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

Answer this Question

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 another expat in Panama City, Panama.

"Before moving to Panama City, expats should research the cost of living and the availability of housing. It is also important to familiarize oneself with the local culture and customs, as well as the language. Additionally, expats should research the job market and the availability of healthcare services. It is also important to obtain the necessary visas and permits before moving to Panama City. Finally, expats should consider the safety of the city and the availability of transportation," wrote a member who made the move to Panama City, Panama.
