Low cost of living...stunning natural beauty...warm, friendly people...and the best retiree discount in the world. There are so many good reasons to live in Panama that it's easy to see why Americans are choosing this country as their retirement haven.
It's a country that has something for everyone. Want to live by a white-sand beach, gazing out at miles of clear-blue Pacific Ocean or Caribbean Sea? You can here. More of a quiet mountain town kind of guy or gal? You're in luck. Panama has a range of little mountain towns to choose from.
It's a country with culture, too. In Panama City—one of the most developed and First World cities in all of Latin America—you can visit the opera, see the ballet, join a class to suit any interest, and much more.
Or if you'd prefer to live in a remote, rural community, spending your days tending to your organic garden or small farm, you can do that here, too.
But the real beauty of living in Panama is that you're not faced with an either/or situation. Say you decide you'd like to live in a beach town but you want to have a night out in the city. You can have that here—easily.
Panama is so small and yet diverse that every kind of scenery and lifestyle is available to you when you want it. Take the beach town of Coronado, for example. If you lived there, you could spend your days walking the unusual black-and-white sanded beach, splashing your toes in the Pacific waters.
And when you wanted a change, you could hop in your car and be enjoying the natural hot springs in the mountain town of El Valle de Anton, within the hour. Or you could drive or take a bus for an hour and 15 minutes to enjoy a theater show in Panama City.Read on…
