Completed in November 2013, this brand new, luxury condo is located on the Pacific coast in one of the most sought after gated developments in all of Panama, Riomar. Riomar is a private community on a broad beach, with restaurant/bar, spa, sauna, and fitness room on the grounds. About an hour outside of Panama City, Riomar offers a spectacular ocean front location, in a relaxing, quiet environment.
The condo is luxuriously furnished with new, high quality furniture throughout the unit. In addition to central air throughout the unit, the unit has ceiling fans in every bedroom, living room, and on the deck, providing a cool, refreshing environment. The building concierge is available 24X7X365.
The living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and balcony offer spectacular views of the ocean. From the balcony, you can watch the sunrise in the morning over the Pacific Ocean, and set in the evening. From the two guest bedrooms you can see the oceans and the mountains. We thoughtfully stocked the kitchen with the same cooking utensils that we use in our home kitchen. This new luxury condo includes:
- Master Bedroom with King Bed (2 Sets of linens) - Master Bathroom / Walk-in Closet - Bedroom 2 with 1 Queen Bed (2 Sets of linens) - Bedroom 3 features 2 Twin Beds (2 Sets of linens/Bed) - Roller shades in Living Room, Dinning Room and Master Bedroom - Blackout Shades in Master Bedroom and Both Guest Bedrooms - New, Full Size LG Washer/Dryer in Unit - Collapsible Drying Rack in Utility Room - Bathing Suit Drying Line in Guest Bathroom - Cable TV in Living Room / Master Bedroom - High-speed Wireless Internet
We purchased our condo in the preconstruction stage and were able to make a few modifications to the plans that you will not find in the other units. There is a large walk-in closet in the master bedroom. We added pendant lights over the kitchen counter, and additional outlets in the living/dining area. Each of the bathrooms has an additional light in the shower for increased visibility as well as the standard vanity lights and ceiling light by the sink. We also paid to have the hot water heater rewired to support the largest on-demand unit we could find -- a 19 liter tank that allows you to use both showers at the same time! Finally, during our recent visit we upgraded the washer / dryer to a full size, energy efficient unit!
The manicured grounds include tropical gardens with 3 infinity pools and wading pool. The pool area includes a variety of deck chairs, lounge chairs, tables, as well as shaded lounge seating. The fitness center is equipped with a variety of professional exercise machines. While at the pool or gym, you can stay connected on the wireless internet that is available. The spa offers top-notch masseuses, jacuzzi, mineral bath, and sauna. For the kids, there is playground equipment and a trampoline available next to the pool.
Playa el Palmar, one of Panama’s most famous surfing communities is only five minutes away. In Palmar you can rent surfboards, take lessons from great teachers, enjoy the surf and relax from one of the beach side bars/restaurants. In Coronado (10K Away) you can find a number of great restaurants, four grocery stores (Riba Smith caters to expats), and a 24-hour hospital / medical clinic.

Year Purchased: 2013
About: We live in Washington, DC area. We have been travelling to central America for over 10 years looking for our perfect future retirement getaway.
Why San Carlos: We chose Riomar because of the serene setting, quiet beauty, and amazing beaches. In addition, the condo is located in the dry arch, an area that gets less rain than other comparable areas in Panama--more time to enjoy the sun.
In addition, Copa airlines (United Partner) offers direct flights from many North American cities (including Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, NYC, Orlando, Tampa, Toronto, Washington, DC, etc.) making travel to Riomar extremely easy and affordable.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: At low tide you can walk for miles on the beaches. From our condo, you can hear the ocean waves breaking on the shore, and see the most spectacular sunrise over the Pacific ocean. At night you can open the windows in bedrooms, and enjoy an amazing breeze from the mountains.
