   Is their enough sunlight during the rainy season to keep solar yard lights powered up?  I would assume they would function much better during the dry season. Your input is appreciated.  Continue

"  Just approaching 59 1/2 where I can start using my 401 without penalty. Got a ways to go before SS can kick in. An attorney is who gave me the original information but just like it was a doctor I think I will seek a second opinion. "

"Taklk to a Lawyer!  There are ways to prove that these are acceptable.  Although the paper work is very onerous.  If you have an  401K Why no SS Verification of Benefits Letter?  Not there yet by age?"

Pensioners Visa

  Anyone out there that has applied or is applying for their Pensionado Visa been told that income from your 401K retirement fund is not eligible to be considered as monthly income? Rather bothersome news that I just was told that may cause a serious adjustment to my relocation plans. Another option may be the friendly nations visa?  Any thoughts or suggestions? See More

Greetings Bryan!

I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome you to Boquete Ning.

Many of us joined this organization to make new friends, or to help understand what being new to an area means, sometimes to get information about businesses or even directions to get around.

You will find useful support with that and more here. So, don’t hesitate to use this forum to ask questions, for advice, and especially the chance to have coffee with new folks.

I will start out by offering some information about a couple of products I found essential to me when I first came to Panama several years ago. After scouring the Internet, I found the very best travel map produced for Panama. It comes from a world-renowned cartographer in Canada. Expat Imports is the name of the local firm that supports the importation of this company’s products in the Central and South Americas. In fact, it turns out that Expat Imports stock maps for all of Mexico, Central & South American countries, the Caribbean and Cuba right here in Pedasi, Panama.

Also, I would like to introduce you to the most fantastic research & information resource called Rainforest Nature Guides of Panama. They are beautifully hand illustrated, informative, and a great research tool, covering 16 separate categories such as birds, reptiles, fish, whales, flowers, trees, fruits, orchids and much more of the flora, fauna, and fish of Panama. You will find them at www.expatimports.com, plus lots of additional information about Panama on their website.

I hope this helps,

Cheers,

Mikkel
