One reason we chose Boquete over Eleuthera Bahamas...was hurricanes.

  Through an advertisement in Surfer magazine we paid $1,500.00 for a lot on the island of Eleuthera  in 1980.  We sold it for $20,000.00 in 2007 just before we settled here in Boquete.  If you look due west of that huge red dot of a hurricane.....that is Eleuthera .   Seriously bad there now.

Constantly increasing hurricane insurance costs encouraged me to sell my interest in a condo in Hilton Head, South Carolina a few years ago.

Hurricane coverage is just another expense, such as HVAC, that isn't required to live in or around Boquete.

Cost of living near a coast.  Yes.  We lived our adult life on Oahu Hawaii.   Maintenance fees for our 850 sq ft condo were $700/month.  Old building, flood zone. These fees are so high because of insurance and reserve funds necessary to  sustain through all eventualities.  This was a huge reason for us looking for another location to live in retirement.   Thank goodness we gave up on our dream for a surf hut on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas !.

Second Red Cross aid plane leaves Panama for Bahamas


osted 07/09/2019

A second  Red Cross plane loaded with humanitarian aid for the hurricane-stricken Bahamas, left Tocumen International on Saturday afternoon, September, 7.

Hurricane Dorian has left 70,000 people homeless and at least 43 dead by noon on Saturday. Hundreds are still missing and the eventual death toll is forecast to be “catastrophic."

"Bringing help to people in need is our number one priority. We are trying our best to get to hard-to-reach places," said the federation, whose headquarters for Latin America is located in Panama.
