A reluctant but not unwilling expat explores life on Isla Taboga, Panama

Web Site:

When my husband suggested that we buy property in Panama, I thought he was nuts. It was hot there, we didn't speak Spanish, it was far from our family and friends in Seattle and... well... I just didn't want to.

Obviously, we did it and once we made the decision I jumped in feet first. We bought two condos - one for us to live in and one for visitors and also to use as a rental to offset our expenses.

In the last seven years, we have traveled extensively throughout Panama and spent longer and longer stretches of time on Isla Taboga. It's been a rich experience and one that forced me to stretch my limits.

Here are some of my reflections and experiences and observations. Enjoy!
