Private Tour, your guide can arrange for you to see rentals.

Are you thinking about moving to Panama? Check out our quick guide to living in Panama, learn more about our relocation tours, and consider purchasing our Complete Panama Relocation Guide.

The guide is available online and includes all of the same information we share during our tours about how to make a smooth move to Panama. It even includes all of our trusted contacts for immigration, real estate, insurance, and more.

It also has suggested self-guided tour itineraries as well as contact information for private tour guides in each of the cities we recommend. With this information, you could either explore Panama on your own or hire a local to show you around.

Additional Places to Find Panama Rentals

  1. Craigslist Panama
  2. Encuentra 24
  3. Facebook Marketplace – in the area you are interested in
  4. Private Tour Guides can always find great rentals during your Private Tour

BEWARE of these three problems:

(1) Some real estate agents do NET listings which means the owner wants $600 a month rent and the real estate agent will advertise the rental at $900 hoping to put $300 a month profit in their pocket. Some agents do the same thing with real estate sales. During a tour, we will introduce you to trustworthy real estate agents and property managers who do not do net listings.

(2) Some forums are frequented by scam artists who will try to get you to send them a deposit via PayPal to hold a property for you – a property that does not exist. During a tour, we will tell you which two forums to avoid and introduce you to trustworthy property managers who will help you find a rental at a good price.

(3) A lot of foreigners (non-Panamanians) are trying to get into selling and renting real estate to make some extra money. Many of them do NOT have a work permit so they cannot legally work in Panama. If they are renting or selling the house they actually own, they do not need a work permit. If an ex-pat is offering to rent or sell a house to you that they do not own, ask to see their work permit. You have absolutely no recourse if there is a problem with someone who rents or sells a property that does not have a work permit. Buyer/Renter beware!
