Great Commercial Investment on Busy Oceanfront Road

$199,000    Reduced ~ $125,000

This restaurant/hotel located on the main road from Puerto Armuelles to PTP (Petroleum Terminal Panama) is in a prime location for continuous drive-by traffic (Potential CUSTOMERS!). Less than 10 minutes from downtown and directly across the street from one of the most popular, calm water, beaches in the area.

The new buzz around Panama is the tremendous potential for growth in the now discovered town of Puerto Armuelles, in Chiriqui province. With the start-up of Del Monte this year, numerous infrastructure projects by the National government, and the attention to eco-tourism along the Burica Peninsula, there is a lot going on in this area! It’s the perfect time to get on board, while prices are still affordable and there will be potential for growth in the near future.
