Banking In Panama – Where And How To Open Your Account
Panama is Central America’s preeminent banking destination. Its thriving banking sector has fueled the growth of the country’s economy and attracted dozens of international banks from around the globe. Of the 75 banks currently operating in the country, 2 are state-owned, 47 have general licenses, and 26 have international licenses.
Why Panama, you ask?
For starters, the country boasts strong regulatory oversight that maintains the stability of the banking system, and banks tend to stay afloat during periods of economic turmoil. Favorable tax incentives and high certificate of deposit (CD) rates draw in a constant flow of cash from foreign individuals and entities. On top of that, there are several laws in place that help ensure the privacy of clients. Together these factors contribute to Panama’s appeal as an offshore banking haven.SKU: PSR-BANKING-PANAMA

Starting A Restaurant Business In Panama
From its inception, the Isthmus of Panama has attracted merchants the world over, all eager to turn a profit in this land of opportunity. Like immigrants everywhere, they brought their cultures and customs along with them, and nowhere has this been more apparent than in Panama’s dynamic and ever-evolving food-biz landscape.
It’s been over a century since the Panama Canal opened its locks to world commerce. In that time, waves of arrivals have contributed to the melting pot of cuisines we see in the country today, from Chinese chow mein to Jamaican jerk and some of the best pizza you’ll find outside of Italy. In the last decade, give or take a few years, Panama City has morphed into a must-experience foodie destination for gourmands of all stripes, with street food and fine-dining options to tempt the most demanding palates.
In this special report, we explore the country’s landscape through its food, seeing it through the eyes of the restaurateurs who are bringing the flavors of the world to our doorstep. We’ll check out good eats from Panama City out to the beaches and up to the mountain towns… and take a peek behind the kitchen doors of those intrepid entrepreneurs—some expat, others local—with the business chops to make their living one plate (or coffee cup) at a time.SKU: PSR-PANAMA-RESTAURANT-BUSINESS

Many people only know Aguadulce as that annoying little town along the Pan-American Highway where traffic becomes congested… And it’s true—but it’s a misconception that traffic is all there is to this town. The other misconception is that Aguadulce’s only attraction is the Spanish-colonial architecture. There’s so much more…
Aguadulce’s history is mysterious… It was known as “la tierra de la sal y el azúcar” (the land of salt and sugar) during the late 18th century and was baptized as San Juan Bautista de Aguadulce around the same time.
The Aguadulceña community takes great pride in their cultural history and its importance to the country. The small town preserves several cultural landmarks that the now Ministry of Culture proclaimed important to Panama’s national heritage in 2017…
One is the Museum of Salt and Sugar, with its colonial architecture and canary yellow façade. For a nominal fee, you can look at pre-Colombian artifacts, historical documents, photographs, as well as the origins of the sugar industry. Another iconic building is the Eduardo Pedreschi Municipal Palace. Built in 1925, it’s named after the Italian architect who designed many of the important buildings in the city.
Currently, Aguadulce is restoring, improving, and repairing important city structures, with many visible renovation projects like Parque 19 de Octubre, directly across the street from the historic San Juan Bautista Church.
If you enjoy fresh air and sunshine (with some rain mixed in), Aguadulce is a great place to live, with an abundance of outdoor activities to do here… limited only by your imagination and abilities.SKU: PSR-AGUADULCE

Albrook and Clayton, Panama City, Panama
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you the areas of Albrook and Clayton, Panama City.
Both Albrook and Clayton originated as part of the Panama Canal Zone. The infrastructure and neighborhoods were built by U.S. engineers to be used by the U.S. armed forces. When the U.S. government turned the Panama Canal over to the Panamanians 10 years ago, Clayton and Albrook came as part of the package. In the decade since, these two communities have developed into quiet, peaceful residential areas with parks, single-family homes, some of the best schools in Panama, and small retail areas. Perfect if you’re relocating with a family but very appealing, too, if you’re just looking for a more suburban experience.SKU: PSR-ALBROOK-CLAYTON

Amador Causeway, Panama City, Panama
In this Panama Special Report, we tour Panama’s Causeway in Amador, a former U.S. military outpost and Canal Zone recreation area that is today enjoying a multi-million dollar makeover.
The Amador Causeway has a long and winding history tied to the construction of the Panama Canal and the nearly 100-year occupation of the Canal Zone by U.S. military forces. Used first as a military base, Amador was later repurposed as a sprawling recreation area for the exclusive use of U.S. military personnel and their families. Languishing in neglect since the 1999 handover dictated by the Torrijos-Carter Treaty that returned the land to Panama, the Causeway is today the focus of an ambitious plan to transform it into a five-star residential community whose key feature, a cruise-ship terminal, will rival ports of call throughout the Americas.SKU: PSR-AMADOR-CAUSEWAY

You know you’ve entered this area when on one side you see multicolored storage containers stacked one on top of the other, like a Lego village, while on the opposite side of the street you see boxy, tan-colored old military barracks and government buildings.SKU: PSR-BALBOA-LA-BOCA-AMADOR

Best of Panama’s Caribbean
Our Best of Panama’s Caribbean Coast Special Report is your beginners guide to finding the best opportunities on this side of the isthmus.
The Caribbean Coast of Panama is notoriously underdeveloped—a pro or a con depending on what kind of lifestyle you’re looking for. This side of the country’s infrastructure is basic at best, and, as a result, fewer foreigners have settled on Panama’s northern side. English is less generally spoken than on the Pacific side, though the touristy Bocas del Toro is an exception—here the high volume of visitors means most working in the service industry speak English, and many businesses are American or Canadian owned.
From the rugged but expat-popular Bocas del Toro islands in the far west to the colonial cities of Colón and Portobelo, the Caribbean options are few but varied. This report details Panama’s best options on the Caribbean…SKU: PSR-BEST-CARIBBEAN
