What’s It Like to Retire in Panama?

We know you’re wondering what it’s really like to retire in Panama so the Panama Relocation Tours team is shooting videos of some of the people who came on a Tour then relocated to Panama.  Our “Panama Expat Experience” video series will give you a glimpse in to expat life in Panama.

Debe and Rod came on a Panama Relocation Tour in April 2016 then moved to Boquete Panama in November 2017. They were able to retire early because of the lower cost of living in Panama.  They describe their experience living in Panama, renting then later buying a house. And they offer recommendations for anyone who is considering relocating to Panama. By the way, that had that beautiful dining room table made for $400 by a local craftsman.

In September, we will be doing Panama Expat Experience videos in various beach communities throughout Panama!

    Good tip from Debe and Rod. “I wished I had learned more Spanish before I came here.” Thank you Jackie for last week’s attendance of Gary talking about the importance of learning Spanish.
