A 40 minute drive from here will take you to the lovely mountain town of El Valle which has many different activities and sights to see. The drive to El Valle is a scenic hilly road with many fruit stands and craftworks on the way. The town itself is a bit cooler than the coast on most days. El Valle boasts a fascinating Sunday Market with arts, crafts, plants and food items. The natives come down from the mountains on those days to sell their wares and the Guna (formerly called Kuna) Indians also bring their world famous molas. There are interesting hikes to areas with beautiful views, waterfalls, and historical points with petroglyphs. If butterflies are your cup of tea, El Valle boasts the number one attraction in Panama—the Butterfly Haven, where you can experience butterflies all around you in a caged area feeding on beautiful flowers. A zoo is also located in El Valle; it is the only place in the world where you can see a golden frog. All are gone from the wild and one remains there at the zoo to view.

For those who golf, there are several golf courses in the beach areas.

Surfers, paddle boarders and kayakers can rent here in El Palmar. There are surf lessons for those who are interested.

Yoga/Zumba/Pilates is offered in Coronado.

There are many restaurants in the beach areas with varied cuisines.

Panama offers a great assortment of organized tours to jungle, beach, mountain, lake and indigenous areas.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1980

About: I hail from Delaware, USA. I am an artist and retired educator. I spent 25 years here in Panama as an artist and educator teaching Kindergarten. I raised two children during that time, then in 1999 went to Okinawa, Japan to work as an art teacher. After 14 fascinating years in Asia (teaching, hiking, diving, traveling, etc) I retired and returned to my beloved Panama. I currently live on this same property. A manager takes care of your needs and I am there to help too :) I continue to paint, scuba dive, hike, do yoga and walk the gorgeous beaches of Palmar. I will be offering art classes here in my studio home here in El Palmar. I am never bored with all that nature and God provides for me here :)

Why Río Mar, San Carlos, Panama:
When we bought this property in the early 80s, we were looking for a place where our children could enjoy the ocean and all it offers. We loved the ocean and wanted them to love it too. It was a mass of jungle with a lot of tall Bahia grass. My husband and I used to come at the beginning and dig out the very tall grass so our children could walk in on the property. Eventually we built a bathroom, then added a camper. Next we built a storehouse, shower and covered patio so we could remove the camper. In 1999 I built a small house that I named La Casa Chica. It stayed the same until this year when I renovated it-- and doubled its size. Now it is no longer CHICA!)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Spacious Living and Dining Area, Hammock to Enjoy, Dvd Player for Those Days You Want to Chill Inside, Unique Bathroom With Shells Imbedded in the Walls, and Curves All Over the House- not many Straight Lines! (Gaudi of Barcelona Inspired a Lot of What I Did With This House and With the Two Houses On the Property :), Dead End Street-- So No Through Traffic. A Pair of Yellow Head Parrots Come Visit Sometimes, Then Fly Away Leaving Parakeets to Chirp Their Tunes. I Have Lime, Tamarindo and Mango Trees That Are Fruit Bearing. My Mangos Are Some of the Best I Have Eaten Here! I have a Moringa tree and you are welcome to harvest some leaves and flowers for your ingestion. Our newest addition is an iguana feeding station. A few come in the mornings by the seawall to munch on fruit and veggie scraps.
