We asked people about the cost of living in Panama, they wrote...

"Cost of living entirely depends on your personal habits. A single person could survive on their US Social Security check if they don't insist on luxury. For most Americans, if they want to continue the profligate lifestyle to which they are accustomed, the cost will be comparable," remarked another expat who made the move to Panama.

"Cost of living depend on what you buy at the grocery store. If you buy locally, it is cheaper but very limited products so you need to buy grocery products from the USA that are much more expensive here than in the USA. Again, it depends on how you feed yourself, we eat healthy with product variety that are missing locally. Pricesmart (same as Costco) is a good choice to buy at lower price. Buying other type of products (TV, computer, furniture, etc) is expensive in Panama as it's always full price (full MSRP) and rarely on sale. If you can find your product at Pricesmart, it will be your best place to buy as they have the lowest price. ," explained one expat living in Panama City, Panama.
