It is now a thriving Central American nation and in complete control of the Panama Canal, built by the U.S. a century ago and run by Americans until the end of the 20th Century. Panama is also becoming a retirement haven for Americans. The Seasoned Traveler breathes in the sights and sounds of Panama , explains the economic and social advantages of calling the isthmus 'home', and introduces viewers to Americans who've already made the move to live out their days in Paradise. Panama has emerged as a leading retirement destination for Americans, and a great place to buy a second home. We start in Panama City, then head to the Gamboa Rainforest and the Chiriqui Mountains near the town of Boquete. The episode includes information on the significant incentives offered to Americans who move to this "retirement-friendly" country.
