We have the ability to offer you the best of both worlds as a Panama beach/city combo deal. You can read more about the city apartment on VRBO #330885. Our amazing beach villa and city apartment combo allows you to embrace all that each has to offer! The city apartment must be booked and scheduled at the same time as the beach villa. Ask us about booking your combo vacation. If you only want the beach villa, you can book it by the week or the month.
Our tropical beach villa is nestled in a lush tropical landscape for privacy and has a breath taking view from the private ocean facing front terrace. There is a shared infinity pool right outside the front door and it’s just a 100 meter stroll around the corner down a dirt road to the beach. It doesn’t get any better than this!
Gorgona has wonderful beaches and is one of the few places that you will see the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean. From the beach you can see the mountains and within a 30 minute car drive you can be looking down from one of the mountains to your beach. You will be centrally located to many quick day trip destinations that Panama has to offer, such as the Panama Canal, Panama Rain Forest, an exotic zoo in El Valle, Ferry ride to the island of Taboga, restaurants, surfing and exploring local towns. Nearby, you can check out a world class golf resort, spa, stables, hospitals, shopping, and grocery stores with a pharmacy, nearby mountains such as Altos or the El Valle volcano village with zip lines, zoo, hiking, rainforest tours and much more.
There are miles of beaches for walking or jogging. We will give you a tide chart with the highs and lows and you will be amazed at how much the beach changes each day. The temperature is perfect. It's not too hot and there is always a breeze throughout the day to keep you cool.
If you are staying at the villa for privacy and relaxation, you are in the right place, however if you are more adventurous and wanna hang-ten and get some action, we got’cha covered for that too. You are right on the Gorgona surf beach and 1 mile from the famous Malibu surf beach. Need kite surfing or surf lessons? We know some of the best surfing instructors around and can get that scheduled for you. Does a massage on the beach or on your private back terrace sound good? We have several reasonable priced package deals to include for your vacation to make it truly memorable.
The pricing for our villa includes all of the utilities as well as the electricity, so there are no additional fees after you check-out! We include a cell phone with a local phone number with some prepaid minutes to get you started or all you may need depending on your usage.

Needed to get away! Best week ever!
Needed to get away! Best week ever!
My wife and I were skeptical when choosing Gorgona as our destination because of some not so great reviews we read on some other condos. This said, I am not normally one to write a review but in this case I felt obligated to share our experience. We needed a break and to get away, from everything! We chose this condo because it seemed to offer everything we were looking for; and to our surprise and delight we found an affordable paradise! Our condo was great and the location couldn’t have been more perfect. We were close to the beach and much enjoyed our long walk on the beach during sunset… aboslutly amazing! Our experience was nothing short of fantastic as the condo was nice and clean, the air was fresh, beaches were clean, and the stores close by took care of our shopping fix. We enjoyed a few beers with some locals who were more than happy to show us around a little and recommend some really good places to eat. All in all this was exactly what we needed hope to be back soon to visit again. Thank you!

Bad beach vacation
Bad beach vacation
This villa is a nice property and we were very comfortable. We enjoyed having the kitchen and cooked much of our own local food. Our stay overlapped with NFL playoff games and were thrilled to have the flatscreen HD with ESPN. The owners provide a local cell phone which is essential because US cell phone services do not work except Blackberry. However, I need to point out that the villa is in Gorgona (not in Coronado as listed), which is one of the closest public beaches to Panama City and is frequented by locals who have no respect for the environment and throw their trash everywhere including streets, yards, and all over the beach. Gorgona offers no amenities at all. There are no beach chairs, shade umbrellas, shops or restaurants, or any places to get drinks and meals. You really should stay in Coronado which is a gated community, so locals do not litter the entire area with their garbage. Coronado offers more security and a choice of shopping and restaurants. We will not return to Panama, and certainly not Gorgona which is a garbage dump littered with diapers, beer cans, broken glass, and millions of plastic bags. It is appalling how the Panamanians treat their natural resources. I only offer this to sway people towards Coronado, if you are insistent on visiting Panama. Plan your vacation accordingly. We chose to end our stay early to spend an extra day in Panama City that offers reasonable rooms and inexpensive meals and trips along the canal. The owners will not refund your money if you leave early, as we did.

Owner response: Panama isn’t for everyone. If you come to Panama and expect it to be like the US or Canada then you have the wrong set of expectations, similar to our guests. Panama is a great place to visit and an even better place for investment. Read in our website “Inside Panama Real Estate” why Panama is a great place to live or invest. We came to Panama last fall to live and have since changed our careers to real estate and property mgt due to the high demand for Panama. We sold our house in TX where our property taxes were $10K/yr. Did you know that many properties in Panama are tax exempt up to 20 years? I’ll take a bumpy road and less city services i.e. trash pickup not to pay $10K/yr. It’s a give and take. Our 14 year old son in 9th grade at PCIS in Gorgona has several community service projects, such as trash pickup in the community. We are trying to make Panama a better place. For the record Gorgona is very safe and the Panamanians are friendly, helpful and embrace the fact we are here to spend money, create jobs and learn the Spanish language. This is their country. Gorgona and Coronado share the same beach and are next door. Like many countries, trash is a problem. It was that way in the states until the 80’s when trash dumping was illegal and a fine was imposed. We have another property in Gorgona and chose to advertise this one in Coronado to reach out to anyone not aware that Gorgona shares the same beach and rental prices may be less. There is nothing wrong with Gorgona, so whether you are looking to rent our place in Gorgona or someone else’s, Gorgona is just as good as Coronado, which has its own set of challenges from time to time that Gorgona doesn’t. We own in both towns, so it’s all good. I’m afraid that this review was a result of us not giving the guests a refund for their last day. They told us that they were leaving the day before check-out to be in the city close to the airport. I don’t know that VRBO owners would do a one night refund as we all schedule bookings based on availability and people can’t change their mind before leaving and expect a cash refund. I don’t know that the couple liked each other, Panama, the Panamanians, the Spanish language or culture. We met with them before they left for feedback and they seemed fine, so we were shocked by their written response based on their verbal response and all that we had done for them. You can’t make everyone happy. I am going to end this long response to take a nice walk on the beach.
