Coronado Beach Area in Panama


Back in the 1940s, Coronado was a handful of sleepy ranches speckled along an unspoiled stretch of Pacific beaches. Today, it is the hub of beach life in Panama, offering fantastic amenities and the infrastructure to match the unrivaled surrounding natural beauty. Given Coronado’s picture-perfect location and its status as the least rainy spot in Panama (three days of rain during the rainy season!), it’s no wonder that expats in the know from the U.S., Canada and Europe have decided to call Coronado home and even set up new businesses here — in town or right on the beach.

Why Live in Coronado?

Coronado today boasts three shopping malls, a buzzing restaurant and nightlife scene with top-notch international cuisine, excellent healthcare clinics and a hospital, and several international schools.

Best of all, Coronado is the closest beach town from Panama City. Hop on the Pan-American Highway and you’re there in an hour. And, once the Chorrera-San Carlos highway amplification project, the new Metro Line 3 and the new bridge over the Canal are all completed, new routes out of the city and a huge reduction in cars will make travel a real breeze. Hold your breath, it’s coming!

Once you’re there, you’ll see why living a year-round outdoor lifestyle is what Coronado is really all about. Think surfing, deep sea fishing, whale watching, stand-up paddling, kite-boarding and more — on land and at sea. Or, watch the sunset with literally the freshest ceviche in hand (and a cold beer to pair) along the string of beautiful beaches. For golf enthusiasts, Coronado also boasts four prime 18-hole courses, all set within luxury communities with club houses and amenities to match. And, if you’ve had enough of the beaches, Coronado is a great launchpad for day trips to nearby mountain retreats nestled amidst Panama’s tropical dry forests.
