REPLAY: Ellen Talks About Her Life in Panama

This post was published before major changes were made to the Friendly Nations Visa (FNV) program. Find out if you are eligible to move to Panama.

Unfortunately, this Covid-19 virus has put a stop to international travel and coming on a Panama Relocation Tour so you can see how you can live better for less.

But the Panama Relocation Tours team will be providing weekly conference calls or videos with expats who live in Panama who will give you glimpse of what their life is like living in Panama.   These weekly conference calls or videos will give you additional information to add to your research about relocating to Panama.

ellen and family

Listen to the replay of a call with Ellen who came on a Panama Relocation Tour with her family in 2014.  They moved from Alabama to Playa Blanco, near Coronado, then relocated to the Boquete area.  She and her husband and son have lived in Panama almost 5 years.  They have the Friendly Nations Visa and work permits so they can work in Panama.  Her son is now 16 and thriving in Panama.

In this call she will talk about:

♦ Why they moved to Panama
♦ Why they moved away from a beautiful beach town
♦ Moving to Panama with 3 pets
♦ Cost of living in Panama
♦ Health care in Panama
♦ How Panama has improved her health substantially
♦ What she misses about the USA
♦ What she does not like about living in Panama
♦ And much more

Check out her views!

NOTE:  We do not give out contact information for the people we interview for these “My Life in Panama” conference or video calls because they don’t want to be bombarded with emails.  If you have a question about living in Panama, please email us.

NEXT WEEK:  We will be doing a video interview with a couple who lives in CHAME, which is a beach town few miles east of Coronado.  Stay tuned for more details.

    Enjoyed the information very much. I live in Las Vegas and have been talking to family, friends, and co-workers about taking your tour. I think a video vlog with Panama ex-pats is a great idea! Haven’t booked yet but planning on Feb., 2021. See you then (if not before).
