  1. Hi! My husband and I will be coming down to visit in March/April 2016 and will be staying in Boquete. We are interested in checking out Puerto Armuelles and looking at some property while we are there. What is the best way to contact you about showings? Thanks!

    Jackie (Michigan, USA)

  2. Max

    Hello Reyn.
    I talked to you on sunday about my visit in Puerto Armuellas, and the properties that I saw and was offered. I am interested in the one in Las Palmas.
    Thank you

  3. Joan

    Are there building restrictions? And what is the range of cost to build per sq foot?
    I am looking for enough land on the ocean to build a small hotel for yoga. is there anything like this for sale? Around 10-12 rooms.
    Would like to have it close to activities and dining.

    • Hi Joan,

      There is a required setback from the high tide line, but other that, there are very few restrictions on building.
      Yes, you can find property for a small yoga hotel close to dining, etc.

      If you want to shoot me an email, I’d be happy to discuss it and hook you up with others who can help you as well.
      Go here to send me an email.

  4. Kevin

    I saw a question above about professions. My daughter is 14, we are researching as a family moving to include us our children and my father. My question is her dream job is a lawyer so is there any way she would be able to fulfill this there, if so how long would she have to live there first, by what age would she have to move, etc. I know it’s several years but don’t want to hurt her dreams. Thank you

    • Hi Kevin,

      In order for her to practice law in Panama she must become a citizen of Panama,
      or marry a Panamanian. Both are possible. A person can be both a citizen of
      Panama and of the USA. I believe she has enough years still to get citizenship.
      However, you should really speak to an immigration lawyer in Panama.

      Of course, she can always be a lawyer in the States.
      She may not choose to go to college or live in Panama as an adult.

      My daughter is also 14. She loves Panama. She always intends have it as part of her life,
      but she wants to go to college in Europe, and who knows where she will end up
      earning her living.

      Best wishes,

  5. Joseph Zappone

    Hi I am a disable veteran living on a $3000 a month disability. I currently live in NYC in our family house that me and my siblings are about to see. I need to find a warm climate where I can live comfortably with my small Income. I would like to visit panama for a month to see how I would like it..please call or e Mail me @

    • Hi Joseph,

      Well if you have looked at our and other’s cost of living info,
      then you know you can afford to live in Panama on your disability.
      Of course, it is also possible to design a lifestyle that costs more
      than that.

      Good idea to visit for a month or so before deciding to move to Panama.
      If you have a specific question, please email or call me with it.


  6. wes

    I’m a B1.1 aircraft engineer, how hard would it be for me to get a job in panama, I visit every year and I’m thinking of making the permanent move there,

    • Betsy

      Hi Wes,

      If you get a company in Panama to hire you, it might be easy.
      They would take care of the work permit.

      I am not sure if your profession is one of those “reserved for Pananians” or not.

      I suggest you ask a Panama lawyer that question.
      Or perhaps an airline with workers in Panama.

      I hope it works for you.

  7. Al & Candy Reed

    Candy & I are making a serious trip to Western Panama in April ’15 to see if this is the place for us. We are lifelong horse people and I am a veterinarian. My question is how hard would it be to practice down there if I still wanted to dabble with horses every so often? ( meaning legalities of licensure to practice etc.)

    • Betsy

      Hi Al & Candy,
      It is very hard to impossible for an ex-pat to get an official sanction to practice as a professional vet (doctor, lawyer, chiropractor…) in Panama.

      Your best bet would be to get a friendly nations visa.
      That makes it much easier to get a work permit.
      It could be that regulations for professionals will loosen up
      in the future, or there may be a niche you could fill that does
      not require a license.

      I hope you enjoy your explorations.
      If you make it to Puerto, please give us a shout.

    • Veronica Reinhardt

      Welcome to Puerto, my name is Veronica Reinhardt and we have a farm on the outskirts of Puerto Armuelles. It’s a great area for horses; the pastures are rich and the breezes are wonderful. We are looking forward to meeting you; please let us know when you are coming!! My email address is and you can call us on our magic Jack number: 407-610-1314. (You will find a magic Jack number a necessity here!!)

  8. Patricia Higgins

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    My husband and I live in the U.K. and are thinking of migrating to Panama.
    Can you tell me what price and condition/amenities the homes for sale are likely to have?
    If we do decide to move there, what visa’s etc are needed? We would be cash buyers and our top price would be £45,000 to £50,000. Maybe a little more if we really liked the property.



