NEW 2012 EDITION UPDATED & WITH NEW MATERIAL including "Fifteen Things Not To Like About Panama" and "What People Won't Tell You . . . And Can't Tell You". Here's how we made the decision to retire early and move to Boquete, Panama, some of the things you need to consider if you are going to pick up and move to any new location and culture, and practical information and tips for retiring or moving to Panama. * * * * “Moving to another country is a big decision but Richard’s book helps you think through all the benefits of moving to Panama. Get ESCAPE TO PARADISE! It is a GREAT book and the best information I have found anywhere about relocating to Panama.” Jackie Lang “My husband and I both enjoyed this book immensely! We made the move ourselves to Boquete, Panama six years ago. If ONLY we had had this book to help prepare ourselves when we were first considering making the move!! The author tells you everything you need to know about what it’s like to live here. We loved the way he included his own experiences in the telling. It made it ever so much more personal and interesting to us. If you have any thoughts about finding your own paradise, and particularly finding your paradise, as we and the author did, here in Boquete, Panama, you MUST buy this book!! ” Sharron “Squirt” James “Richard really hit the nail….of all places…on the head !! Of all the articles and books I RESEARCHED…this one tells it like it really is, with no personal axes to grind. Even though Richard has obviously been in Panama for quite some time his approach is current. His answers are to questions that the other literature I read failed to ask….much less answer! Not only that, his approach is far from lofty or detached…it’s like you’re both sittin’ 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 the info YOU’RE interested in!!” Bob Little "Your book . . . is entertaining, informative, and a quick read. Once I started reading it, I found it difficult to put down." Harry Kooiman
