Expats in San Francisco, Republic of Panamá.
Panamá is by tradition "crisol de razas" (crucible of races) since the colonial times...in the 15th century. Valuable cultural and political contributions have been a tradition by all Latin American countries, where Panamá has played a prime role as the main path in "the American continent", where gold was taken from South America to Spain, as well as the main path for all seekers of gold, in the "gold area" in California at the beginning of the 19th century.
All this tradition has lasted through the years and to the present time, as the Republic of Panamá continues to be the host for many people who seek better lives, especially at their retirement years.
Every town and city in this country receives expats with love and open arms, as Panamanians are warm and kind, and have always welcomed visitors, not only through the Panamá Canal but in every road that can bring comfort to visitors.
So San Francisco, in the heart of Panamá City, is not the exception. People from all parts of the American Continent, many coming from the United States and Canada, others from Colombia, Venezuela, some from Central America and many others from Europe, are treated like what they are: dear guests, who, if they comply with rules and laws in the country are welcome to enjoy a relaxing and beautiful life with locals, who at every moment try to accommodate visitors and giving them the comfort they´re looking for, especially if visitors try to understand and respect their traditions, customs and language.
