The expats in Fort Clayton are treated by the locals as they would treat normal Panamanians. All over Panama, we don’t have that any type of racism. We treat everybody pretty much the same. You will see that we have many different nationalities in Panama and the locals are very used to that.
The Clayton area, for example, used to be housing for the US military. When the Panama Canal was turned over to the Panamanians in 1999, most of the Americans went back to the US, although I guess a number of them never left Panama. Now, you can find a lot of American expats in various recreation areas at Fort Clayton such as at gyms and parks.
The foreigners should know that here in Panama, we have an open policy for all the people who want to visit or live in the country.
