Panama City – Most Expensive City in Central America

The website Numbeo recently compiled it’s list of the world’s most expensive cities for 2017.  It was shocking to see that 7 of the world’s 10 most expensive cities were in the same country:  Switzerland.  As a former Manhattan resident, I also found it interesting that Brooklyn had a higher cost of living than Manhattan.  My how things have changed since I left the Big Apple for Boquete in 2006.

And, while Panama City, Panama ranked towards the middle of the pack (294/511), it was listed as the most expensive city in Central America – more expensive than San Antonio, TX, Reno, NV and Buenos Aires, Argentina.

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.
