What should I pack when moving to Panama City?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Panama City to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"Brought: books, DVDs, no printers or fax machines. Wish I had left at home: a HOME. Not having one Stateside means mail forwarding only, not having a state to claim residence in for Medicare, voting, getting mail delivered, and perhaps a relative sift through the mail and scan me only important papers. Don't bring wood furniture - the tropics call for their own woods. NO metal anything - file cabinets, etc. And don't store in highrise depositos - they're greasey and dirty. Tape any boxes on all seams so the contents stay clean," remarked another expat in Panama City, Panama.

"When moving to Panama City, it is important to pack items that will help you adjust to the climate and culture. Pack lightweight, breathable clothing that is suitable for the tropical climate. Bring comfortable shoes for walking and exploring the city. Sunscreen and a hat are also essential for protecting yourself from the sun. Additionally, it is important to bring any necessary medications and toiletries. Don't forget to bring a few items that will help you feel at home, such as photos, books, and music. Finally, make sure to bring a valid passport and any other important documents," said a member in Panama City, Panama.
