    house in bocas del toro – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingHiring a maid  or housekeeper in Bocas del Toro, Panama is much less expensive than in the US. It can range from $2.50 an hour to $5.00 an hour.
     
    We pay our maid $20.00 for 4 hours to clean our apartment. She is very good at what she does so we like to give her a bonus on Christmas or a present on her birthday. When you find the good ones, as anywhere, you want to keep them.
  •  Isla Pájaro, Isla Colon, Bocas del Toro, Panamà – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingWe have a lady who comes over to clean our house here in Bocas Del Toro who we pay US $20 per day. She does a really nice job of cleaning inside the house and she does the wash and everything. She works around 6 to 8 hours.
     
    The daily rate is $20, but if you hire someone on a regular basis for full time employment, it comes down to about $17 per day.

    The cost for a maid or a house keeper in Bocas del Tor can be as low as US $1.77 per hour (around $300 per month).  In Panama, there are other payments to employees including one month paid vacation, insurance, liquidation at the end of their contract and quarterly payments known as Decimo.  Even with all the payments throughout the contract, you are still paying less than $450 per month for a full time worker.
