Anyone have experience purchasing an inexpensive car to accomodate a 6 month temporary relocation in any part of Panama? If one was going to contemplate permanent expatriation to Panama, and play it smart and relocate for 6 months and explore, even the rental of an ecomomy car would be too high an expense. How about some advise on how to buy a reasonably priced used car, and what parts of the country would offer the best deals. Is insurance mandatory to take title to a vehicle in Panama or does money talk? If you decided to head back home, you could sell it to a friend for a song.
