Own On Panama's Most Beautiful Pacific Beach For As Little As US$35,000, Zero Down, Zero Percent Interest

May 9, 2011, Los Islotes, Panama: Toucan Forest, Los Islotes, is the most affordable full-amenity private Pacific coast beach community opportunity anywhere in Panama

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Full disclosure: This is something of a family offering, as the opportunity I'd like to put on the table today is the vision of my husband, Lief Simon, and two friends.

I've told you before about Lief's current occupation in Panama. With the help of two partners, Lief is developing 300 hectares (750 acres) of coastal property in the Veraguas Province of Panama, on the western coast of the Azuero Peninsula. The community is called "Los Islotes" (named for the three small islands just offshore).

For the past several months, Lief and his partners have worked to design a new section of home lots at Los Islotes intended for a small budget. And these bargain-priced lots come with financing.

This phase of Los Islotes, recently released, is called Toucan Forest. This small section of 19 lots is perfect if you're looking for privacy within a gated community. Most of the lots in Toucan Forest are heavily wooded, giving you the feel that you are in the jungle. All around are mango, cashew, and passion fruit trees, attracting an abundance of wildlife, including howler monkeys and toucans. Yet you are only steps away from the full range of planned Los Islotes amenities and just a few minutes from the property's beautiful Pacific beaches.

As an owner at Toucan Forest, you will have full access to the Clubhouse and a nearby private pool where you'll be able to take in the ocean views while cooling off or soaking up the sun anytime you like. From the Clubhouse, it'll be just a short walk down to the estuary where you could launch a kayak or small boat for fun or fishing on the sea.

And, again, you're only minutes from the beach.

As I explained, Toucan Forest has been designed for those whose budget is small but who still want to be part of a fully master-planned ocean-side community with extensive amenities and services plus beach access. Lot prices for this new phase of Los Islotes start at US$35,000. You won't find more affordable lots with the same level of infrastructure and amenities anywhere in Panama and certainly nowhere else on this Azuero Sunset Coast.

In addition, again, this new phase of lots is being offered with financing. You can own now in Toucan Forest with zero down and no interest for 60 months. Take advantage of this financing offer today, and you can own with monthly payments as low as US$583.33.

I'll say one more time: This is the most affordable private beach community opportunity available anywhere in Panama.

P.S. Over the 18 years he's been investing in real estate around the world, Lief Simon has tromped a lot of stretches of beach, from Nicaragua to Belize, from Uruguay to Ecuador, from the southern coast of France to the southern coast of Spain, from Turkey to Vietnam, from Thailand to Down Under, and on and on.

Three years ago, he identified this west coast of Panama's Azuero Peninsula as something special.

In addition, and of critical importance, Los Islotes is in Panama. Looking at the world map, Panama stands out as one of the top places to be focusing your time, attention, and money right now. You know how bullish I am on Panama in general, so I won't belabor the point now. I'll say only that, the longer I'm here on the ground, the more convinced I am that, when Lief and I committed our attention and resources to this country three years ago, we made a smart move.

Look closely at Panama, and you see a clear path of progress. Pacific coastal property in this country has been developed (and, therefore, has appreciated in value) starting from just outside the capital city and moving westward. The Azuero Peninsula sits directly in this path. When Lief set out three years ago to find The Next Big Thing In Panama, he focused my search on this peninsula for this reason.

The western coast of this Azuero Peninsula, specifically, has two more things going for it. First, it's one of the few places in the country from which you can watch the sun set over the ocean.

Second, the west coast of the Azuero Peninsula sits in Veraguas Province. Current President Ricardo Martinelli hails from Veraguas. I believe all Panama is going to continue to benefit from Martinelli's time in office, including and especially the folks in Veraguas, his home province.
