Find Your Own Paradise in Panama

“Welcome to Paradise.” That’s the sign outside the door to Mitzi and Bill Martain’s home near the little village of Santa Fe, in the mountains of Panama’s Veraguas province.

“We’re about halfway…just a few hour’s drive from either Panama City or Costa Rica, and the same from either the Pacific Ocean or the Caribbean,” Mitzi says.

“We live on 10 acres that border the Santa Maria River, the most absolutely beautiful year-round river you’ve ever seen. The Continental Divide is just a few miles away and there are lush mountains with water-falls, and wild toucans and other birds…”

Of course, this paradise is not for everyone, Mitzi says. If you’re a city person, you’ll surely be happier in cosmopolitan Panama City, just four hours away.

There, you’ll find anything and everything you might possibly want…both discount and upscale shopping malls, ultra-modern supermarkets with all the in-demand brands, wine and cheese boutiques…and of course, top-quality hospitals such as the gleaming Punta Pacifica, affiliated with Johns Hopkins in the U.S.

The truth is, Panama has so much going for it, including the world’s best Retirement Program that offers a myriad of hefty discounts and other incentives.

For all these reasons and more, Panama is one of the world’s top retirement destinations.

You can satisfy just about any lifestyle dreams in Panama. If you prefer beach living, for example, you’ll find more than 1,500 miles of coastline, including some 1,000 idyllic islands.

And besides little Santa Fe where Mitzi and Bill live, there are other mountain towns, too, like Boquete—which is far larger, with a well-established expat community and all the modern conveniences you’d expect.
