Not a fan of selfie-sticks? You might want to leave Panama.

Thousands of selfie-stick toting tourists might soon be invading Panama as Varela’s recently decided to reopen biliateral relations with mainland China.  This will make it easier for tourists from the country to travel to Panama with some even predicting a direct flight in the future.  Chinese fast growing middle class creates an opportunity for tour operators in both countries to capitalize on this new and growing market.  As a tourist business owner, I certainly welcome new travelers to Panama.  But after having nearly lost an eye while visiting the Louvre last year by an old Chinese lady snapping selfies in front of the Mona Lisa, I hope they leave their self-sticks in China!

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.
