What do I need to know before moving to Panama City?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Panama City, they said:

"The best thing I can say about my apt. is that I know where my leaks are. 7 or 8 months of rainy season - sunny mornings, you get out, do your errands early, then afternoon showers. It took me two years to know that Windex kills ants. Silicone seal around EVERYthing. Neighborhood - we got lucky. We chose the apt., and were clueless about the neighborhood, except the info the broker was pushing," said one expat in Panama City.
