Retiring early was not the plan! When Nancy and Sam Clawson came on a Panama Relocation Tour in September, they were investigating various places to retire to in a few years. But destiny had other plans for them!
During the tour, we show 1-2 rentals in each area we visit so you can get an idea of what a Panama house looks like. When we were in Volcan, we saw this cute $750 a month furnished two bedroom two bath rental..it even has a hot tub! I was walking next to Nancy as we walked up to the house and she said , “I think we just found our next home“. It gets even better….
The owners of the house had an older dog and expressed their concern about shipping the dog back to the USA. Surprisingly, the dog looked exactly like a dog Nancy and Sam had who had passed away a few months before. The Volcan dog was instantly attracted to Nancy. So, Nancy said they would keep the dog! They signed a lease that day and move to Panama a month later!
The lower cost of living in Panama allowed Sam and Nancy to retire early. Watch this video to learn what they like about living in Panama, what their challenges have been, what their cost of living is, and what they miss about the US.
