The rarest bird in the world? this and more

Our hottest story is on local rare bird, named the Maria Vega. This albino, Rufous Collared Sparrow, is rare, extremely rare – in fact we have pictures of the only known bird to exist.

Bocas Del Toro is Panama’s answer to Belize’s Ambergris Cay. The developments here have been mired in scams and failed developments for years. Fortunately, a new high-end development called Sunset Point is doing things right. This project will have the largest marina in the area and will become the standard to which all other project will hopefully aspire.

Michael Boase is a motivational speaker from Britain, now living near the western Panama city of David. We will be featuring articles from Michael in the next issues of NEWSLETTER. In these troubling times any help we can get in dealing with stress must be beneficial.

One of the most frequently asked questions we get at is about the costs and quality of health care in Panama. This week we signed up for a health plan at David’s leading private hospital. If you had considered retiring to Panama but health concerns have stopped you – please read this article. We believe the costs are amazingly low and the quality of the doctors and equipment? In our mind’s they are truly first world.
