Panama is one of the most stable democratic republics in the Americans and has been a committed U.S. Ally since the construction of the Panama Canal in the early 1900’s . The crime rate is far lower than that in most U.S. Cities and other vacation and retirement destinations.
- Panama is blessed by nature – unlike the rest of her Central American neighbours, Panama has no hurricanes amazingly it’s in a special climate area that is totally hurricane –proof. It also has no major earthquakes.
- Panama City is just 2 1 /2 hours by air from Miami, and you find direct flights to several other U.S. Cities, too, including Houston, Atlanta, and Newark. Panama is the hub of the Americas for Continental / COPA airlines.
