Retire In Panama City
 

 
Panama City is a great place to retire. Here, you’ll enjoy a low cost of living, welcoming people, an already thriving expat community, affordable, top-notch health care (many doctors are U.S.-trained and speak English) and reasonable property prices.
 
An added bonus is Panama’s famed pensionado program—when you retire in Panama City with this visa, you’re entitled to discounts in restaurants (25%); movie theaters (50%); closing costs for home loans (50%); 15% off hospital bills, and many more benefits. And if you do need hospital care, Panama City has top-notch hospitals where you’ll pay a fraction of what it would cost you back home.
