James David Audlin of Editores Volcán Barú – Best Places In The World To Retire User Account
There are relatively few U.S., Western European, and Canadian expatriates living in the Volcán and Cerro Punta region. (Again, please note that, here in Latin America, the word "American" does NOT mean "from the United States" - it is America from Baffin Island to the Tierra del Fuego!) I can think of about a dozen expatriate couples in or near my village of Paso Ancho. Nearby and larger Volcán has a lot more, but still not that many in comparison to the general population. Cerro Punta, which is the end of the road, has relatively fewer. Since I am multilingual, I have easily encountered a number of French- and German-speaking foreigners, for instance. With a few unpleasant exceptions, most of the gringos here are incredibly nice people. Since the gringo community is proportionally small, most of them have learned to be self-sufficient and to make friends with, trust, and rely on their Panamanian neighbors. If you prefer to live around a lot of gringos, I suggest the Boquete area, or the seacoast cities.
