Coronado, Panama…..Not To Be Confused With San Diego

Back in the 1940s, Coronado was just a few sleepy ranches alongside an unspoiled stretch of blue Pacific and black-and-white speckled beaches. However, Coronado is now a highly popular beach town on the Pacific coast of Panama.

Located an hour from Panama City, it is on the ‘Arco Seco’ (‘dry arch’) stretch of coastline, so named because of the remarkably low rainfall it receives each year.

Bucket Lists For 2016 Instead of Resolutions

For 2016 Todd and I have decided that we would rather put together a list of amazing things we want to do during the year instead of things we want to not do, change or improve.

2015 was a big year for us! We sold everything that we owned and moved here to Panama. That will probably be hard to top for the rest of our lives, but we will keep trying.

So what do you add to a bucket list when you live in Panama? This country is so full of amazing places, locations and things to do.  Here is a Top 10 Bucket List Items in Panama. Some we have already done, but wanted to create a list for others so you can add them to your bucket list!

SO Why Panama? Playa Coronado Tops The Charts!

There were many deciding factors behind our move to Panama! Many of them including weather, monetary system, Spanish language, location,  beaches and others!

Part of what lead to our final decision to move here was the decision by so many others over the last few years. Panama and the beaches area where we are located has become a huge hotspot for retirees and expats from American and Canada.

In a 2013 article Yahoo Finance named Coronado Beach Panama as one of their top 5 World’s Best Beach cities for retirement.

Coronado, a fast-growing beachfront community about an hour outside Panama City, Panama, offers a high-quality beach lifestyle with all the amenities and services a retiree could want. Historically, this coastal town has been a top weekend getaway choice among residents of nearby Panama City. Over the past half-dozen years, Coronado has developed into a busy commercial center that makes for a turn-key retirement choice. It is evolving into a full-fledged retirement destination with an established population of full-time foreign residents supported by a developed infrastructure, including good medical facilities.

When deciding where to move or live make sure you do your research! Aside from actually traveling to Panama we did a TON of homework on our future home. Blogs, books, travel blogs, YouTube videos, Facebook, etc! We checked it all out, but I would recommend that you physically go to the place that you are considering moving to before you make the move! It might save you time, money and heartache!
