Panama = NO Hurricanes.
It’s one of the top reasons ex-pats from the East Coast relocate from the US to Panama. In comparison, in the year 2004-2005, Florida endured hurricane Wilma, causing $29.2 billion in damage, Charley, resulting in $18.2 billion in damage, Ivan which was $18.1 billion in damage, Frances, which generated $10.4 billion in damage, Jeanne, ended up costing $8.0 billion in damage. In fact, just in September 2004 alone, Florida was whacked by both Frances and Jeanne.
Fortunately, Panama is safely located out of harm’s way from any hurricanes. When it comes to Panama weather, just say NO! NO Hurricanes, NO Snow, NO Blizzards, NO Sleet, NO Hail, NO Freezing Temperatures, NO Ice except in our margarita glasses.
