You Are In The Right

Deciding to move to Panama is a big step.  You need to consider a wide array of issues.

If you haven’t yet, we recommend that you take our Should I Move To Panama?” Quiz.

  • It won’t give you a definitive answer.  
  • It doesn’t ask every question you should ask yourself.

But the quiz will give you a glimpse at a range of questions. Questions you must answer BEFORE you move down to Panama.

Regardless how you score on the quiz, do NOT move or buy property unless you have visited Panama.

Not only visited, by made an extended stayed.  Ideally, you will spend time in Panama  both in the rainy and in the dry season.

    Iam already retired at Puerto Rico and will like to live at Panamafor a certain time because it is very similar to Puerto Rico and has a lot of nature and beaches available for retired persons.

      Hi Rafael,
      I like that you sent me a comment in both English and Spanish. I didn’t publish your comment in Spanish because it included your phone number.

      If you are looking to rent a place, my advice is to ask on relevant Panama forums. A good place to find those is on Yahoo Groups.
      I have a few rental options on my site. Go to this page.
      You should also look on-line:
      – Panama Craigslist and

      The best option is to come and look for a place in person. Most rentals are never listed on the internet.
      That is why I recommend asking on the forums. You can get some leads there, however, best is too look around once you are on the ground.

      Thanks for commenting.
