A Perfect day in the Neighborhood: Coronado, Panama

Coronado Beach

The Beach of Coronado

The beach community in Coronado, Panama is a mixture of Panamanians and Ex Pats that enjoy the beauty of Panama’s Pacific Beaches while being a part of the most established beach development in Panama adorned with incredible amenities.  The real estate in Coronado ranges from multi-million dollar mansions to some incredibly affordable beach condos and homes.

A typical day in Coronado starts with a morning walk along the beach as the sun rises to the East and the sky changes from dark, to orangey reds and pinks, to bright blue. Walking along the beach it looks almost as if you’re in Hawaii with the gorgeous mountains past Malibu Beach in the backdrop. Stroll along million dollar mansions, luxury condo buildings, beach clubs, and more as you journey back to your newly built condo in the Coronado Bay Towers.

You and your neighbor/friend head next door to the hotel Solarium for breakfast and coffee. While dining seaside, many of your friends from the Coronado golf and beach resort club walk by and ask you to join them for the afternoon tennis match. Because many of the full time ex pats living in Coronado are retirees or part time retirees, the social agenda for activities is through the roof. You happily accept and go on with your day.

The Coronado Golf and Beach Resort is a great place to spend your day golfing, playing tennis, hanging by the pool relaxing, or taking the trolley to the Private Beach Club and hanging at the beach. For a yearly fee you are able to indulge in all the exciting activities on the resort and have a fun, relaxing, and healthy lifestyle.

Late afternoon you walk over, meet your friends, and play a few games of tennis on the beautiful courts next to the 18-hole golf course while taking in the sunset.

Everyone journeys home to shower and rendezvous at Cholo’s Mexican Restaurant along the Inter American Highway right next to the Coronado Turn Off. Because it’s Thursday and the Promotion of $1 fish taco and 50 cent beers is on, everyone sits around the open air restaurant for a fun and low cost evening.

    Its great to get out of Panama City every once and a while and spend a long weekend around Coronado. Sometimes we enjoy hanging out around Santa Clara – all the towns have there own unique set positive/negative traits. I wish it we're a bit closer to the city but it's definitely worth the hour drive.

      Absolutely, Coronado is a very different place than Santa Clara, there is a lot of diversity within the beach communities. For anyone that is interested Coronado is tranquil BUT is a large development that has been built over the past ~30 years. It has everything you could ask for and is an especially popular place on the weekends and holidays. A community like Santa Clara however is much more laid back. There is very little development (a large development is coming soon however) and it is very tranquil BUT you'll have to jump in the car and go for a bit of a ride if you run out of eggs :)
