In this Panama Special Report, we bring you the tranquil town of Pedasi.
In a golden corner of Panama’s Azuero Peninsula sits the town of Pedasi, often considered one of Panama’s most authentic and charming small towns. It’s a town with a village atmosphere—large enough to feel like you can live there, yet small enough to make you feel like an active stakeholder in a thriving community. Idyllic beaches of golden sand and fascinating rocky outcrops hold rock pools full of tropical life.
If you are looking for thumping nightlife and year- round parties, Pedasi is not for you. But as a wholesome place to bring up children, invest, retire, or go as a holiday destination, you won’t find a more authentic and genuine place in Panama.
Pedasi is located in Panama’s Los Santos Province, near another top destination, Las Tablas.

During the days of carnaval, thousands of people from every corner of the country dance to earsplitting music, while beautiful parade floats and elaborately dressed carnaval queens saunter down every major avenue of the country.

From the rugged but expat-popular Bocas del Toro islands in the far west to the colonial cities of Colón and Portobelo, the Caribbean options are few but varied. This report details Panama’s best options on the Caribbean…
