Trip Report Panama vs Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

We just came back from a Costa Rica vacation after visiting Panama last year.
I have to start by saying that both countries are wonderful, warm and friendly.
We are thinking about buying a summer home either in Panama or Costa Rica.
Costa Rica we felt was ahead in dealing with expats but Panama more modern and with better infrastructure.
We love nature and Costa Rica would seem like the right option for us I have to say that we were surprised by Panama's nature and its easy access from the capital, something is not true for Costa Rica.
Last year in Panama we enjoyed a good mix of history, nature and culture vs the nature and adrenaline of Costa Rica.
My husband and kids just told me: Panama of course! No contest!
Panama here we come!
