"Check other places in Panama.  Boquete is popular and that has pushed prices up.  It’s not a place I’d consider aside from a vacation.  I look at things from a Canadian $ perspective and I am Brit and Panama seems…"

"For single trips just a reminder that Uber works in Panama City.  You can also use it to gauge what an appropriate fare might be.  We used it to negotiate the fare from the airport to downtown."

"Take a break in Panama City. If you haven’t been there before it’s worth a couple of days at least to see the old city, walk along the causeway, eat well and walk around the park trails near Albrook (bits of planes near the paths from…"

"Look up Ross Blankert on this forum and he can pick you up and drop you off from David airport to Boquete at a very reasonable price.  If you’re staying self catering to start with then he’ll stop at a grocery store on the way for…"

"I’ve never really understood gated communities.  If a place is that dangerous that you feel you need to live in one, why would you go? If that’s not the reason then it must be because you don’t wish to attempt to assimilate…"

"Have you looked at El Valle too?  I actually prefer it there for a few different reasons.  Similar climate, seems a little cheaper, closer to Panama City, less expats (a little more “authentically Panamanian” in my opinion)."

"2 weeks self catering holiday and you’ll get the answer. Buying off local (Panamanian) vendors is cheap for produce. Guys at the end of our street gave us fresh from the field cilantro and we had avocados from trees on our doorstep, so some…"

"Canada....still looking. Boquete is not the place for me.  It’s a victim of its own success and has lost enough of what it once had (I was there 15 years ago too) to be unappealing."

"Panama is actually one of the most advanced countries in Central America.  Nice new metro system in Panama City for example and shopping malls that some US cities could only dream of.  Sometimes the rest of the country takes a little while…"

"Seriously just book a 2 week vacation there for now. Copa airlines is reasonably priced at various times. Stay in 2-3 different places (use VRBO) to get a feel for the place,  You’ll also have a lovely vacation and might also save…"

"That is dicey. Most places have a “vibe” that you can’t experience by reading Internet forums etc. You really need to visit before finding out if that “vibe” isn’t  for you."
