Puerto Armuelles is a typical coastal town that is about to pull itself out of the mire. Do some research on the net and you will see that it will be hotting up very soon. The town has all the amenities that one needs and the prices of real estate haven’t escalated too much yet. We have a hospital, with a new one under construction, a Romero supermarket, various banks and numerous variety stores. We are about 30 minutes from the border and an hour and a half or less to David the major city of Chiriquí.

The property is situated approximately 5km out of Puerto in the barrio called Coronado, just along from Corazon de Jesus. If you like the ocean, you can do as I do, take your morning coffee on the beach watching the sun rise all by yourself. It’s still relatively quiet out here with the occasional fishing boat pulling in or the expats from Corazon de Jesus or Cucuyi enjoying their early morning stroll. Or you can jog the beach or surf the waves if you are healthy enough.

The only stipulation that will be written into the contract is that the leases that are in place will need to be respected.
