An Expat Talks about Living in Coronado, Panama


A retiree to Coronado, Panama enjoys the relaxed lifestyle and friendly locals. The biggest challenge to retiring there has been the difficulty having his service dog accepted in the same way it would be accepted everywhere in the United States. Most locals view dogs as guard dogs and there are no special accommodations for service dogs.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Panama is NOT a good place for people with a "Service Dog" or a "Guide Dog". In general, many people are scared of all dogs because most dogs in Panama are GUARD DOGS for their property.

Panama is behind the times in its thinking about "Service Dogs". In Canada (and the USA) all Service and Guide dogs are accepted everywhere.

People who have such a "partner" really need that dog in their life. He is their "lifeline".

They are highly trained and do not bother other people. Their main interest is the care of their owner! They DO NOT have "accidents" and they do not bother other people. 99% of the time they are very friendly with all people they meet.

In Canada & USA the Service Dogs are fully accepted and allowed to go everywhere their owner wants to go. That includes all stores, clinics, businesses and restaurants.

This is a fact of the 20th Century. Panama needs to catch up! These dogs are highly trained and get to need their owner as much as the owner needs them.
