We will be making our move to the Boquete area May 1st. One of our concerns is the least expensive way to access our money.
We have been in contact with HSBC and their fees are a bit stiff, especially for incoming and outgoing wire transfers. Using the ATMs in Boquete to access our US accounts incurs fees from the ATM terminal in Boquete and our bank in the States. With a maximum limit we can access daily meaning several accesses a month, we can see that getting to our money will get expensive.
We would love to hear about what methods US expats are using to move money around and inexpensively getting access.
