Panama Press Quotes

What the travel experts are saying about Panama:

“In Panama, a slim-waisted tropical nation about the same size as South Carolina, you can find sweeping rain forests teeming with exotic animals and birds, cloud forests cloaking the summits of rugged mountains, and vibrant indigenous cultures that predate the conquistadores. A cornucopia of wildlife wonders side by side with fortresses and sleepy colonial villages, Panama is a country just awakening to its vast potential.”

- New York Times

- The Washington Post

“Those who missed the boat in Miami and found Costa Rica inadequate and too costly, set their sights on this sliver of a country… Many expat retired people have also been enticed into investing in property here because of Panama’s easy access to both oceans, abundance of flora and fauna, by a favourable climate – which conveniently lies south of the hurricane belt – and most importantly the infrastructure… In short, Panama has a slice of everything and something for everyone.”
