Most gringos who move to Panama don't last more than two years. Many of them return to the USA or go somewhere else much earlier than that, because they have such a hard time getting acclimated.

Panama City, Panama (PRWEB) November 10, 2012
The Republic of Panama is fast becoming a top destination for expats moving, retiring and relocating outside the U.S. and Canada. Unfortunately, there’s a serious lack of information in the market about what the move to Panama is really like. Author Elizabeth Vance is a five-year veteran of life in Panama. She grew frustrated by the lack of realistic information about the expat experience, and took action to tell the real story, based on her own experiences. The Gringo Guide to Panama: What to Know Before You Go is a key resource for those considering such a move.
From her first naive preconceptions to stark realities, The Gringo Guide to Panama: What to Know Before You Go outlines lessons the author learned. The first two years of her transition were a roller coaster, as is the case with many other North American expats in Panama. Elizabeth Vance took that experience and published this book, so others can avoid the pitfalls that many encounter.
While many other books share the nuts and bolts of moving to Panama, The Gringo Guide to Panama goes beyond that. In it, one can learn in-depth information about the nuances and idiosyncrasies of the culture of Panama. Elizabeth Vance’s style is frank, yet humorous, as she helps others better understand the country, in order to assimilate and settle in, much more quickly.
This book comes highly recommended to anyone thinking of relocating to Panama, moving to Panama or retiring to Panama. It dispels the marketing fluff, and gives a clear cut picture of what life in Panama as an expat is truly like.
