Playa Coronado cottage description
Costa Grande is located in the Coronado area, on the Gorgona beach. The Coronado and Gorgona beaches are next to each other. Our Gorgona beach has the local fish cooperative, where you can buy great, fresh fish for $.75 to $2 per pound, take a swim and fix the fish in our large kitchen and BBQ. We have both an adult and child's swimming pool.
We can provide or arrange for transportation from the airport.
We can add the use of our mountain retreat to your package, if you would like.
The owners and visitors are from all over the world, with several local Panamanian families, much like the colorful town of Gorgona where it is located. This is not a tourist only community!
Our Casita has some wonderful local art, including a full wall mural featuring water and colorful birds.
Our unit has a larger living room, kitchen and terrazzo than the other available rentals in the complex. You will love cooking the fish you buy at the local fish co-op on the gas Bar-B-Que on the terrazzo.
We have taken great care to create adequate storage spaces in the furniture. We live in this unit 6 months each year, so it is equipped with everything one would need.
Each room has both a split A/C unit and a ceiling fan for complete comfort.

Costa Grande Condo
Costa Grande Condo
John and Jane were great to work with. We were the first renters of thier brand new 2nd story addition. The large kitchen window, which we left open round the clock, framed the Pacific perfectly. About a five minute walk to the beach. When the tide was about we walked a good four miles where the mansions meet the sea. Our favorite beach for excellent boogie boarding (boards provided) was about a nine dollar cab ride thru Coronado and to BayView. We spent two days in the surf and had a few Balboas (cerveza) at the hotel resaurant there. Just excellent. Patio, outdoor showers by the pool. Very inviting. If you go, ask John and Jane to introduce you to Iris. She is a block away and will cook for you, either to take out, or she will cook in your unit. Speaks English too. La Ruina in Gorgona is a fun restaurant owned by an American with a Panamanian wife. Go there. We cabbed and were offfered rides by people who were vactioning in the unit next door, but I would recommend having a car. Met some nice people in the complex. Had margaritas by the pool late one night. The cat who lives next door visited very day, friendly little guy.

Home Away From Home
Home Away From Home
We have stayed at the Mango Villa in Costa Grande several times over the last 5 years. It has become to feel like home away from home and we highly recommend it to all looking for a beach get away in Panama. For our family, many of the modern amenities contributed to our comfort during our long stay; The air conditioners in each room, the wi-fi for our laptops and the fully appointed kitchen and living/dining area were set up for a relaxing stay. The pool was a few short steps away and looked right out onto the beach. Each bedroom had storage shelves under the beds, so there was ample space for our 'stuff'. And speaking of modern amenities, the grocery store and restaurants were about 10 minutes away. There was even an organic grocery store with gluten free items in the new mall area. After a daily walk on the beach (one block away), we'd settle in and enjoy our fresh fish (fishing village right on the beach) and Panama produce. We will be back!

About: We are a young retired couple (67), who have live in Seattle during the sunny months so that we can see our 5 grandchildren. We love to travel. We recently travelled to Norway, Sweden and France. Last year we did exchanges in Australia. John swims a mile or so each day in the Ocean, when in Panama, and loves to play water polo. Jayne loves to walk on the beach. We are developing an intergenerational community. See www.panamacohousingvillage.com
