The casita we had was very clean and comfortable. Everything that you needed to cook meals. Great outdoor area and beautiful pool. The owners were very accommodating. If we ever come back this is the place that we would stay.

Relocation Visit
We stayed at this property at the end of a 2 week self guided tour thru Panama. We stayed at 4 locations and this was our favorite. Our Casita was spacious, very clean and well appointed. Steps away from the Casita was a great pool & sun deck surrounded by palms and a beautiful landscaped yard. The entire property is gated in a very quiet neighborhood, close to Panama highway and maybe a mile to the beaches. The Hosts, Russ & Linda, we’re great! They provided a great book of information in the casita and are very helpful with recommendations and even assisted us in locating a COVID testing center for our return flight. Top Notch!!!

Fun Tropical Retreat
My husband and I stayed here for 12 nights in November. We enjoyed our casita...it was cozy and it had all we needed. The air conditioned in the bedroom worked great and the king size bed was comfy. It was hot in the living area but that's to be expected the tropics! We spent most of our time on our private patio - we loved it! We sat out there, grilled our dinner, and enjoyed the space. The pool was awesome...big and refreshing...we spent a lot of time here. Russ and Linda were great hosts, we wish we saw them more but they were always busy making their place special for future guests. The location was nice...we could walk to a (very) small supermarket. There was also a nice lady selling fruit at a stand on the corner. We don't speak much Spanish and she was very sweet. Really good Pineapple, oranges and limes. I miss the fruit stand already. As we've moved to other locations on our panana trip, no other place has a fruit stand within walking distance. We didn't rent a car for this part of the trip but taxis are cheap and it's a quick walk to grab one from this casita. Thank you Russ & Linda!

Better than Home
Our month long stay at Paradise N Panama exceeded all our possibly need and the king size bed was perfect! One could be as involved with other guests as you'd like or as private as desired. The covered patio offered additional living space, a great spot to get out of the sun, play games, listen to music, read or share a bottle of wine. The private bbq was a bonus although cooking with the other guests was also a pleasure. Linda was exceptional in sharing places to visit and things to see. Russ worked tirelessly in maintaining the property and ensuring everything ran smoothly. We made wonderful friends in not only the owners but other guests as well. Taxi's or bus rides to Coronado for groceries, shopping or to explore are plentiful and easily accessible. The casita is a short, 5 minute, but hot walk from 3 mini marts for items - wine, beer, spirits, vegetables, canned goods and paper products if you forgot something from Coronado grocery stores. The beach is close but suggest a bus or taxi ride. Watching the fishermen bring in their daily catch and lunch of fresh fish at one of the beach huts is an experience not to be missed. This is a trip we will repeat again next year and will talk of for years to come! Thank you Linda and Russ for your gracious and warm hospitality!

Super Clean
We were two couples that stayed at the Hunts for two weeks and could not have been happier. If you like to explore you need a car. There is 3 grocery store walking distance and 1 Chinese restaurant. Beside Police Station. The other closest restaurants are Pizzeria Torito's (super good/went 3 times) but slow (who cares your on vacation). Rincon Catracho had good spaghetti and breakfast. Although we eat breakfast at our casita almost everyday as there is EVERYTHING one needs to cook. We eat at La Ruina once and it was so so. If you want to meet a lot of expat's go to Coronado (10-15 min drive) on Wednesday night at Picasso for happy hour between 5 & 7. The place gets full fast. There were so many people from Ontario which was perfect as we are from Ontario as well. We enjoyed our drinks but the food was so, so. Before entering Coronado there is a police check point. They don't bother with the tourist. It was all good. The police are park on the side of the road (motorcycle) a lot which is good as it keeps the traffic from speeding. Driving and drivers in Panama was all good. The nearest beach is Playa Gorgona (white & black sand). We then went to Playa Malibu which is a white sand beach where you can walk for miles and hardly no one there. We were there during the week though. We also drove to Playa Santa Clara on a Saturday and OMG was it busy. But that is the only one we went to that had numerous huts for shade, they all had a hammock, small room/bath one can rent and two restaurants. If you like to people watch that's your spot. One day we drove to El Valley (pronounce L vajay) which is a small town in the mountains and was worth the drive. The views are amazing and the town has a big farmers market open 7 days a week. We also went to the Panama Canal. Make sure you get there before 11:00 am to see the boat crossing. There is a lot to enjoy about Panama. You can drink there water (almost everywhere) it's US money, same time zone as Ontario, no hurricanes and the people were friendly. Would we go back and stay at the Hunts? Absolutely. Russ and Linda are friendly and there property/pool is perfect. The ONLY thing I wish is that they would give you more info as we found out most of it by ourselves. If you drive from Panama City and put Nueva Gorgonna in your GPS it will take you there no problem. That's what we did. During our two week stay there were two other couples from Ontario. Paradise in Panama is truly a nice place.

It really is Paradise!
We were fortunate to spend 3 weeks at this mini resort in Jan. 2020. Everything is exactly as described & pictured. The property is meticulously kept and the pool very clean. The Casita we were in had everything you could want or need for preparing your own meals and being comfortable. There are many small local restaurants nearby if you choose to go out that have great food at reasonable prices. The hosts, Linda and Russ are very welcoming and will assist you with suggestions for restaurants or day trips. I would absolutely recommend staying here if you are visiting the Gorgona area.

Great Place to Rest, Relax, & Refresh
My husband and I stayed at one of the Hunt's casitas for two months during February and March. Paradise in Panama is a mini-resort for 3 couples, so the beautiful pool is almost private, and one of its very best features. (A convenient pool is essential in the tropical Panamanian heat.) We visited with the other couples around the pool every day. Our casita had everything one needs: kitchen, comfortable living area, well-sized tiled shower, and a super patio (with a hammock for snoozing or reading). Suggest you leave your oven food recipes at home: ovens don't exist in Panama -- they produce too much heat. Instead, use the BBQ grills, with tin foil pans for vegetables. The grills also are great for meals with other guests. Russ and Linda Hunt, the owners, live at the mini-resort. They make helpful suggestions on activities and travel. Do ask them! Thanks for the many books! We did not rent a car, so the couple block walk to the Pan American highway over rocky streets in daytime heat (90-95 degrees every day) was intense. Buses for 30 cents to Coronado (3 miles) are plentiful on the highway, and other buses take you to restaurants (we enjoyed Picasso and the Sandbar) and the Pacific beach. Local buses in Gorgona take you to restaurants (Rincon Catracha and La Ruina) and the local fishing beach. Taxis are readily available for $3-4, and a bit higher for trips to other beaches and the cool mountain town of El Valle. We also visited Casco Viejo and the Canal in Panama City, seafood markets, plus a jungle trip to the Emberra people. The natural beauty of Panama, with its hills and flowers, are superb. Deanna
