Welcome to my first blog entry regarding Panama. I’ve been spending a lot of time down there over the past year, and I’m very impressed with the country. I didn’t realize that with the U.S. being actively involved with the Panama Canal until 1999, that the infrastructure would be so modern (compared with other Central American countries). The roads are good, the government is a stable democracy, the currency is the U.S. dollar, and real estate prices in the majority of the country are very low. This is especially true on the western slope of the Azuero peninsula, where a new paved road was put in less than three years ago.
I’ve attached a couple of videos that will hopefully give you a better feel for the area. If fishing is your thing, you can’t do much better than this place. Please feel free to include any comments or observations you may have, and of course you can contact me anytime at www.ThePanamaCollection.com.
