REPLAY: 10 Reasons Panama Is the Best Place to Retire

On Saturday, December 11th, Panama Relocation Tours hosted a conference call to discuss the 10 reasons why Panama is consistently ranked as the #1 place to retire in the whole world.

There are typical reasons to retire in Panama like the more affordable lifestyle, how easy it is to qualify for a permanent Pensionado visa (you only need $1000 a month in lifetime income), plus the excellent and affordable healthcare.

But some of the main reasons to retire in Panama are the weather and spectacular scenery. Panama has 1500 miles of coastline, so beach lovers will indeed find their perfect spot. And Panama has a beautiful mountain range right down the middle of the country that offers cooler weather at the higher elevations. If you love city life, Panama City will be exactly what you’re looking for at a fraction of the costs of other metropolitan areas.

Panama has something for everyone in every budget! Listen to the replay below.

A cost-effective way to find your perfect spot in Panama is to take a Private Panama Relocation Tour of the area(s) you’re most interested in. Private Tours start at as little as $200 a day for a couple.

    Hi Jackie, I will be taking the relocation tour but will not be able to until 2023. How soon will you put out that tour schedule?

    I am contemplating moving to Boquete but I am becoming a little concerning about rising rents in that area. Do you believe a budget of $600.00 a month for a furnished 1 BR apartment including utilities is doable?
    You do a great job. I’ll be ordering the on line kit in about 30 days

      HI John. Thanks for your interest in Panama Relocation Tours. You won’t find any craftsman-style homes in Panama. Most homes are made out of cement blocks to prevent termites. The Coronado area would have the beach and golf you are looking for.
