I have spent 8 days in Panama looking for the perfect place to Retire. The jury is still out on whether or not it Is Panama. With that said, I would come back to Manglar Lodge in a heart beat! As has been said many times, you can't beat the hospitality and graciousness of Ivan the owner. I felt at home immediately. I echo all the accolades that have been afore mentioned! I have been to Panama City, Chitre, David & Boquete and Ivan and his place is a must on my return trip. Ivan did suggest I go to El Valle to see if that would be a retirement place to consider. It most certainly is. It is about 30 km or so from the Manglar Lodge. It is in the mountains and on an extent Volcano. I haven't totally vetted the place yet but it is beautiful - the best place I have seen in Panama. However, it looks like the place where the rich live. The weather is perfect. The humidity seems not existent. It is a place for me to consider & it is only a couple hours out of PC.
