Pedasí is often considered one of Panama’s most authentic and charming small towns. Located right at the southeast corner of the peninsula, Pedasí is within a few minutes of numerous white-sand beaches and rocky headlands, with numerous sandy coves and hidden coastal delights nearby.
Pedasí caters day-to-day needs with small and medium sized supermarkets, two bakeries, and a dulceria (Dulceria Yely, a well-known sweets and cake shop), several restaurants, bed and breakfasts, and hotels. The region is primarily agricultural, and it is possible to find high-quality fresh produce. In addition, Pedasí has a public health clinic, two banks, a public library, and a small shop selling surf and beach wear.
