What do I need to know about living in Pedasi?

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

"Pedasi is a small town located on the Azuero Peninsula, known for its friendly locals, beautiful beaches, and relaxed lifestyle. Before retiring in Pedasi, expats should know that the cost of living is relatively low compared to many Western countries, but it's still higher than in other parts of Panama. The official language is Spanish, so it would be beneficial to learn the language or at least basic phrases. The healthcare system in Panama is generally good, but it's advisable to have a comprehensive health insurance plan. The climate in Pedasi is tropical, with a wet and dry season, and it can get quite hot. The town is small, so while it has basic amenities, it doesn't offer the same level of convenience or variety as a larger city. Expats should also be aware that while Pedasi is generally safe, petty crime can occur, so it's important to take standard precautions. The pace of life is slower, which can be a big adjustment for those used to a fast-paced lifestyle. The process of obtaining residency in Panama can be complex and time-consuming, so it's recommended to hire a local attorney to assist with the paperwork. Lastly, it's important to understand and respect the local customs and traditions to integrate well into the community," remarked one expat living in Pedasi, Panama.
