Advice Please - Moving to Panama from Canada

Post Posted: Mon Jul 27, 2009 9:48 pm

We have decided to leave the Canadian winters and migrate to Panama. We are in our late 40s with 2 teenage girls. We have decided to find a place in Bocas del Toro as we love the whole snorkeling/diving thing. We are looking for experiences, advice.. anything to assist us in this. A big question for us is the permanent visa requirements. We could buy a property per the regulations but would prefer it if there were other options. Some have suggested to just leave and go to Costa Rica or somewhere for 2 days every 90 days and just get a new guest visa. Does this work? Is it legal? Are there any issues just renewing your 90 day visa every 90 days? .. and is it as simple as just leaving the country for 2 days and getting a new visa stamp upon re-entry? Thanks for your help.
