Print Friendly

Retirees heading to Panama tend to find themselves with many types of communities to live in that suits their taste. More and more, however, they are choosing the “Playas” or beaches area of the central Pacific coastline. This area consists of three primary towns: Coronado, Gorgona, and San Carlos. Though retirees live up and down the coast in some other small towns as well, this is where you’ll find the largest concentration of expats, and the most infrastructure as far as residential developments, shopping, and food/drink/entertainment services. If you’re looking for a quiet, natural, upscale beach life that’s about an hour or so from Panama City, this may be your best bet. Here’s why.

Have you been thinking about investing in Panama? Good call. Panama has had an incredible ten years or so when it comes to foreign investment, and it’s still growing as we speak.

Panama City is a packed metropolis, known for its hustle and bustle, business center, and luxury residential, office, and hotel towers.

The islands are connected by a thin strip of land, and subsequent avenue that connects them with the city, and have a rich history and bright future ahead of them, all in one.
