Why do people move to Panama City?
When we asked people why foreigners move to Panama City, they responded...
"If you are thinking about coming to Panama, I suggest you consider staying in Albrook (in the former Canal Zone) which is close to Panama City but provides a refreshingly different environment away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The entire community was built by the Americans so you have reliable American infrastructure (underground utilities, sewer system, copper plumbing in the houses, reliable electricity, lightning protection, the best drinking water in all of Panama, and clean air (close to the ocean and no incinerators). Albrook touches up against the jungle in many parts. The Americans prohibited killing the animals so there is lots of wildlife here. I run an Airbnb here and also rent out rooms directly. Many of my guests use my home as a base for further explorations throughout Panama as they decide where they want to settle down. Some, like me, have decided to stay in Albrook. Albrook is a quiet, safe neighborhood, away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the City. You will see people walking and jogging every morning and evening. We are within walking distance of ~15 places to eat ranging from food trucks, to bars, to restaurants. Here are my Airbnb links: A Special Tropical Home Upstairs Guest Bedroom w/Balcony, Downstairs Guest Bedroom and Master Bedroom," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Panama City, Panama.
"Panama City offers expats a unique blend of modern amenities and traditional Latin American culture. The city is known for its vibrant nightlife, diverse cuisine, and stunning beaches. The cost of living is relatively low compared to other cities in the region, making it an attractive option for expats looking to stretch their budget. Additionally, the city is home to a large expat community, providing a great opportunity to meet new people and make friends. With its tropical climate, Panama City is also a great place to enjoy outdoor activities year-round," commented one expat who made the move to Panama City, Panama.
