Pedasi house description

If you want a beautiful home with an amazing location, beautiful view, directly on the beach...this is the home for you.

If you want to experience Panama and remote beach life with a fantastic beach break, then this home is for you.

BUT REMEMBER, this home is in a remote beach 6 hours from the closest international airport. It is almost the last point on the road before a national park. The home will be clean but it may have some dust due to the strong winds in the dry season. You may find a dead (or live) crab in the pool in the morning.

This home will totally relax you IF you let go of all expectations, requirements or comparisons. This setting is magical if you can stop worrying about the small things and really ENJOY LIFE.

If you are not able go with the flow when you may experience a power outage or the satellite tv service has been disrupted, then you also may miss:

- that amazing surfer catch a wild ride
- a sea turtle wander up to the back yard
- the sounds of monkeys in the trees every morning
- your kids setting up a bonfire on the beach
- a living sand dollar trying to rebury itself
- the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see

I could go on.

The point is if you need comfort, blandness and pampering stay at a 5 star hotel room in the city.

If you want adventure, color and REAL LIVING in Panama then you will LOVE the house.


The home is on the best surfing beach in the region, Playa Venao. Walk right out the back terrace onto a white sand beach filled with wildlife and the best surf to catch a wave.

This home offers luxury accommodations in a beautiful ocean side setting. This amazing private home is located directly on the beach in Playa Venao, 20 minutes past the town of Pedasi and located on one of the best surfing beaches in all of Panama.

For relaxation, hear the sounds of birds chirping, surfs rolling, breezes rustling through palms with an occasional howl of a monkey in the distance.

For Adventure, the area offers world class fishing, surfing, diving and snorkeling.

ACTIVITIES
Deep Sea Fishing: Due to the proximity of the continental shelf, this area hosts some of the best deep-sea fishing in the world, just minutes away from Pedasi.

Surfing: The Pedasi area boasts some of the best surfing in Central America. This beach has hosted international and national surf competitions for some of the best surfers in the world. But surfing isn't limited to the pros. This beach is a great opportunity for new surfers (kids included) and mid-level surfers to brush up on their skills.

Whale Watching: From July through September, you will encounter Humpback Whales migrating from South America to the warmer waters of the tropics. Further out to sea during the months of January to April pods of Orcas are sometimes spotted.

Isla (Island) Iguana: Only 4 miles off the coast of Pedasi, or 20 minute boat ride, you will find Isla Iguana Wildlife Refuge, a 150 acre wildlife reserve. Isla Iguana has crystal clear waters and a beautiful white sand beach. In addition to swimming and snorkeling , the island is habitat to many types of crabs, black and green iguanas and red throated frigates. It is a vital nesting ground for several species of frigates as well as sea turtles. Bring a picnic lunch and refreshments and have a relaxing morning or afternoon on this beautiful tropical paradise.

Diving and Snorkeling: The area hosts some of the top scuba diving spots in Panama, including Isla Iguana National Park, a pristine white sand beach as well as a seagull and dolphin sanctuary. For the leisure snorkler, Achotines Bay provides 150 species of fish, and hosts the largest coral reef in the oriental mainland coast of the Americas.

Turtle Nesting: During the months of September to November, something incredible happens in neighboring Isla Cañas; thousands of female sea turtles come here to nest. The young of the hawksbill, green, loggerhead and sometimes leatherback turtles will hatch from the hundreds of laid eggs and their instinct will lead them to the sea. Tours are available.

International Tuna Commission Lab: Nearby Achotines Bay is also home to the International Tuna Commission lab, which has the world's only aquarium with live tunas. It maintains a 1,000 acre natural forest reserve where it raises and studies Yellow Fin Tuna from embryos to maturing to 150 lb where they are released into the bay. Private tours may be arranged by our Houseman, Erick.

Reforestation and Native Species: Headed by the Smithsonian Institute and the Yale University School of Forestry, the Azueros development has a privately-funded reforestation project with native plant species. Learn about the dozens of hardwood plants that are endemic to the region, and the scientific methods used to replant them.

