Join the ranks of celebrities and many others from around the world who have chosen Pedasi, Panama as their newest first or second-home destination. Looking for an active lifestyle? Choose from a multitude of readily-accessible water sports and wildlife opportunities. Visitors to the area will find sweeping scenery, charming rural towns, and unparalleled deep-sea fishing just minutes away from shore between Isla Iguana, a protected wildlife refuge, which is home to hundreds of species of birds, reptiles and island nature reserves, offering the best snorkeling, scuba-diving and wildlife-watching. There is no limit to the water sports activities that can be explored at the bottom of the Azuero Peninsula, a true sportsman’s paradise.
Undoubtedly one of the area’s main attractions is the endless number of deserted beaches surrounded by lush tropical landscapes, intertwined with enchanting rolling hills. The beaches and waves are joyfully shared by surf lovers, jogging enthusiasts, couples strolling on the beach and children playing in the sand. Pedasi is a playground for anyone seeking adventure, be it in the water or on dry land. The town’s deep-sea fishing is considered among the best in the world, but be prepared to see some of the most beautiful sights ever while out on the ocean: whale and dolphin watching can be done all year round, and mile-long coral reefs await below for snorkel and scuba diving enthusiasts.
Only a short walk from Andromeda is the town of Pedasi which offers cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and souvenir shops. A regional airport receives several domestic flights a week to Pedasi, and is currently under expansion to receive larger charter flights. Just an hour’s drive from the Pedasi town on impeccably smooth roads are the bigger towns of Las Tablas and Chitre, offering more extensive amenities, including hospitals, shopping malls, golf course and a casino. These big towns are only 4 hours away from Panama City, with its first-world modernity on the Pan-American Highway.
The Azuero Peninsula is considered the heartland of Panama and is famous for its traditions and folklore. In its eastern tip you’ll find the beautiful town of Pedasi, a small coastal fishing village nestled on green rolling hills that resemble the Tuscan region of Italy. Tourism and real estate have begun to increase in the area since it enjoys some of the best weather in Panama, compared by many as the “Riviera of the Tropics,” offering world-class sport fishing, surfing, whale-watching, and endless adventure possibilities.
At the bottom of the Azuero Peninsula, however, one feels almost at the end of the world. There is a timeless quality to daily life there, a blend of the ultra-modern with the centuries-old traditional ways. Impeccably paved highways slink through endless green fields and tiny clustered towns, colorful and tranquil; because they tend to hug the highway, very few towns have sprung up along the many beaches here, and the waterfront is largely deserted.
Panama is fast becoming one of the world’s top retirement destinations and also a world class tourist location – particularly for adventure and eco-tourism. Long overshadowed by its neighbors such as Mexico and Costa Rica where mass tourism is now the norm, Panama has been relatively unknown except to travelers with special interests such as world record deep sea fishing, birding, river rafting and rain forest experiences. However, the Panamanian economy is stronger and more stable than these other nations and presents a superior infrastructure throughout the country.
Panama also offers world-class modern medical facilities and treatment, with a new flagship hospital under construction in the Azuero Peninsula. Additionally, the core income of the Panama Canal adds to this stability, and given its recently approved $5.4 billion expansion project, this will create an even further increased value as well as local strength and stability for Panama’s economy and government.
