I missed you guys. Really, I did. I’ve been thinking a lot about Panama For Real and wishing I had more time to dive back into the pool of milky white virtual paper and Verdana font. The truth is, I’ve been incredibly busy putting food on the table. I’ve said before that Panama isn’t an […]

I’ve been asked a few times recently about satisfaction among expats in Panama and what seems to drive people to pack up and leave. That’s a tough question to answer because each person has his or her own story. It might be the constant humidity, the slower pace of life, traffic (if they live in Panama […]

Hey friends, This is not meant to slam Panamanians, at all. I could list way more than 15 things that are odd about the U.S. and its people. Remember, my wife is Panamanian, so I have her to answer to if I get out of line. That said, I’ve noticed a lot of strange things […]

Good morning, A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the real cost of living in Panama and the real supermarket prices. After I published these articles, I got several emails and noticed several Facebook posts talking about how, after reading my articles, people were beginning to think that Panama isn’t any less expensive than […]

Hi everybody, Good Monday morning. I’ve gathered enough questions to do a Monday Q and A today. I hope everyone had the chance to see the Isla Taboga written report and video at Panama For Real. If not, just click here on the words “report” or “video” to be taken to them. I had a […]

Hey friends, I thought I’d write about cost of living today. I go over cost of living in each destination we cover at Panama For Real (www.PanamaForReal.com), but it’s very location specific in those reports. So, here in this blog post, I want to cover cost of living in general. What does that mean? Things […]

Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s 2014 already, the year President Martinelli plans to finish up everything? Seriously, living in Panama, it seems the answer to every challenge and every new project is, “It will be completed in 2014.” So hopefully this year means an end to our traffic woes (with the new Metro […]

Hey everybody, Sorry it’s been awhile since my last post. I took a little bit of time off to spend with the family over the holidays. I’m back now and excited to start the New Year off right. This will be a short, and very quickly written post, as I’m about to head out with […]
