“Peaceful, relaxing stay in paradise.” My sister and I had a marvelous stay here. Cabin was clean and comfortable. Property was very well maintained. The pool was always the right temperature. Other guests were quiet and respectful. Wifi worked like a dream. The beach was only a 3 minute walk from the cabin and mostly deserted. Coronado is approximately a 20 minute drive. Aflredo was very pleasant and helpful. He took us on a fantastic tour of the Panama canal and Panama city. I highly recommend this property to anyone with a means of transport and is looking for a tranquil paradise.
“A Nice Slice Of Heaven” We just returned from spending the month of February in Gorgona. Tom and Karen have this 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo prepared with everything. The kitchen is equipped with all you need and the space was great for the 4 of us. Wi-fi was easy and having access to free long distance in North america and a great Weber bbq. The view from the balcony overlooking the ocean on one side and the mountains and fishing village was great. We met wonderful people on our morning walks -an incredible beach and only a 10 minute walk to the fishing village for a fresh catch of sea bass. Just a few minutes to walk to the local sports bar, La Ruina - sit at the bar - and the bus stop is right across the street - 30 cents to the main road! Cabs were easy - the guard would call for us or you can set up the cell phone Tom and Karen have available and for $3. we drove into Coronado with 3 supermarkets - Super 99, the The Rey and and the El Machetazo - best produce We took a bus from the main road into the albrook Mall in Panama City - $2.50. Fyi - when you return, book your ticket in the Mall for Santa Clara and get off at Gorgona - you will need to buy a 'superpass card'' for $1.50 as well, not just the bus tickets. If you need help - Tom and Karen have a wonderful property manager, Carlo - he was there for us, when one of our companions forgot her insulin! There is also a new clinic in Coronado - the Doctor speaks English - $20 to see him! They have a very good dentist in Coronado close to Super 99. Day trip - definitely El Vallee - cooler - great market and busy on a Sunday. Grab Oscar for a tour of the Old City and the Canal - he picked us up at the airport - great English and sense of humour and a wealth of info. Great restraunts and the local paper is now on-line for the area. Hasta la próxima vez ... gracias Lynne, Bryan, Pat and Janet - Ontario
