An Expat Talks about Moving to Nueva Gorgona , Panama

May 28, 2019


Panama

An expat talks about moving to Nueva Gorgona and advises newcomers to rent before buying so that you can move if you don't end up liking the neighborhood. We couldn't agree more with this advice!

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Nueva Gorgona

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

Wish we would have brought an Amazon Firestick for TV, Small kitchen items and any electronics we might have wanted. Things we didn't need to bring, lots of shoes, a dress suit, the one I DID bring won't fit now, and dishes.

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. Rent for several months in several areas before you buy.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

We currently live in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo on the 17th floor at the beach

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

The first condo we found in Nueva Gorgona was through VRBO. We didn't know a lot about the area here, but we rented so if we decided it wasn't for us, we could always move to another area. After that, it's been by word of mouth that we have found places to live.
