Panama Cruises

Are you still tentative about experiencing Panama for the first time?

Think about a cruise!  Cruises enable their passengers to take advantage of a variety of activities and experience a number of different locations.  Taking a cruise on the Panama Canal, and traversing from the Atlantic ocean to the Pacific ocean, is a natural spectacle. 

By taking a cruise, you are able to enjoy your vacation to Panama – it takes away the concern of finding and arranging accommodations or setting up an itinerary.

Because of the work being done on The Panama Canal, the number of cruises to Panama is increasing.  Most cruises allow you to have access to 60 of the top beaches along the coasts as well as Colon’s world-class duty-free shopping

Let us know when you are thinking of visiting Panama – we want to convince you to move or retire here!  Visit our land deals at for more information!

Clipper Race Makes Way Through Panama

Today, the Clipper Race - a sailboat race around the world that has been around since 1996 – made its way through Panama, beginning Race #10 of the journey.

The race was shortened in its leg from Santa Cruz to Panama, due to displacement while the Canal is undergoing its makeover. Click here for video of the boats entering the canal. Click here for video of the boats exiting. The video features the Gatun and Miraflores locks. The locks allow for the boats to be 26 meters above sea level as they are sailing around the world.

From Colon, Panama, the race will continue to Port Antonio, Jamaica.

New Growth Announcements This Week....

This week, a couple of announcements were made that are sure to be beneficial for the country of Panama.  

First, next year, there will be a highway opened that connects Colon to Panama City.  This will provide a number of new jobs - most likely in the tourism trade - for locals in Colon.  There are also cruise lines that are signing up to use Colon as a base.  

Secondly, Chevron has announced that it plans to double its storage capacity at Las Minas, immediately outside of Colon.  The company has already invested $13 million in order to raise the capacity to over 2 million barrels at the facility, and future growth is anticipated.  The reasoning for the expansion is due to the increasing number of vessels utilizing the Panama Canal.  

These growth plans will do nothing but grant continued economic development and security to the area.  Are you thinking about retiring or moving to Panama?  Visit us at to view our properties for sale and to read more information about living in Panama!

HMS Bounty Travels Panama Canal

Yesterday, the HMS Bounty traveled through the Panama Canal on a promotional tour. This is the first time that the ship has traveled this route since the 1900s. The ship departed on April 6th from St. Petersburg, FL. It will head to Tahiti from Panama, and will return back to the United States through the Canal on January 9, 2009.

The ship’s history is interesting. It was built in 1784 and purchased by the Royal Navy in 1787. The ship is considered small, but standards at the time, and is a three-masted, full-rigged ship. In 1789, the ship was taken under mutiny in Tahiti. Read about the ship by

Most recently the ship has been used in motion pictures. In 2006, the HMS Bounty was used in “Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Man’s Chest”. It has also been featured in MGM’s “Mutiny on the Bounty” in 1962.
