It enjoys the driest climate in all of Panama. Roughly a 4-hour drive west from Panama City, Pedasi real estate retains its small town charm, despite the increasing pace of development of its downtown and beach areas. Residents enjoy a slower-paced lifestyle and need to go no further than Las Tablas, 30 minutes away, to find government offices, large supermarkets and of course Panama’s number one Carnaval celebration.
The Azuero Peninsula is mostly cattle land, with rolling hills of bright green grass that turn golden in the summer. It is not uncommon to see Brahman cattle being herded by ranchers on horseback down the highways from one pasture to the next. Within this pastoral environment, Pedasi real estate has the added attraction of being on the beach with access to world-class surfing, fishing and diving. Playa Venao and Isla Iguana, two of Panama’s top tourist destinations, are located here.
Currently the Panamanian government is investing massive amounts of money in the Azuero Peninsula. Infrastructure projects currently underway include widening the highway to 4 lanes from Divisa to Las Tablas and two new hospitals in La Villa de Los Santos and Pedasi.
Pedasi real estate sales have picked up steadily in the last 12 months. Having weathered a couple of tough years for the global economy, Pedasi is posed to come back strong. Recently several large investors have bought multi-million dollar pieces of beachfront land for development in Pedasi, including the group behind the Sheraton hotels in Panama. This will help give substance to Pedasi’s evolving development scene.
Pedasi is most commonly referred to Panama’s destination, from an eco-tourism perspective, with the most potential. It is also often mentioned in the same sentence as hotspots like Tamarindo or Manuel Antonio in Costa Rica thanks to its natural beauty, impressive array outdoor activities, and a comparatively tremendous infrastructure. That Pedasi embodies everything that is authentically Panamanian — from art to music to tradition — doesn’t hurt either. The past few years have seen Pedasi real estate and community develop on a slow but steady course: a stability which is unusual in the majority of this rapidly developing nation.
