It is a great location in the popular & friendly beach community of Corazon de Jesus.

Most of the lots on this block are already owned by expats.

From your front door you can be at the:

  • Beach in minutes by foot
  • Grocery store in a 2 minute drive
  • Downtown Puerto Armuelles after a 10 minute drive.

House Improvements – Already Done

The house is wonderfully situated on a corner lot.  Although it is priced as if it were a typical unimproved Panamanian house, it has had significant improvements.

The improvements we have done are listed below.   However, the house does need further remodeling.

We have already improved the house:

  • Created a wonderful house design for your tropical lifestyle (see images below)
  • Secured permit to remodel the house (which we will pass on to you)
  • Structural upgrades to the house to make it seismically safe.
  • Carefully created new windows, rooms and walls to achieve a well-designed floor plan
  • Added post and beam structure for critical “outdoor” living space

These improvements mean that the boring part of the remodel has already been done.  Or at least a significant part of the boring aspects of remodeling.

Now you get to customize it!

Remodeling help

There are a number of local and expat contractors that can help you with your remodel.  We can help point you to good people to work with.

Puerto Armuelles is a great place to call home.

  • Built right along the Pacific Ocean.
  • 2nd largest town in the popular Chiriqui Province.
  • Real sense of place
  • Everything you need, right in town

Puerto Armuelles is an increasing popular place for both expat retirees and investors. This is due, in part, to the near completion of the new 4 lane highway linking Puerto Armuelles to the Panama’s InterAmericana main highway. The improved access has allowed many more people to discover the many charms of this wonderful beach town.

Puerto Armuelles is a unique and charming beach town. Puerto Armuelles is the only true beach town in Panama. Panama has villages, cities, and resort areas on the beach, but no real town. A great beach town to live in.

Puerto also stands out because of its unique look. It looks very different from almost all towns in Panama. This is because, starting in 1927, it was built by Chiquita Banana.  Chiquita Banana put its own unique stamp on Puerto building neighborhoods of tropical wooden houses on stilts as well as the downtown, pool, and more.

Fabulous. I just got back from Panama City.
We went to the new BioMuseo. It was amazing. I’d recommend it.

I received your contact request too. When you know when you’ll
be in town, please let me know.

Thanks, Betsy

I was wondering if there were any homes for rent or lease on a 6 month or 1 year commitment. I could leave outside of major cities as long as major medical care was within reasonable distance and I could get by on english? I would like utilities also. I would like to do a lot saltwater fishing for fun and food. Can you have a dog there? Thank You

Hi Joel,

I wish I could help you more, but I am not a rental agent.

The best way to find a rental is to ask on the various Panama forums (search Yahoo Groups) and craigslist.
If you are renting from a Panamanian, make sure you are clear about your expectations.
The level of service and amenities typically provided by a Panamanian landlord is not usually
as complete or full service as Americans and Canadian landlords typically provide.
