Kite Festival at the City of Knowledge, Panama – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThe majority of the people in Clayton are expats from all over the world. Most of them are there working, so it is not so much a retirement expat community. Most people who are in Clayton are either working for the American embassy or at the NGOs at the City of Knowledge so the expat community there tend to be young, small families. (Kite Festival at the City of Knowledge, pictured.) There are a few retirement groups there, but not as many.

There are may expats from the U.S. and Canada living in Fort Clayton.  Prior to 2008, many retirees from the U.S. sold their homes at good prices and moved to Panama, where they were able to by a decent home and live very comfortably on their retirement income.  Also quite a few younger Americans moved to Panama.
 
In addition to the Americans and Canadians, we have a large number of Venezuelans who are moving to Panama to seek a safer place for them and their children, and they are also making many investments all over Panama.
 
Generally speaking most expats living in Panama are middle class professionals.   Many live in Panama during the winter months and return to the U.S. for the warm weather season.
