The case for retiring in Panama Is persuasively made5 star

Panama has so many things going for it that are not common knowledge. This book makes a logical case that panama should be on your shortlist of countries to seriously consider retiring in. US dollar economy, no central-bank to screw up the economy, a multi line subway system in Panama City, no hurricanes, a very diversified economy with the government that focuses on building infrastructure to ensure long-term economic success. Sounds boring but when you add all that other beautiful things about Panama from fishing, animals in the regular tropical attractions panama is unique and central in Latin America and worthy of serious consideration55


Great entertainment value. Panama here I cone.5 star

Very impressive! Panama's Economic Development Agency has a remarkable ebook to market Panama.5 star

The author has combined great economic research with persuasive arguments and analysis that the Republic of Panama is increasingly in a class by itself economically and for foreigners to visit and relocate. He then proceeds to explain why this makes Panama the #1 choice for American, Canadian and European tourists, retirees, expats, medical tourists and business people. I came away very impressed and intrigued by Panama...the author sells Panama extremely well. This ebook has all the latest bells and whistles and showcases Apple's new iPad and ebook technology very well. There are 32 videos of just the exotic birds of panama. A masterful job at persuasion from a skilled marketer /author. Using the latest technologies to interest and then persuade plane loads of foreigners to visit Panama and perhaps subsequently relocate is more effective on a multi media ebook than a website. Is this the beginning of a trend in travel?55
