Santa Clara is just 1 hour and 15 minutes from downtown Panama
City. The entire drive is a mostly flat, well maintained
highway. This is the closest pretty Pacific beach
to the Capital city. This region has excellent weather,
picturesque beaches and scenic views of the Farallon
(lighthouse) Island. New World Real Estate has
an office in this area.
Three major resort projects reside in
this region and have enjoyed tremendous success. The
Decameron and Barcelo Resorts are both massive, all-inclusive
hotels that also offer villas for sale and the Buenaventura
Project is adding a Bristol hotel later this year. Several
other projects are in the works. With good swimming
beaches, nearby restaurants and grocery stores, this area is
poised to become Panama's first true resort town.
Why do we like Santa Clara for investment?
1. Weather: The warm, dry climate is probably the
most suitable year-round climate for beach tourism in
2. Location: It is situated just 1 hour 15 mins.
from Panama City, making it the closest, high-quality beach
in the country. Highly accessible, the Pan-American
Highway passes directly through this area.
3. Infrastructure: Because this region has always
been a popular weekend getaway location for Panama City
residents, there is a nice tourism infrastructure
(restaurants, B&Bs) to be enjoyed by investors or retirees.
