Lifestyle in Panama City

  Lifestyle In Panama City  

Panama City caters for a variety of lifestyles. While its ultra-modern skyline lends to its reputation as a booming commerce city, it also offers low-key, laid-back living. Here the urban lives in harmony with the tropical. Its proximity with the States means you can visit home conveniently and it’s in the Eastern Time Zone.

 

There is a huge selection of restaurants to choose from. You could eat out here several times a week—grab lunch for $5 and sip a beer for $1.

 

And think of the little luxuries you’ve denied yourself over the years. Maybe you’re hoping in Panama, you’ll be able to play golf more often…afford weekly massages…even see the dentist or dermatologist more regularly than you did back home. Here, you can stop hoping, and make all those luxury lifestyle dreams come true.

There's a big difference between how a tourist sees Panama City and how a potential resident views it. If you come for a visit, you’re likely to note the sparkly, spiky skyline. Even back in the 1990s it was impressive—no other city in the region could compete. And these days there are more than plain old skyscrapers here. There are some true architectural specimens, like the Trump building (sail shaped, like that iconic hotel in Dubai).

Cero estrés. Zero stress. It’s a constant refrain in Panama City, where I now live. It refers to the idea that hiccups are meant to be taken in stride. That if both sides remain calm, all will be well. That there’s no need to "stress out." Take the other day for example. I’d ordered a few hundred photocopies, but when I went to pick them up I realized I‘d left my wallet at home. The supervisor said "cero estrés," and let me take the copies anyway. I went back to pay the next day.

On a dusty corner in Panama City’s Casco Viejo sector, there is a bar/restaurant. It doesn’t look like much, but the name on the sign makes passersby stop and puzzle: Mojitos sin Mojitos. In English it means, "Mojitos without Mojitos." Weekend nights, the place is full to overflowing. There are hipsters from the local art scene...young bankers from the financial district...backpackers from France.

There's a little mountain town in the interior of Panama where you can still buy a home or a large parcel of land next to a gurgling river. It's likely this land will have waterfalls and hiking trails on it...you'll see wild parrots and toucans and flowers of every tropical variety and color. The tall grass waving in the breeze will be so green, it would make even the Irish envious...
