    The Los Angeles Times noted that many recent retirees "have been drawn to Panama by its low taxes, affordable housing, tropical climate and contemporany, bilingual entertainment." Panama has a stable government and a stable currency (pegged to the U.S. dollar since 1904). In other words, this country is the exception to the rule in Central America. As The Economist reported, in Central America " Panama has stood apart, sustained by its canal, banks, and free-trade zone." Panama is starting to get noticed by America's mainstream press: "Panama is the most beautiful retreat in the world and almost undiscovered", claimed Harper's Bazaar.
