Panama Canal Zone, Panama City, Panama
For all intents and purposes, the “Zone” (as it was known prior to its handover to Panama in 1999) was U.S. sovereign territory. Residents were mainly U.S. military personnel or employed by the Panama Canal Company, which was controlled by the U.S. government.
With its old military barracks and facilities, these neighborhoods are tropical residential areas with unique architectural designs, popular with immigrants and those wanting to get away from the city and closer to nature.
Adjacent to the Amador area is the Balboa neighborhood, still a potential source of a convertible U.S.-style original home.
Albrook is filled with prior military barracks and officer quarters. One of the great things about Albrook, is how calm and quiet the area is. You can sit outside and listen to the breeze and kids playing in playgrounds nearby.
Clayton is spread over quite a large area separated by green areas and forest. There are a number of separate communities as well as some large private schools such as Colegio Javier, Las Esclavas, and Kings College, the British school of Panama. The U.S. Embassy is also located in this neighborhood.
As you enter the City of Knowledge area, you see row after row of one-story houses, which are now used for hospitality housing. Many visiting scientists and researchers stay in these houses while working in the area. City of Knowledge was really the original model by which the Panamanian government began to convert military installations to civilian facilities.
There’s plenty of entertainment around the former Canal Zone. Plus, you’re practically in Panama City, so you’re only minutes from everything else the city has to offer…
When the United States had control of the Panama Canal, this area was known as the Canal Zone (or Áreas Revertidas del Canal de Panama), and it is approximately 550 square miles.
The neighborhoods that make up the former Canal Zone, now known as Áreas Revertidas, are Ancón/ Balboa, Albrook, Diablo, Los Rios, Curundu, and Clayton/City of Knowledge…SKU: PSR-PANAMA-CANAL-ZONE

Panama City Beaches Area
The area between Punta Chame and Rio Hato are known as the arco seco, or the dry arc.
What’s so special about the arco seco? While many areas of Panama get 100 inches of annual rain, the arco seco gets below 55 inches. This gives the beaches in this area better weather and sunnier days.
Coronado is at the center of the area that spans Punta Chame and Rio Hato. It was among Panama’s first resort developments and remains an area of high interest for expats, tourism, and vacationers. The cultural mix here includes Panamanians and expats from the Americas, Canada, Europe, and elsewhere.SKU: PSR-PANAMA-CITY-BEACHES

Bocas del Toro, Panama | Overseas Haven Report
Bocas has been regarded before as little more than a slum. To be fair, some corners of the town could leave you with that impression, but things are changing here. The government is beginning to take note of the tourism potential and is investing in infrastructure accordingly. As recently as a decade ago, paved roads, sewage treatment, and even slightly reliable electricity had yet to arrive to town. Today, Bocas is more attractive than ever before and continues to improve thanks to the locals, tourists, and foreign residents alike.
Improvements in infrastructure are ongoing and at a steady pace.
Small-scale, start-up tourism businesses have begun to take hold here, becoming the best option for a Caribbean escape in Panama. From cheap backpacker hostels and bars, to expensive forest, yoga, or adventure retreats, a trip to Bocas can be a “roughing it” experience or a luxury relaxation. Improvements in infrastructure are ongoing and at a steady pace. Even recycling has now been recognized as a necessity if they are to save their pristine sand and surf.
Come nightfall, Bocas buzzes with activity. Hostels, bars, and hostel-bars are full of visitors from around the world, eating, drinking, socializing, and enjoying live music.
You could even do business in Bocas if you know what you’re doing and can find the right market niche or demand, and do well for yourself. As for real estate, you can find properties at prices from both sides of the spectrum; old buildings from failed businesses, renovated houses, or luxurious forest mansions designed by acclaimed architects.
Bocas has beauty, charm, and progress. Bocas is never boring.
This carefree, stunning destination has a character and a magnetism all its own.SKU: OHR-BOCAS-DEL-TORO

Wildlife you might encounter here includes howler monkeys, tiger herons, green iguanas, hawksbill and leatherback turtles, hammerhead sharks, white-tipped reef sharks, manta rays, and dolphins.

Ljubljana and Bled, Slovenia | Overseas Haven Report
Ljubljana may just be the most fascinating city you can’t pronounce. Walking the streets of this city’s historic center, you may mistake yourself for strolling the rues of Paris… or maybe the avenues of Prague… perhaps even the boulevards of Buenos Aires—Ljubljana is as cosmopolitan as any of them.
Yet Slovenia also offers outdoor adventures in spades: skiing, biking, hiking, golf, mineral spas, lakes for boating, vineyards for touring, caves for exploring, and even a few kilometers of beaches. If you value being able to hit the beach in summer and the slopes in winter, Slovenia provides the best of all worlds.
Slovenia’s natural charm is best experienced in the fairy tale lake and ski resort town of Bled, nestled in the Julian Alps only 20 minutes from Ljubljana. Each city benefits greatly by its proximity to the other; if you live in Ljubljana, Bled is an enchanting and easy escape, and if you live in Bled, you’ve got the capital and all it comes with right at your doorstep. From cosmopolitan historic capital to otherworldly mountain retreat, this report uncovers the irresistible magic of Slovenia.SKU: OHR-LJUBLJANA-BLED-SLOVENIA
