Tips and Advice on Panama from Your Fellow South African Expats

Obviously, expat life in Panama goes well beyond shipping your belongings and taking care of red tape. Socializing with fellow South Africans is an important facet of living abroad and can be a huge stepping stone in getting to know the Panamanian mentality and way of life. South Africans in Panama are a part of our community, calling cities such as Colón, Balboa, Panama City, and many others home. You can use InterNations to look for fellow South Africans in Panama City, for example.
