Welcome to Playa Panama
. If your dream is to assimilate more into the local community you will find real estate in Playa Panama
may be your best option. It enjoys an international sophistication yet has been a favorite beach for locals where everyone from the interior go on Holidays to camp and enjoy the calm waters. In early 2002 camping was prohibted with the opening of the Four Seasons Hotel across the bay and the ground breaking of the Hacienda Del Mar Residential Community
but it is still a very popular beach for locals and tourists alike.
Panama Beach is rocky on the south and north end offering excellent snorkeling and in between, a long stretch of sandy beach with calm waters perfect for sun bathing and swimming. When storms come in off the Pacific Ocean boats from Playa Hermosa and Playas del Coco will seek refuge in this quiet protected bay where the waters where always calm. In 1999 when I operated the Spanish Dancer Sailing Charters i would pull my boat up on the beach in Playa Panama for bottom cleaning and repainting due to the calm conditions within the bay.
Well, a great deal has changed since that time with the building of the Four Seasons Papagayo Resort across the bay, the opening of the Occidental Allegro Papagayo Hotel and the Occidental Grand Hotel, and the recently added Hyatt Andaz and the new Mangroove Hotel. The Hilton as just changed hands and is now the Secrets Playa Bonita Papagayo Resort and Spa operated by AMResorts.
