Snow birding, long term holiday, retirement  Seasonal migration is gaining acceptance as a form of retirement among Canadians, Americans and Northern Europeans. These so-called snowbirds spend their winters in the U.S. Sunbelt or in the south of Europe as residents of seasonal recreational communities. The defining qualities of life in snowbird communities are good value for your money, low crime rate, good medical care, quality facilities and high levels of recreation activity, social interaction and geographic mobility. More traditional snowbirds and others are looking for new, friendly, hospitable climates in which to escape harsh winter weather or blistering summer heat. Panama is becoming a desirable country to replace areas in the lower United States, Mexico, Costa Rica, Spain or Portugal. Panama is chosen due to its relatively low cost of living, low crime rate, availability of good and affordable medical care and more importantly its nice climate and tranquil lifestyle. A few of the many recreational activities available in the Chiriqui Highlands, located nearby our facilities, include hiking, bird watching, beaches, white water rafting, horseback riding and sport facilities like tennis, swimming or even golf. Social interaction is possible as more Canadian, American and European retirees are establishing themselves in the Chiriqui Highlands of Panama. Geographic mobility is good due to well developed roads and international flight connections. Panama is a Spanish-speaking country with enough English-speaking people to make living, on a short or long term basis, comfortable. The locals are very friendly toward foreigners. The currency is the Balboa which has the same value as the US-Dollar, so there is a guaranteed good value for those with American Dollars or Euro income. Most of the purchases can be made with credit cards. Inexpensive telephone and e-mail alternatives make staying in touch with home base relatively pain free.
