What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?
Rent first before you buy. Your paradise today may not be what you will think in 6 months. Brings essentials and sell everything else, you can get it cheaper here. (Continue)

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
At first I shunned the gringo/expat organized weekly meeting, the Tuesday Morning Informational and Networking Meeting. All the people were of retired age, I'm not. Then I started going, I found I had things to say and others had things to teach. they soon published a small book of the meetings minutes with recaps of many speakers. I learned many valuable things and shared opinions and even changed some opinions. We bonded, we drank local coffee, we bitched and moaned and rejoyced together. seek out such groups and see what you can learn or contribute to them. (Continue)

I do believe you've got it, friend! and you're bound to make many more. I hope to see you in Boquete when we move there in April 2015. You definitely summed it up well: Be prepared to change your life. Leave behind all your pre conceived notions of how it should be, what you need, want, and must have to get by. EVERYTHING is different, embrace it, learn from it, apply what you can to your life but don't come here with demands, strict ideals, uptight lifestyle, and the idea that you are going to save a third world culture from itself. I find the opposite is what happens, it saves you from yourself and what ever madness you left behind.

This is a very good post. When you go to live in another country you certainly must be open to their culture and be respectful as we are visitors to their country. We have expectations of the way things are "supposed" to be but we need to learn that there is another way to doing things and we can do without most things we are accustomed to. That is why we left the rat race to begin with, I assume, to live a different more real lifestyle. Live life and enjoy!

no they are not. there is a panama city, Florida. but if you are googling you must put panama city, Panama. P{eople are extremely friendly, accepting which to me goes far beyond tolerant and appreciate that us paler folks just give it a gold ol try.
DaphneyTennard replied recently with:
Good suggestion and a advise. I would like to know if Panama City, Panama and Panama City is the same? Sounds like the place to be for me. Coming from Houston Texas, I know this will be a big adjustment for me. What neighborhoods do you consider to be bad in Panama City?
