Panama: Immigrating to Panama:

@Holly: I would strongly advise against moving to Panama at all !! Do your research online (there are lots of articles on the subject) After a year of living here, I finally grew a brain, and realized Panama is a dump !! I have several choices available to me : Colombia, Mexico, etc. I've decided to pack up and head to one of these (maybe even both of them)

If you see anything you fancy, drop me a line, and we'll talk prices Cheers

Panama: TOURIST VISA CHANGED?:

@nubrain: NO; I think your Colombian friend is referring to all Panamanians in general, regardless of class. And I agree with her

Panama: La Chorrera - anti foreigners?:

@KMRiches: first of, it's really bad that you are being discriminated against in this way. I can't imagine how awful it must be for you. One thing you actually hit right on the head is this: as a young, Caucasian woman, you are a target for BOTH panamanian males and females. The men see you as a potential trophy.........and the women hate you because of this. However, as a few people here have pointed out, there are a few facts missing from your story: (a) you still haven't told us ANYTHING about your husband. Who is he --- local or foreigner? (b) I assume you've discussed your predicament with him, right? Well, what is he doing about it??? I've only been here 18 months. I've heard literally dozens of stories from expats, complaining about one thing or another, but never once do they talk about how their spouses or partners are reacting to this (I'm referring to those expats whose partners are local panamanians) Why would you tolerate such nonsense for 4 years --- especially if your spouse seems oblivious to your daily nightmares?? Is he oblivious??

Panama: Depositing a Canadian cheque in your Panamanian bank account:

Panama: Corporation for sale:

Got a Panamanian Corporation for sale, if anyone's interested. Established in February last year (2016). Never been used. Only set it up to get my visa, cedula, etc, etc. No debts, fines, or any such crap All taxes fully paid. If interested, PM me. Cheers

Panama: Therapist / Psychotherapist, etc?:

Greetings. Does anyone know of a therapist/psychotherapist, or similar, in Panama City? Preferably someone who is either native English, or at least fluent in English? Thanks
