What’s It Like to Live in Las Tablas Panama?

las tablas panama

Listen to the replay of the conference call with Gwen, a single lady who lives in Las Tablas Panama.   Las Tablas is a town of about 15,000 people in the Azuero Peninsula.  It has all the amenities you would ever need and it’s only about 10 minutes to a nice beach.  Gwen retired early to get away from the cold weather in Canada. During this call, you’ll learn:

* Why she moved to Panama
* Her experiences with the health care in Panama
* What her living expenses are like
* What’s the weather like in Las Tablas
* Why she lives closer to town versus the nearby beach
* What she misses about living in Canada
* What frustrates her about living in Panama
* and much more.

Las Tablas is one one of the safest and most affordable towns in Panama.  During a Panama Relocation Tour, we’ve visited nice one bedroom furnished apartments for as little as $350 with all utilities included in Las Tablas.  And we’ve seen really nice, North American style, two bedroom two bath fully furnished house will rent for $600 a month.  Las Tablas is the cultural center for Panama with many national festivals there every year.

Note, at the beginning of the call I just did some Q & A time while Gwen was resolving some technical difficulties to get on the call.

    I think I misunderstood one of the replies. Visa charge is a one time payment, correct? I ask because I heard you say to a caller to add two hundred dollar more a month, in answer to a disabled family member moving down with them.

    What airport would you fly into to reach las Tablas?

    • Jackie Lange says

      You would fly into Tocumen International Airport (PTY) in Panama City. There’s an airport in Chitre but it’s not open. There’s an airport in Pedasi but there are only flights there 1 time a week. So, the best way to get to Las Tablas is to take the bus from Albrook bus depot
