Panama has one of the most diverse economies in Latin America. Thanks to its unique geographical location, Panama offers a stable economy. There are two Panama canals. The first canal was built in 1914, and the new larger canal began operations on June 26, 2016. Panama uses the US dollar as its paper currency, and all business is transacted in US dollars.
The health care system has both a public and private option. The private option is more
comparable to the North American standard with English-speaking doctors.
Panama is easily accessible from many parts of the globe through its modern Tocumen International Airport. Tocumen, located outside Panama City, serves as a hub to the world and all of Latin America.
The Boquete area of Panama has a large expat community that offers many of the amenities suited to an active lifestyle. There is a championship par 72 golf course, clay tennis courts, restaurants, outdoor adventure sports and even an annual jazz & blues festival. Located directly south of Boquete is the city of David, where there are more shopping options. There are multiple flights from Panama City to David each day. Once in David you will drive to Boquete along a newly completed four lane highway.
We know that deciding to live in a foreign county is a huge decision for most people. There are many issues involved when deciding to pull up roots and move away from what is your comfort zone. Each country has its own set of customs, laws and social structure. We've done it ourselves. That is why our approach is to make one part of the process a little easier for those who choose to move to Panama. Instead of having people deal with the ordeal of building their own home from scratch, which involves having to purchase land to build on, hiring an architect, contractors and attorneys, we decided to offer quality homes that are move-in ready.
The principle owners of 3 Rivers Developers have lived in Panama for the past 12 years. We are expats that had successful careers in our previous lives. We started a home construction company for the purpose of offering hassle free quality built homes to people who just want to enjoy the benefits of living in Panama, without having to go through the construction process in a foreign country.
Throughout the years we've seen Panama grow by leaps and bounds. Panama offers a stable economy, a great climate and warm inviting people. We hope that you consider us in your future plans if you decide Panama is right for you.
