May 17, 2008
Having the fastest growing GDP rate in Latin America, Panama has become one of the best places to settle down after retirement. However, Panama Citys condo market is already overheated; therefore, investors are now going for lesser-known destinations where affordable property prices still exist.

Over the last few decades, Panama has become quite popular for adventure and ecotourism. The real estate sector of the country and the property business has grown as well. People from around the world like to live in a place where there is economic progress and a stable ruling government - Panama has got that. Panama also offers an attractive incentive program for retirees. The cost of living is low and the climate is beautiful all the year round.

Fact is, Panama Citys real estate sector has already seen a boom. Now other parts of the country are passing an upward growth rate as companies from around the world are seeking office space here and retirees from Europe and North America are seeking for residences. A few of the potential cities are mentioned herein:

Playa Coronado - the city is bordered by the Pacific Ocean, located between two rivers lajas and gorgona. Playa Coronado is surrounded by mountains and is just 50 minutes by road from the capital Panama City. The real estate boom is felt here too and due to rapid expansion, there are a lot of properties available for the interested buyers.

Another city, Boquete, Chiriqui is located in the highlands of Western Panama and is famous as a retirement destination.
