It’s a great place to start and you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions.

Local expats always say, “Richard tells it like it is!”  A lot of the big international companies that promote Panama this week, Ecuador the next and … yada yada yada … look only through rose colored glasses and blow a lot of smoke.  Moving to another country is a big decision and the more you know the better you will be able to decide if expat living is for you.

2015-escapeOften called “the best book about living and retiring in Panama” my book THE NEW ESCAPE TO PARADISE: OUR EXPERIENCE LIVING & RETIRING IN PANAMA is a must read.

“He answers questions that the other literature I read failed to ask, much less answer. His approach is far from lofty or detached. It’s like you’re both sitting at the breakfast table sharing conversation with a little wit here and an off-hand comment there: none of it a waste, but a nice easy way to give you the information.” Bob Little

“We gathered several publications, attended a conference and been to Boquete twice, but Escape To Paradise is by far the most useful book we have read so far.” Bob Milligan

“ I really enjoyed making the list of 15 things we wanted in our place of residence. Great exercise! This has honestly been more helpful to me than any other expat book I’ve read.” Lusk Meier

“Richard tells it exactly like it is … how I wish this wonderful tool were available before we moved here. It would have saved a lot of frustration trying to figure it all out for ourselves.” Kathy Donelson
