Jessica says El Valle is lush, beautiful, and close to everything, and that Michael likes it because operating and living costs are a fraction of what they are in Panama City. There's much more to like about El Valle, and Jessica Ramesch tells you all about it in her April 19 postcard.April 20 -- Latin America Editor Suzan Haskins begins her reporting from our recent Live & Invest in Panama conference in Panama City.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg... Suzan spells it all out in her April 20 postcard.April 21 -- Suzan Haskins drills down into the presentations during the second day of our Live & Invest in Panama conference to cover the nitty-gritty details that can make or break your experience in Panama, including thought from former Congressman Robert Bauman on Panama's value as a financial and personal privacy haven and inside info from Pathfinder Real Estate's Margaret Summerfield on what NOT to buy in Panama. Much more in Suzan's April 21 postcard.April 22 -- Suzan Haskins fills us in on the third and final day of the Live & Invest in Panama conference, and if you think that International Living paints only rosy pictures or only tells you about the opportunities and goody-goody side of expat life, think again. Suzan highlights presentations that could be describes as Panama Exposed and Uncensored... you just have to read them for yourself to see why... it's all in Suzan's April 22 postcard.April 23 -- I take pen in hand to give you my thoughts as we closed out our most successful Live & Invest in Panama conference to date. I've emceed many International Living events, and I came away from this one with a new appreciation of the many ways that Panama makes expats welcome in almost every way... and hearing about it straight from expats currently living there really showed why. I'll give you the details in my April 23 postcard.Sign up for all these postcards and more for free here: and don't forget to visit the International Living Facebook page.
