I'm a US expat who moved to Panama in July 2022. We sold our home and all of its contents and we came to Panama with 6 suitcases and the dog. We moved to Panama before we had ever visited, so it's been quite the adventure but we love it. If you want to follow our journey, you can check out my Tiktok account @kellesparta. There are TONS of videos (including Why Panama). Please watch those before asking questions. If there's one thing you'll learn about moving out of the country, it's that you get asked the same questions over and over and you get really tired of answering them. The videos cover those questions. Anything else, I'm happy to answer, but I'm going to tell you that the absolute best thing we did was buy the Panama Relocation Tours guidebook. It was invaluable and continues to be so even today.
