    Do es anyone have the contact information for the shipping companies there? I am trying to locate a shipping company that can take my personal belongings and tools in a 20 container to Oakland or San Francisco Ca. And Puertp Armuellas is the closest Port to Caldera. I can Transpor my things there for Loading.

      As far as I know, you can only receive containers in Panama City on the west coast of Panama, and Colon or Bocas del Toro on the Caribbean side. There is talk of a container port being built in the future in Puerto Armuelles, but no confirmation yet.

    There are no churches listed in the above listing. I am sure that there must be at least one Catholic Church in town. Are there any other churches and are there any with services in English?

    1. admin (Post author)

      Hi Shellie, Just about every denomination of church is represented in Puerto. The main Catholic Church is called Iglesia San Antonio de Padua. located on Avenida Presidente Ramon. As far as I know, there are no services offered in English at this time.

    Hello! I’ve been searching and searching and I think you are the person I saw on another website that had real estate listings. I believe they were from private individuals and not realtors. I haven’t been able to find the site that I thought I bookmarked and wonder if you could help out. Thanks!

    1. admin (Post author)

      Hi Beverly, Sorry about that. I had to take the site down for a couple of days to change the photo program. The listings are posted by individuals mostly, but can also be from realtors, agents, or consultants that represent properties. It is meant to be a community service for Puerto Armuelles and make it easier for people to locate properties for sale or rent.

    Well we finally did it. We visited Pourto Armuelles, were hosted by a lovely couple, Debbie and Patrick. We stayed 2 weeks, and near the end of our stay, we bought a lovely old home in Las Palmas, and will be moving down as soon as we get our home sold here in Florida. This is our second time moving to Panama. We lived a year in Bouquete. My wife Shellie, did a lot of research, and we were very interested in the history of Pourto Armuelles, and decided to come down for a visit. What a charming and lovely old town. A little rough around the edges, but we loved it. We are so looking forward to becoming a part of the community, and watching it grow back to becoming a vacation destination. Don and Shellie

      It was nice getting to know you both and show you “behind the scenes” of our town. There is so much more to Puerto Armuelles than meets the eye at first. You will be a great addition to the community!

    2. Don Kirby and Shellie Leon

      Well, we are finally on our way. Both houses are sold, and the container with our STUFF will be leaving here on the 13Th of June, and we are booked on a flight the 5th of July. Then its on to our future home in Las Palmas,Pourto Armuelles. Got lots of work to do on our Lovely old home we bought. Its liviable now, but needs to have some things Tweeked and sorted out. High praise goes to Debbie our realitor for her work in finding the house for us, and spending time with us, showing us around, and introducing us to people. We hope we can be an asset to the community. We will be bringing a lot of skills Don and Shellie
