ABC News Minnesota Profiles Retirement in Panama

Good news for Boquete real estate investors: a local ABC News affiliate recently spent 3 days in Panama trying to figure out why so many Minnesotans are deciding to spend their retirement in Panama. To those of us who have experienced winters in the upper Midwest, it is no surprise that older people would rather live out their golden years basking in the warmth of a Central American country. But weather was only one of a number of factors cited by those who chose to retire in Panama.

The cost of living generally and health care specifically topped the list as well as a general sense of adventure. The ABC News crew talked to dozens of retirees and visited a plethora of places, including grocery stores and hospital rooms. You can see the report here:

I have known John for over 5 years now and, aside from being excellent golfers, they are dear friends. If I ever decide to sell my house, they will be my only call. - John H.

My family and I traveled to Panama in July looking for a luxury home. We fell in love with Boquete instantly. Through their personal contacts, John was able to show us 4 amazing homes that were not listed anywhere else in Panama. See you next month! - Beth K.

My partners and I purchased a large cattle farm through BoqueteForSale earlier this year. They neogotiated hard on our behalf and we came away with what we believe to be the best investment opportunity in Panama.

My husband and I purchased a villa in Valle Escondido in August. We were ready to accept the seller's counter-offer, but John insisted that we continue negotiating. We are glad we did because we saved $18,000. Thanks! - Jayne B.
