I'm a Canadian woman also and am planning on moving to Panama as well. I was going to sell and move this summer, but I decided to stay one more year in Ontario, get my place on the market mid April and be ready to leave in the fall.. Then I will only have 2 more years before pensions..
I like you would also like to chat with other people who are planning a move. I have travelled quite a bit but always as a tourist. So taking the plunge can be a little overwhelming..
Boquete seems nice and temperate, and like a very popular spot... I've read and it makes common sense to be on the ground there to look for an apartment..
Where are you thinking of going? Are you back in Canada now?
Hope to hear from you and good luck on your move
