Most foreigners who come to Panama City are completely surprised by what they find. It’s not the Third World. It’s not dangerous. And it’s certainly not inefficient.
The infrastructure, diversity, and sophistication of the country, especially in Panama City-with a metropolitan population of over 1 million -tell a different story than the media. The city easily surpasses its Central American neighbors and should be considered right up there with its Latin counterparts, such as Buenos Aires or Mexico City.
In fact, Panama City is our choice the globe over if you’re looking for inexpensive cosmopolitan living. You’ll find world-class restaurants, five-star hotels, international banks, hundreds of multinational businesses, a Manhattan-type skyline, and every imaginable luxury…all at about half the price you’d pay in Miami.
