When you think of Panama, you might initially think of a third world country. But with the tremendous growth that Panama has experienced in recent years, the cities and business districts within Panama have begun to thrive. Now, Panama is chock full of golf clubs, beach resorts, shopping centers, restaurants, medical centers, supermarkets, and more.
Wherever you go, Panama offers reliable high-speed internet and power connections. Cable television and mobile service are available from a wide variety of cellular carriers found throughout the country. The government is investing in roads and highways, improving the conditions year after year. And even better? You can drink the water in Panama – right from the tap if you want to.
Panama’s government situation is stable, supporting civil liberties, foreigner-friendly laws, and policies to welcome all kinds of commerce. Though Panama may be surrounded by less fortunate and lesser developed countries, Panama itself is thriving and open to tourists and new residents.
With temperatures that average in the 90s (Fahrenheit), and evenings that cool off to a comfortable 70-degrees, Panama might be the next best place for digital nomads looking to work and live in a warm and sunny climate.
