Medellín Offers So Much More Than Perfect Weather

Last Call To Join Us In The Land Of Eternal Spring

Following two events in Panama City, I’m looking forward to traveling to Medellín this month for our 2017 Live and Invest in Colombia Conference April 19–21.

For me, Medellín is a refreshing break from the fast pace (and higher humidity) of Panama City. It’s a city that’s noticeably clean and green… where it’s comfortable to sit out in the fresh air and enjoy the local cafés and parks.

Clean and green—a pleasant city to hang out

Clean and green—a pleasant city to hang out

Medellín’s springlike climate is a big draw for expats. Darren and Wendy Howarter from Illinois were relieved to trade months of snow for a climate that allows them to sit outdoors year round. But weather alone isn’t enough reason to choose your new home overseas. And Medellín has a lot more to offer…

When full-time expats Steve and Patricia Turney spoke at our event last year, they said it was the Colombian people that sealed the deal for them. And not just their neighbors on the streets. Steve told us how the doctors and dentists are just “ordinary guys” on your level:

“After we’d had checkups with cleaning—which, by the way, cost only US$35 for us both—the dentist mentioned one of his favorite restaurants that he thought we might enjoy…

“Before we left, he called the restaurant for us and made a lunch reservation. Can you imagine your dentist in Continue reading

The 4 Best Beaches In Panama

The 4 Best Beaches In Panama: Sun, Surf, And Speculation

Panama’s Top Beaches For Living and Investing

When I say Panama… crashing waves on a golden-sand beach… with not another soul around… may not be the first image that springs to mind.

But remember, this little country has two long coasts and several clusters of outlying islands… meaning lots of different beaches—Pacific and Caribbean, touristy and undiscovered, developed and emerging, accessible and remote.

My home in Panama City, up in the hills, serves me well for my day-to-day work. But any weekend we can get away, my boyfriend and I hit the beach… surfboards in tow… to enjoy the best of nature.

One of the best beaches I’ve been to is Morrillo on the Azuero Sunset Coast. This is pure escapism… an area I’d recommend if you want to experience all of nature and still have access to a small but growing community of like-minded adventurers.

If you love the beach—but would also welcome the advantages of being close to First World amenities—Panama’s “City Beaches” offer a great middle ground.

We’ll explore all your lifestyle options (beach and beyond) in more detail at our upcoming Live and Invest in Continue reading

How We Decided Where In The World We Wanted To Live

My husband and I decided early on that, come our senior years, we didn’t want to end up like our parents—his in one of the thousands of indistinguishable, “over fifty,” planned communities in Florida, or mine in the same small town they grew up in. Their daily lives followed a pretty set routine: seeing the same people they’d known for years, driving the same roads, shopping in the same stores, eating the same foods, wearing the same clothes, and living in the same house. As they got older, Continue reading
