Cool Panama: Your Top Temperate Destinations…
Panama’s doesn’t have many options for climate other than tropical… there are only a few places on this little isthmus that enjoy lower humidity and/or lower temperatures than their sea-level counterparts—and, yes, all of these cooler havens are above sea level. But there are a handful of appealing destinations that offer something close to springtime weather. In this report, we take a look at Panama’s top options for temperate-climate living.SKU: PSR-COOL-CLIMATE
Panama Special Reports
Panama is surrounded by beaches, and Panamanians have a variety of weekend getaways to choose from, but Coronado, only about an hour’s drive outside the city, isn’t just any beach. It’s the most turn-key, expat-friendly beach community in Panama.
Coronado is a town where expats gather for drinks, dinner, and dancing at least twice a week. Three international schools are located either in the town or the surrounding Pacific beach areas.
You can also keep the kids (and yourself) busy with an equestrian school, a surfing school, and even golf classes, all available right in town. Panama correspondent Chris Powers describes Coronado as the “furnished home of the tropics.” Whether you are looking for an oceanside retirement retreat, a place to raise your kids, or a weekend getaway, you’ll have no problem adjusting to your new home away from home in Coronado.SKU: PSR-CORONADO

Costa del Este, Panama
It’s simply the best neighborhood in the city for young families…It’s clean, well maintained, safe…and close enough to the city for convenience but far enough removed for peace and quiet.
Costa del Este has excellent schools, parks, and daycare facilities…and all the shopping and services a family would need. Further, mom and dad might not even have to commute downtown everyday since Costa del Este has attracted numerous multinational and Panamanian corporations who’ve set up shop in the neighborhood’s commercial zones.
The cost of living is higher in Costa del Este than anywhere else in the city, but you’d be paying for a lifestyle that others dream about. And with more shops, hotels, restaurants, a new town center, and more corporate offices on the way, we don’t expect the appeal of Costa del Este, the Panamanian Dream, to diminish anytime soon.SKU: PSR-COSTA-DEL-ESTE
Overseas Haven Reports, Ecuador
Cuenca, Ecuador | Overseas Haven Report
As a favored destination for English-speaking expatriates, Cuenca is strictly a 21st-century phenomenon.
The infrastructure is good and getting better, the weather and colonial culture are excellent and it is relatively easy to get to, especially from the United States.
The city is the perfect size for a lot of people—large enough to have big city amenities and cultural activities but small enough to have a comfortable, homey feel.
The cultural attractions includes Cuenca’s Cañari and Inca heritage, its well-preserved Spanish historic district (second only in South America to nearby Quito’s size), and its reputation as a center for the arts.
It features dozens of museums and art galleries and hosts an international film festival and an art bienal.
Another major draw for expats is Cuenca’s low cost of living, allowing North Americans to live comfortably on Social Security and pension checks.
Other incentives include: an efficient public transportation system, the best drinking water in Latin America, and good health and dental care.
Ample opportunities for outdoor activities abound, including biking, fishing and hiking.
And Cuenca is a great place to get around on foot.SKU: OHR-CUENCA-ECUADOR

Da Lat, Vietnam | Overseas Haven Report
Best known as “Little Paris,” Da Lat is a resort town in Vietnam’s Central Highlands. Often shrouded in mist thanks to its altitude, its elevation also means year-round mild weather and pine forests, attracting plenty of expats and tourists seeking cooler climes. The climate also means an abundance of local produce available no matter the month.
Da Lat is Vietnam’s honeymoon capital, often called the Valley of Love, offering flower gardens, swan-shaped paddleboats, a miniature Eiffel Tower, and much more to the romantic at heart. Plus, golf courses for those who like to hit the links.
The city is relatively small (under 400 square kms), allowing you to get around on foot. It’s also considered a safe area, not subject to earthquakes or other natural disasters.
Perhaps the best thing about Da Lat, though, is that it can be enjoyed at an shockingly low cost. Everything from rent to health insurance to a cup of coffee is cheaper than it is back home, and you can live well here on nothing but your pension.
If you’re after peace and tranquility, rest, and relaxation, this might be the place for you.SKU: OHR-DA-LAT-VIETNAM
Panama Special Reports
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you the expat-friendly city of David, Panama.
David boasts a busy social calendar. Club David is the Chiriquí equivalent of the Club Union in Panama City, “the” place for business and social events with the right people. Each year, Club David hosts many events for the local community and many events for various charities. Most are open to the public.
In March there’s the Feria International de David (International David Fair). Check out the exhibits, eat the food, and don’t miss the Horse Parade.
Like most areas in Panama, David doesn’t have much of an infrastructure for someone with a disability. To get around using a wheelchair would be nearly impossible. However, there is some progress being made in this area. The progress is slow, but it’s well on its way.SKU: PSR-DAVID

Durango, Mexico | Overseas Haven Report
Mexico is one of the most expat-populated countries in the world, yet few have heard about Durango—the large, sophisticated city with great weather and a high standard of living. Durango delivers the best of Mexico… the real, unadulterated version beyond the resorts and expat havens.
Despite its lack of recognition, you’ve likely seen Durango on your TV screen without realizing it. Over 140 Hollywood movies have been shot in this Sierra Madre destination, including Westerns that featured the likes of John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, and Kirk Douglas. On top of this, it has clean, well-kept streets… amazing architecture more reminiscent of Europe than Spanish America… newly constructed pedestrian-only areas lined with cafés, shops, and clubs… and a property market that offers astounding value for its worth.
Discover the charming city that Lee Harrison calls his “most exciting personal find of the past few years” in this Overseas Haven Report on Durango, Mexico.SKU: OHR-DURANGO-MEXICO
Overseas Haven Reports, Portugal
Eastern Algarve, Portugal | Overseas Haven Report
In this Overseas Haven report we explore East Algarve.
Because of the huge increase in tourism in Portugal, standard popular areas are getting crowded and expensive. Hence, the attention on this part of Portugal’s world-famous Algarve region. European expats have been moving here in droves, especially the British, and now an increasing American influx is being felt. This means an active, English-speaking expat community to plug into along with the lower cost of living, great weather, and outdoor activities on offer.
Eastern Algarve is perfect for those with a love of nature and the outdoors. The warm weather and laid-back life near the sea harkens to a slower time spent with friends and family enjoying the sunshine and outdoors. The pace is yours and can be dialed up or down as you like. If you’re ready to savor moments in the sun… discover a healthier lifestyle and food… find a safe place with an emphasis on family and friends… live a first-world life at third-world prices… make a good investment with the benefit of an EU passport… and do it all without a language barrier to start… you’ll find many options await you in eastern Algarve.SKU: OHR-EASTERN-ALGARVE-PORTUGAL
