5 Reasons Why You Need to Stop Making Excuses About Moving to Panama




Print Friendly


Be honest, you’ve been thinking about moving to Panama for some time now, but something always keeps you from pulling the trigger. You do research, you talk with other expats and retirees on forums, you endlessly search and watch videos on YouTube, and you even daydream about it. If any of this resonates with you, you’re not alone. Moving to another country, especially when you want it to be a permanent home, is a big decision. And like all big decisions, there are so many factors you need to account for that it can be overwhelming. It shouldn’t, however, turn you away from taking the plunge and going for it. Here are five reasons why we believe it’s time to stop with the excuses, and go head-on into a new life in Panama.

1. You’re not getting younger.

As each year goes by, we all age. We all see our future in a different light, and spend our time as we see fit, year after year. If you’re spending years considering your move to Panama without actually doing it, think of all the time you could have spent actually enjoying the country rather than simply thinking about it. The sooner you do it, the more time you can spend your golden years here. Trust us, you’re not getting younger.

2. Life without Panama is still not doing it for you.

Come on, if you’ve spent a few years meticulously planning, dreaming about, and talking about moving to Panama, it means there’s something in your current life that you want to change. That’s OK, and many of us go through it year after year. The thing is though, if you don’t take action on making a proactive change (whether it’s Panama or not), you’ll carry that dissatisfaction with you. Stop thinking about changing your life, and do it!

3. Panama is on the move.

Panama is in a unique position in Central America in that it’s been riding a wave of prosperity (even during the 2008/9 global economic crisis) for more than ten years. It’s a country rife with opportunity in nearly every sector. The longer you wait, and the more excuses you make, the less chance you have of being a part of that. Even if you’re just planning on retiring, there are some great deals to be had as far as real estate, travel, food, and tourism. Why not be a part of that growth NOW?

4. Let your money work for you in Panama.

By moving to Panama, you can do more than just survive on savings, or social security. You can make some great investments in many different sectors in Panama, and being there in person, as a resident, will make this much, much easier. The sooner you get here and get your residency, the sooner you can make lucrative investments that can net you passive income, and PAY for your new life. Waiting and making excuses just costs you money, when you look at Panama as a business opportunity.

5. A dream only becomes a reality when you take action.

We all dream. We all have goals. We all want something better for ourselves. For many of you reading this right now, that dream is Panama. But you’ll never know how truly magical it can be until you quit the excuses and just do it. Don’t let your dream of a new life fizzle out, or turn into a “what if?” The only thing stopping you is your fear. It’s time to get past it, get rid of the excuses, and make a new life in Panama. And we’ll help you every step along the way.
