Your Perfect Retirement Destination: Panama

Would you like to retire much earlier than you were expecting to? If so, then there is a good chance that a retirement in Panama is the way to go. International Living has repeatedly proclaimed Panama as a great retirement haven. In fact, Panama came top in our annual Global Retirement Index for six years in a row.
The amazing benefits of retiring to Panama are no longer secret. IL is not the only voice encouraging people to retire to Panama; respected publications including Harper’s Bazaar, The Boston Globe, USA Today, and The New York Times have all published articles about Panama’s many attributes.

Cost of living

Panama offers a very comfortable retirement solution, in part because the nation is much more developed than most visitors expect. Many are shocked by the modernity of Panama and the clusters of skyscrapers that define Panama City’s skyline. All of the amenities one could wish for are readily available.
By retiring in Panama, you will enjoy the benefits of a developing economy where you can still take a taxi across town for a buck or two, get your haircut for a couple of dollars, or enjoy dinner for two with a bottle of wine at one of the finest restaurants in Panama City for a mere $30. There are also lots of activities for you to enjoy, from jazz clubs to art openings to English-language theater performances. You may be wondering what you will do when you retire...but in Panama, you will never find yourself bored.

Health care

Many upcoming retirees fear moving to a location with a substandard health care system, but such worries are unfounded here. Health care in Panama is both inexpensive and modern. Good quality health care and modern hospitals are available throughout the country. Many Panamanian doctors are U.S.-trained, and hospital standards are on par with what you would find in North America or Europe. Particularly appealing to those looking to retire in Panama is an important additional advantage: both private health insurance and prescription drugs are readily available—and they are much less expensive than their U.S. equivalents.

Panama’s pensionado program for retirees

Perhaps the most appealing benefit of retiring to Panama is its incredible pensionado (retiree) program. Panama’s pensionado program, in its current form, was created with the passing of Laws No. 6 and No. 9 in June of 1987, which provides those who retire to Panama with a program of special benefits that is unmatched.

Benefits of this program include:

50% off entertainment—such as movies, theater, concerts, and sporting events
25% off airline tickets
25% off at restaurants
10% off prescription medicines
20% off medical consultations
15% off dental and eye exams
It is quite obvious that the Panamanian government is vigorously trying to attract retirees to Panama. You cannot ask for a better program for retirees.

Where to look in Panama

Panama City

If you’re looking for inexpensive cosmopolitan living—but with the conveniences you’d expect in New York, Chicago, Miami, or any other major First-World city—you need to take a serious look at Panama City.

Panama City boasts a skyline of skyscrapers...modern office buildings and hotels of shining glass and steel with world-class views of the Bay of Panama. The city is a major international commerce and banking hub, home of more than 80 of the world’s largest banks and other giant multi-national corporations such as Federal Express, DHL, and Price Costco. There’s a reason it’s called the “hub of the Americas,” and you can thank the Panama Canal for that. For more than 100 years, it’s been the conduit between east and west, north and south. The influence of many different nationalities is vast. Walk the streets of Panama City and you will hear dozens of different languages…including English.

You can dine in five-star restaurants. Attend plays, symphonies, and the ballet and shop at the many unique boutiques. And in Panama City, you can enjoy these First-World luxuries at about half the price you’d pay in any U.S. city.

You don’t have to be in Panama City long to see that it wasn’t built overnight. The city is an enticing blend of colonial and modern architecture. A place where old meets new, and where it is an everyday experience to see a Kuna Indian dressed in a traditional colorful, beaded costume walking side by side with a businessman (or woman) carrying a briefcase and conducting business via their cell phone.

Boquete

Balmy is nice, but the forested mountains of Boquete offer another kind of paradise in Panama. This little valley, located in the mountainous Chiriquí region at an elevation of 3,500 feet, is one of the world’s most wondrous refuges. Due to its elevation, daytime temperatures rarely dip below 70° F in Boquete and rarely climb above 80° F.

Nights are cool and comfortable. Boquete is ideal, therefore, as either a year-round, full time retreat, or as a place to escape to for several weeks of the year. In our minds, it’s hard to imagine a better haven than this little village. Boquete’s lush green hills, flowing rivers, and spectacular waterfalls make it one of the most unspoiled retirement retreats in the world today.

Retirees have flocked to this retirement gem. With banks, B&Bs, hotels, and museums, Boquete is fast becoming an eco-tourist’s mecca. From our vantage point in Panama, we’ve noticed that Boquete has more to offer every time we look. In the last few years a number of new developments have sprung up, including a riverside restaurant, a hotel, a folklore shop with arts and crafts from Central America, a visitors’ center, and a sports center with basketball courts and baseball fields.

Living in the Panama highlands…David

If you’re looking for a place to retire, in our view it simply doesn’t get any better than the highland areas of Panama, especially when it comes to value combined with convenience. A 30-minute drive from Boquete, on a perfectly paved and modern road, brings you to the city of David (pronounced “Da-VEED”).

Here you’ll find everything, including two U.S.-style grocery stores, a Price Smart, two private hospitals, and six new-car dealerships. A small airport serves David with daily flights to Panama City and Bocas Del Toro on the Caribbean coast. A 30-minute drive on a four-lane road will take you to the Costa Rican border. The road from David to Panama City is now a mostly four-lane highway that can be driven in about five hours. This coastal drive is dotted with beautiful beaches along the way.

One kilometer from the David airport is a marina accepting large yachts to small boats. The fishing and diving just off the coast are superb. A two-hour drive on a fine road takes you to the Caribbean Coast and Bocas Del Toro (literally translated: the mouth of the bull).
