About Don Martin

We are seasoned international travelers and own and manage a boutique travel service catering to the Cayman Islands.

We recently relocated from the US to Panama, as we fell in love with the country, it's diversity, natural beauty, beaches, mountains, jungles, rain forests and fishing.

Don Martin purchased this condo in 2013

Why Don Martin chose Río Mar

On our first visit to Panama we rented a condo at the Rio Mar Resort, and loved it from the time we arrived. We also stayed at other condos in the Coronado and Gorgona areas, but it was a clear choice to purchase at Rio Mar.

It offers everything we wanted: safety, stunning views, beautiful, long and secluded beaches for walking, multiple pools, on-site restaurant and spa plus fully equipped gym.

It's away from the fast growing Coronado area, yet just a 10 minute drive for shopping and a wide variety of restaurants.

There's also a great 18 hole golf course open to the public at Vista Mar, 5 minutes away.

The surfing right off of the Rio Mar beach is outstanding, and there are surf competitions held about once a month which is great entertainment.

What makes this condo unique

Rio Mar offers a serene luxury setting with privacy and 24/7 security. The area is very safe, and you won't find people trying to sell you drugs or trinkets on the beach. It's also a great value, where you would pay double in some other properties and locations that offer less.

Loved Rio Mar

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd trip to Panama and 1st staying at the Rio Mar Resort. We just loved it. The condo was super clean and the views from the 22nd floor of the ocean, beach and mountains blew us away.

There are like 5 lap size pools to swim in, pool loungers with umbrellas, a game room with foosball, pool, ping pong and air hockey! There's also a gym, nice restaurant and spa with jacuzzis. Plus the beach is great for walks and shelling.

The condo is beautifully furnished and decorated and fully equipped. High speed wifi and cable worked great. We loved the memory foam pillow top mattresses!

Highly recommend Rio Mar and this condo.

Your Condo is simply a Place in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

It seems to be one of the best kept secrets to have such magnificent ocean views, as well as views of the surrounding farms and hills. Your beach is wonderful, the restaurant is delicious and so inexpensive, the spa offers soothing massages, and the pools go on into infinity! We will return, and it is not a threat!! Thank you Don for allowing us the privilege of staying in your condo among the clouds!

Fun in the sun

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Linda & Don Martins condo for a month. It was exactly as described, well equipped and clean. Don could not have been a better host. He spend half a day showing us around the area and couldn't have been more helpful. There is alot to enjoy in the complex with the beach at your fingertips. The shopping and restaurants are plentiful in the area. We spent one weekend in Panama City and another few days in Boquete. We would definitely recommend the condo complex and the Martins as hosts.

Fantastic Panarama

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts, the Martins, provide very comfortable well appointed condo. My friend Tammy and I enjoyed not only the amenities inside the unit but also the beautiful grounds and the proximity to the breathtakingly beautiful beach. There was nothing missing. We relaxed on the patio at night, star gazing and allowing the soft tropical breezes to lull us to sleepiness.

The unit was spotless. We had easy access to Coronado and Farallon. Security is top notch.

We both highly recommend Panarama. Thank you for sharing.

I see why they call it Panarama!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place! Rio Mar is a very boutique resort with many swimming pools, a restaurant, gym, spa, saunas and jacuzzi's and beautiful black and tan beaches.

The condo is on the 22nd floor and has views of the ocean, beaches and mountains from every room. It is completely equipped with everything you would want including a huge flat panel TV, wifi, gas bbq grill right on the deck and every thing is new and clean.

Rio Mar is only like 10 minutes from Coronado, which is the main town with supermarkets and plenty of restaurants. We did zip lining in El Valle, the Gamboa Rainforest tram, and went to the Miraflores locks at the Panama Canal to watch the ships go through the canal.

The owners went out of their way to help us with directions coming in from the airport, set us up with transportation a rental car where they delivered it to the condo.

We would definitely return!

A very nice new condo w excellent amenities

  • 5 of 5

The Rio Mar condo was great. Brand new, very clean, well stocked, great location with very nice amenities. The 22nd floor balcony was wonderful. I enjoyed just watching the ever changing ocean & beach down below. Rio Mar beach has a lot of character. It is definitely the best beach in Panama for surfing & exploring caves & just enjoying the natural beauty. The owners took excellent care of us. They were always available to answer our questions. They have a very detailed notebook with info about the condo to make your stay more enjoyable. My husband was thankful for the high tech smart tv & dependable internet connection so he could work during the day. The on site restaurant was very good. The pools & public social areas were very relaxing. Rio Mar condo is close enough to the conveniences of Coronado but not too close either. It is very quiet, safe, & beautiful at Rio Mar. It was truly our home away from home. We would love to come back & would recommend this condo to friends & family.

The Rio Mar Resort is 10 minutes west of the Coronado Community and 75 - 90 minutes from Panama City and the Tocumen International Airport (PTY). The resort featues 7 pools with immaculately manicured landscaping and grounds. The Maresas restaurant is on-site and offers casual dining with a lovely menu, serving tasty and well presented meals. Lava Spa is the on-site full Spa with massages, treatments and private jacuzzi rooms.

The Rio Mar beach is arguably one of the prettiest stretches of beach in Panama. The sands are a beautiful blend of tan and black and the patterns shift with every tide change. The Rio Mar river meets the Pacific ocean on the west side of the Rio Mar property, and makes for a fascinating experience while watching the tides change where the river meets the ocean.

Beach walking and beach combing are more great features of The Rio Mar Resort. You can walk for miles in near solitude and take in the scenic views of the amazing beach sand patters, cliffs, caves and follow the large schools of pelicans flying in formation along the coastline.

The surf at Rio Mar is one of the most popular along the Panama Gold Coast. On occasion regional surfing contests are held on Rio Mar beach and provide an added entertainment treat. For seasoned surfers, there is a surf shop 2 minutes from the resort where you can rent your surf boards. For those who’ve always wanted to learn to surf, you now can as the surf shop is also a surfing school with individual instructors on-site.

Scenic El Valle is a short 20 minute drive up the mountain, with shops, restaurants, large open air market, mud baths and thrilling zip lining.

The fast growing Coronado town has several large supermarkets, modern clinic and a wide variety of restaurants and bars and is a 15 minute drive.
