A buddy of mine is selling his house on a few acres on the mainland not far from Bocas del Toro. He is asking 65k for it lock stock and fruit trees. I have visited the area once before. It is laid back with great ocean vistas. My main concern was all of the policing going on. It just feels weird and like a police state at times. The locals were wonderful aside from some staring. I am wondering if the investment is worth it just for real estate value appreciation alone. I'd like to hear from those of you with experience in making investments in real estate in Panama (and resort towns in general).