    • Betsy

      Hi Pat,

      It sounds like you are at the beginnning stages of your research.
      What I tell everyone is to visit Panama and see if you like it.
      Many of your questions will be answered simply by visiting.

      If you poke around my site and ask google, many of your other questions
      will be answered.

      Best wishes.

  9. Margaret Farr

    Thank you for the updates. I am glad you are back. I have missed your newsletter. I thought I was “kicked off the mailing list for some reason”. I hope everything is OK in Seattle for you.
    Margaret Farr

    • Betsy & Reyn

      Hi Margaret,

      Thanks alot. It is good to hear it was missed.
      Everything seems to be going well in Seattle now.
      We are all happy to be back in Puerto Armuelles.

      Best wishes.

  10. George Knaskov

    I am retired, living in Dominican Republic, working on my pensionado visa. Every time I get to real estate property is always for sale. I live on a comfortable pension and at my age (73) i have no intention to purchase. I want to rent a small comfortable apartment, and can not find any. Can you help with contacts

    • Betsy & Reyn

      Hi George, The best way to find rentals is to ask on the relevant forums and look on sites such as craigslist and encuentra24.
      It is an excellent idea to rent.

      • Hi Betsy,
        We have rentals available and also are just about to release our “Retirement Village” concept. Give me a shout and I am happy to pass on the info. We were in town yesterday to celebrate Ruth’s B-day but ran out of time to get together.

  11. Marc Stevenson

    Hi Betsy,
    Just a note, and please don’t bother publishing this.
    When you have a “Printable Version” please think about the ink saturation. Making something look pretty online is admirable and cool. But having a colored background for printing just soaks the page with ink for no reason.
    This is my first time on your site. And this isn’t a huge concern. An extra 50 cents or a dollar in ink isn’t going to break the bank. But often I am faced with the option of printing or no printing, according to the color of the “background” used. There are so many businesses in Panama that use massive color schemes on their billings and printouts, that it’s almost like they don’t WANT us to print them out! LOL.
    Many companies have gone the route of “Printable Versions” that don’t use 4 color photos or colored backgrounds.
    Anyway, the value of your research far outweighs the cost of printing. Keep up the good work.

    • Betsy & Reyn

      Thanks Marc.

      I never think about people trying to print items from my site.
      One option is to copy it into text edit (make) or notepad (PC) and then convert it into plain text.
      Then you can print it without any fancy fonts or colors.

      Hope that helps.

  12. Laura

    Do you sponsor or know of any tours in the area of the Azuero peninsula? We are looking to visit this summer. We would like to see what is for sale and/or rent to get a flavor of the area.

    • Betsy & Reyn

      Hi Laura,
      I don’t know anything about tours of the Azuero. It is a great place though. The beaches around Tonesi are some of the most beautiful that I have ever seen.

  13. Ben den Holder

    Do you have property higher up in the mountains (which altitude approx.?) and how far from town and beach?

    • Betsy & Reyn

      Hi again Ben,

      There is property in the hills around Puerto Armuelles for sale.

      The distance from town and beach vary, but nothing very far. You could be anything from 10 minutes to 30 minutes from town and beach. I don’t know the altitude off the top of my head. It is cooler up there, particularly at night.

      The hill property we own personally is being sold as I write. However, if you are interested in hill property we can hook you up.

    • Betsy & Reyn

      Hi Angela,
      I do know of some rental properties. But they can be hard to find. In fact I am going out to visit a place today. I saw that you posted your request on the Puerto Armuelles yahoo group. That is a good idea. I always recommend that people looking for rental do one or all of the following:

      1) visit our rental page at
      2) Ask on the various panama-related Yahoo groups
      3) Look on Craigslist
      4) Stay in a hotel or a short-term rental and start looking for a rental.

      Many people with rental are reluctant to list them on the internet. So the only way to find them is to ask more directly.
      Most people with rentals here don’t visit forums. The only way to find out about them is to ask around.

      If you haven’t found a rental yet, let me know. I can send you more info.

  14. I like the helpful information you provide in your articles.
    I’ll bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently. I’m quite certain
    I will learn lots of new stuff right here!

    Best of luck for the next!
