You can drive or take tours of the Panama Canal, or visit nearby towns and enjoy natural tropical settings, Rainforests, Ecoturism.
Gorgona Beach is located about an hour from Panama City. Playa Gorgona is in the arco seco (dry arc) of Panama and so the weather is drier than most areas of Panama. Panama uses the US Dollar as its local currency.
Located in front of the buildings is the social area with the pool and a large concrete bohio with bar if you wish to get out of the sun and into the shade. Just a few feet away are steps or an elevator that will take you down to the beachfront. Playa Gorgona is known as one of the largest most beautiful beaches in Panama. Great for swimming or snorkeling.
Playa Gorgona is centrally located so that day trips can be taken to visit nearby towns and attractions, including El Valle, The Panama Canal, Isla Grande, Panama City, Albrook Mall (huge shopping) Fort San Lorenzo and Portobelo in Colon
We will include a set of our HOA rules when we send the information letter. Our rules basically are common sense and do not have any surprises. If you have questions initially then email us and we will be happy to provide you with answers.

Definitely 5 Stars! My husband, 9 year old daughter and I stayed at the condo for a week. The pictures do not justify the views. One side the ocean the other views of the mountain. We felt very welcomed when we got there.

One hour from Panama City on the Pacific Ocean. Located just off of the Pan-American Highway. In the Coronado - Gorgona Beach area. Playa Serena is pretty easy to find.
If you prefer to have someone drive you from the airport to the beach, we can give you the contact info for a couple of drivers who will assist you. One of these drivers also is a wonderful tour guide (and very funny we are told). We can also give you tour information and assist you with directions to go many places on your own.
