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.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you Panama’s Pearl Islands.
The islands—the uninhabited ones, at least—are coated in a blanket of thick tropical marine forest with some areas of rare mangrove. This forest, together with rugged topography, cliffs, and rocky headlands, gives the islands a Jurassic Park feel. Innumerable sea birds wheel and dive around the cliffs, and dense tropical foliage hangs over the water, creating a wall of green that encases the beaches.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you our top pick for beach living in Panama: Las Tablas.
Located on the Azuero Peninsula, Las Tablas is the first town of note along what is becoming this country’s Gold Coast. The charming city is well-known even beyond Panama for it’s yearly Carnival festival.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you a closer look at the District of Chame and its most popular town, Punta Chame, which—in high season—draws beach-goers of all stripes, from surfers, kite-surfers, sport-fishermen, extreme sport-lovers, etc.
While it shares the same stretch of coastline as expat hot spot Coronado (which has seen major development over the past decade), Chame remains largely undiscovered, unpenetrated, and underrated.
Located in the Panamá Oeste Province, Chame comprises 11 small towns that sprawl out along the Panamerican Highway. On the hour-and-a-half drive it takes to reach the area from Panama City, you pass national parks, sleepy hamlets, mountains, and mangrove forests before finally arriving at the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean.
Balboa, La Boca, and Amador Causeway, Panama City, Panama
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you the areas of Balboa, La Boca, and Amador Causeway, all located within Panama City.
Only a few miles away from the hustle and bustle, the bright lights, and the hectic honking of cab horns, brings you to what used to be considered the Canal Zone. You know you’ve entered this area when on one side you see multicolored storage containers stacked one on top of the other, like a Lego village, while on the opposite side of the street you see boxy, tan-colored old military barracks and government buildings.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you the town of La Villa De Los Santos, located in the country’s Los Santos province.
