REPLAY: After 4 Years in Panama, What Has Randy Learned?

Watch the replay of the interview with Randy. He talks about the lessons he has learned after living in Panama for four years.

Just a few weeks after coming on a Panama Relocation Tour in 2019, Randy moved to Boquete. But as more expats moved to the area and prices kept going up and up, Randy felt he was priced out of the Boquete market to be able to live on his Social Security. So he moved to an area with 50% lower prices! Find out where when you watch the replay.

There were a lot of good questions about:

*Rental prices
*Randy’s cost of living​
*What there is to do
*Restaurant prices
*Electricity and water​​​​ reliability
*and more​

The biggest lesson that Randy has learned is that the more expats there are in an area, the higher the prices are for rentals and restaurants. This is an important consideration when moving to Panama. Watch the video to learn what else Randy has learned after four years of living in Panama.

Randy also shares advice for anyone considering a move to Panama.

Exceeded My Expectations
Jan 2024 • Solo

I was a member of Tour Group 233 from January 19, 2024 to January 26, 2024.
Going on this tour has been one of the best experiences of my life. John Veillon and Jerry were our tour guides. The way they conducted the initial orientation assured me
I was going to receive exactly what I was expecting: The information that I would need to decide for myself if Panama is a place that I would like to move to.

This tour definitely will provide you with the good, the bad and the ugly. John and Jerry earned my trust with they way they presented the information. This is not a sales presentation or sales tour. It is not a vacation (although you will have some fun along the way). It is just what they say it is: A rolling seminar to show you different areas of the country and expose you to all of the aspects of the country so that you can make up your own mind.

By the end of the tour, I really felt like John and Jerry were friends. I also felt like all of the members of the tour group had bonded and will keep in touch for life, whether we move to Panama or not.

    Is it possible to find peace and serenity in Panama? I’m looking for a quiet life. No barking dogs. Howling monkeys, parrots, and other annoying creatures. Song birds are cool and of course affordable lifestyle and a great partner would be a bonus. I’m in my 70s and not in the mood for drama. It sounds like Randy is pretty happy except now he has 4 more mouths to feed. One would be sufficient.
