    Hello, awesome people.

    Any generic info on living and working in Panama?

    Is 4000 USD a reasonable salary per month?(net)

    1 person working and a non teaching spouse. Could one expect a moderate lifestyle on that salary in Panama City?

    Never been to Central America so do not have a clue.

    Central America consists 7 or 8 different countries and while homogeneous in some respects they are very different in others - i.e. economically and socially. Panama is basically a US creation, the region was taken from Colombia to give the US control of the canal zone. This makes it very American in feel, as do the large numbers of retirees there. I only visited some years ago but I quite liked it, it was not cheap and some of the schools do not have great reputation.

    In terms of travel: Costa Rica is nearby and is superb. Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala are - interesting? Even the old UK colony of Belize has its moments.

    No it is not cheap, but looks like a good quality of life and an amazing location.
