When we asked expats and global nomads what they like and dislike about living in Panama, they replied...

"Expats and digital nomads in Panama enjoy the country's low cost of living, its tropical climate, and its friendly people. They also appreciate the country's excellent infrastructure, which makes it easy to get around and stay connected. On the downside, expats and digital nomads may find the language barrier challenging, as Spanish is the official language. Additionally, Panama's healthcare system is not as advanced as some other countries, so expats may need to seek medical care abroad," explained one expat living in Panama.

"I love he town I live in. It's small but in close proximity to neighboring towns with many dining and shopping options. We are very happy with where we live. There is a good doctor in our neighboring town that speaks English and has specialists come into his office for easy access to people in our area. For more specialized medical procedures, Panama City has many private hospitals with excellent reputations and specialists in every field. We are about an hour from Panama City so access is not very difficult. I do have minor concerns about what would happen if I had a major medical emergency (heart attack, stroke) but I don't worry about it. Our philosophy is to deal with things as they arise. Maybe not the best approach, but our approach," said another expat in Nueva Gorgona, Panama.
