Gorgona is one of the most visited beaches due to its close proximity to the city. The beachfront in Gorgona is a mix of white and volcanic sand, and the various stretches of beaches go on for miles. Add to this mix, palm trees, and a tropical climate with temperatures typically varying between 80 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer seems to never end. Gorgona is an easy drive from Panama city and is located 10 minutes from the well known area of Coronado. Coronado offers amenities that include a full scale 24 hour supermarket, pharmacies, restaurants of every type and price range, with some of the best food around, world class golf courses, medical clinics and out door markets.
The climate in Panama is tropical and there are two seasons, wet and dry. The dry season is considered Panama's summertime, and lasts from January through March. The rainy season or what is considered Panama's winter, goes from April to December. During the wet season it does not mean that rain lasts nonstop for days, but that almost each day there is some rain. What you will see is a huge black cloud approach, a downpour of rain followed by sunshine.
The Panama Canal is central to world trade. The country has much to offer with beaches, mountains, temperate climates, Rainforest and world history. There is much to explore.

We just finished a 6 week stay in this condominium in this condo. In short, we felt spoiled. We found our condo to be superbly appointed, with special touches that makes it obvious the owners had made some very thoughtful decisions aimed at making the renter's stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. As a small example, we were supplied with 2 sets of keys at the outset, and a binder had been made with all sorts of pertinent information about the unit and the town. In terms of appliances and equipment, our condo has a gas stove (absolutely love it - now feel spoiled), ice cube maker in the fridge (we went through LOTS of ice), dishwasher, washer and dryer (large units), and very high quality cooking and baking materiel, cutlery, plate settings, cutting knife sets and many handy kitchen gadgets - all there. The kitchen has ample cabinetry, including a deep floor to ceiling pantry that we could never hope to fill. The living area is large and well decorated and has high quality furnishings, as well as a large screen flat wall-mounted TV, DVD, cable box, wireless Internet, two overhead fan/lights, dining table and chairs. The balcony, aside from its terrific view of the grounds and beach, is equipped with an overhead fan (for when the evening breeze fails) and one of the finest propane barbecue I've ever used. An outdoor table and chairs completes the picture (we ate almost every evening meal here, with surf sounds and stars). The bedroom is also large, and equally well furnished - a kingsize bed, dressers, end-table and lights, walk-in closet, a programmable wall-secured safe, extra sets of sheets, pillows, bath towels, beach towels, and a second large screen wall-mounted TV and DVD. The bathroom is small, only in comparison to the ample porportions of the other rooms. Even this had some nice touches, including a motion-activated strong nightlight (at our age, this goes from luxury to necessity, but it is thoughtful nevertheless), a dual flush toilet and a strong bathing suit drying rack - in constant use in our case. Both the living area and bedroom each contained powerful floor standing dehumidifiers, with water vented through the outside wall, so there was no need to constantly empty coll

A Month In Paradise
A Month In Paradise
My husband and I recently rented this condo for a month and could not have been happier. We have vacationed in Panama 4 or 5 times and knew the general area. You are literally "on the beach" and can enjoy listening to the waves. We took many long walks on the beach and some through the neighborhood. The Gorgona fish market is about a 10 or 15 minute walk down the beach where you can purchase a fresh catch (and ask them to clean the fish for an extra dollar!). La Ruina is a fun restraurant you can walk to and is open Thursday to Sunday. Make sure to ask for the "tour". The condo is a very large spacious one bedroom supplied with all the comforts of home. Being able to barbeque on the balcony was a bonus, especially grilling our "fresh catch of the day" from the Gorgona fish market! The social area and pool are a nice place to visit with other renters and owners. We met several nice people and enjoyed a couple dinners out with our new friends. Also a nice place to exchange information and get a shopping, sight seeing, or restraurant tip! We both recommend this as a vacation destination. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners who happened to be vactioning at the same time. They make sure everything is in good working order and continue to give the unit TLC to ensure it is ready for the next guest to ENJOY!!!

Home away from home.
Home away from home.
So often rental properties aren't exactly as they claim to be. In this case, NOT SO! Everything was as the description said it was. Steve and Dianne have made this unit not a rental unit but your home away from home. They have taken great care in furnishing this unit as to making sure you want for nothing. They will answer any questions about the unit or area honestly. I would not hesitate in recommending Steve's unit and the Play Serena to any of my friends who want a relaxing holiday with plenty of sunshine.

Spectactular and Amazing
Spectactular and Amazing
Our trip began as a 1 week get-away to the beaches of Panama. (Beat the winter chill of Arkansas) We soon found out that one week was not going to be enough. We are water lovers, so we make many get-aways to lakes and beaches. We have agreed unanimously that this stay was the best of all...ever!!! If you love beaches, you will soon discover why we say this, should you decide to visit. There are two tides per day. High tide was within 50' of our balcony and low tide was about 300'. That's awesome!! Because of such dramatic tides you will wake up to a different beach view everyday...and be the first to leave your foot prints in the sand. And speaking of sand, it's black, it's gray, it's white, it's splotchy, it's striped, it's a sight to behold. The black sand areas glitter with what appears to be diamonds. There's as much glitter as the is black. The listing is real, if anything, even better. The condo was well equipped with everything we needed...and we cook. We had several romantic dinners on our balcony while relaxing to the sites and sounds of the ocean. No airplanes flying over with banners"Eat at Joes" No distractions with crowds performing daily activities, just good ole relaxing contintment with ocean pleasures. The owners of this condo are great and very helpfull. You get a since of that by there listing. They even had great beach towels for us in the condo. That's a first...after many beach condo visits. In the condo was a welcome book with info that was very helpfull. We eat at many fine restaurants: Los Camarones, Bay View Pal Mar(on the beach) The Gorgona area is great with everything you need close by. We highly recomend the area, the owners and the Playa Serrena. We had an incredible time!

Year Purchased: 2007
About: A Canadian Couple: Steve and Dianne. My wife and I are a Canadian couple who travelled to Panama in late 2006. We decided to travel to Panama because I had lived in Panama City as a child, had fond memories of the country and culture and wanted to share this history with my wife. Although English is spoken throughout the country, I resurrected what I could remember of my Spanish and put it into practice as we toured around. Not only did we have a memorable trip but we decided to make Panama our home during the winter months when we retired, even though retirement was some years away. As luck would have it, shortly after our departure from Panama we became aware of the Playa Serena Residential Resort Project, which was just getting underway with release of the first phase of the project. We were interested in the low rise beach front apartments. We decided to purchase two ocean front apartments in February 2007. In December 2008 we visited the construction site and, in the picture we are standing on the spot where the low rise building was to be constructed. We will be coming to this special getaway a few times a year, but we also wished to create an apartment that would be welcoming and offer a beachfront experience with a resort environment for others from around the world to experience this wonderful setting and everything Panama has to offer. We hope you will come and visit and that your getaway with us will be as special as we believe it should be, one that you will cherish and that you will keep coming back!