Carnivals and Festivals: The Azuero Peninsula is the center of Panamanian folklore, including the national dress, the pollera, the national music, the cumbia, and many other traditions inherited from Spain. During summer, visitors can enjoy the world famous carnivals in Pedasí and Las Tablas, where beauty queens battle for people's support, as hundreds of thousands watch and enjoy week-long festivities dancing on the streets.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the weather like? We are located only about 10 degrees above the equator and blessed with warm temperatures all year round with the average temperature of about 78F (26C). The average high temperature averages normally between 88F (31C) and 92 (33C) and average low temperature averaging between 68F-72F (20C-22C) . Important: DO NOT LOOK at weather information from Panama City, which is where most weather is reported from. This home s located in a 'Tropical Dry Forrest' whereas Panama City is located in a 'Tropical Rain Forrest'. The Azuero Peninsula is the driest region of Panama and is made up of a Dry Season and a Green (Rainy) Season. Even in the 'Green' season, rains in Azuero are normally intermittent and most days have plenty of sunshine. Naturally, there are transitions from one season to the other that may be a mixture of the two seasons.

Dry Season - December to May

* High Temperatures - Low 90's
* Low Temperatures - Low to mid 70's
* Rainfall - Virtually none, particularly from December through April
* Breezes - Almost constant breezes from the NE particularly from December through April
* Humidity - Not exactly sure, but less humid that Rainy Season
* Sunshine - Abundant, nearly constant
* Landscape - Golden Brown 'savannah like'

Green Season - June to November

* High Temperatures - Upper 80's
* Low Temperatures - Upper 60's to low 70's
* Rainfall - Rains are normally intermittent, peaking in September and October
* Breezes - Normally late morning through early evening from the SW
* Humidity - Not sure, but high humidity during this season
* Sunshine - Mixture, but most days have sunshine
* Landscape - Lush Green 'Tuscan like'

How close is sport fishing? There are several options within 15 - 30 minutes of the Villa.

Do Hurricanes impact Panama? No - Due to its position near the equator, there have been no recorded hurricanes in Panama. Sometimes, tropical systems can cause a lot of rain/flooding in some areas of Panama, but this is not typical in the area of the home, which is the driest region of Panama.

Which Airlines Fly to Panama? You will first arrive in Tocumen International Airport in Panama City which offers excellent connections from the U.S. from Miami, Orlando, Houston, Newark, New York, Washington DC, Dallas, Atlanta and Los Angeles with American Airlines, Delta and Continental. Panama offers direct flights from Europe from Amsterdam through KLM Airlines. There are also local flights from Panama City to Pedasi.

Are taxis readily available? How do we get around on our own? Taxis are available a few miles away from Pedasi and will pick up and deliver to the home.

Are mosquitoes and other pests a problem? Being a Tropical Dry Forrest, there is virtually no standing water during the dry season of Dec through May and we do not have much of the pests such as snakes, etc., that you will find in the tropical jungle areas. The 'No Seeums' occassionally are encountered but and seem to be selective as to whom they target.

I have heard about frequent Electrial Outages in places like Costa Rica. What is the reliability in Panama? Panama is well ahead of Costa Rica and other countries in Central American in almost all areas of infrastructure including roads, telecommunications, power delivery, water delivery, security and transportation services. Electric reliability is still not equal to the U.S. or Europe and outages sometimes do occur. They typically do not last long, but can be annoying. HOWEVER, we have installed state of the art backup generator to insure that there are minimal disruptions of either during your visit.

How much money should I bring? Bank's and ATM's are readily available in nearly all towns in mainland Panama, so 2-3 days of cash is plenty upon arrival. Credit Cards such as VISA and Mastercard are generally accepted in most restaurants, nearly all hotels and many gas stations and convenience stores. If you explore some of the Islands or plan to visit or drive into remote areas, then it is a good idea to have some extra cash and keep the gas tank topped off.

How expensive is traveling in Panama? If you are coming from the U.S. or Europe, you will find local food, beverage and services to be very inexpensive, particularly outside of Panama City.

Will we be safe in Panama? Panama is safe to very travel and its people are some of the friendliest you will find anywhere. Traveling along the InterContinenal Highway and in the Azuero Peninsula is very safe. Pedasi is an area where many homes aren't locked at night and serious crime is virtually unheard. Panama City and Colon are have some areas to avoid. However, if you use the same caution that you would u
