Family Leaves Florida Comfort for a New Language and Culture in Panama City, Panama

Marc and Lisa have a beautiful home in Florida where Marc has his own dental practice. They know their life is good but perhaps too easy for daughter Skyla and her brother Brock. So Marc and Lisa have decided that now is the time for their kids to experience a very new environment and learn a new language. A second language will be an asset as they grow up, travel and meet new people in new cultures. They will move to Panama, a Spanish speaking destination in close proximity to Florida. Marc will retain his practice and commute each week to join the family. Marc's travel coupled with the cost of supporting two households means money will be tight and that means giving up some of the comfort and convenience of their Florida life. Lisa has concerns that the transition may be too much for her children. She and Marc clash over the cost benefit of a high rise condo versus a more costly single family home as their house hunt becomes a duel between budget and family comfort in Panama City, Panama.
