I am looking for a man by the name of Cesar Montemayor Jr. he was my roommate at St. Matins College in Olympia, Wa. He was from Panama and his family owned a banana plantation. This was back in the mid 60’s. Also looking for a place to rent for a vacation
When will you be here for vacation? Not all of the rentals are listed on the website ~ I know of a few private rentals that I can send you contact info for. Also, the hotels and B&B are listed in the Business Directory here on the website.
hi movimg there in febuary looking for rental I am retired single
I sent you an email with some current rentals available. Safe travels and we look forward to meeting you!
Cesar was from Puerto Armuelles, Panama
I’ll ask a few of the older residents and see if anyone knows him.
Thank you for your website! This is great! Do you know of any ocean front property available down on the Burica peninsula? I recently inquired about lots for sale down there but was told they are all reserved or sold. Thank you for any assistance!
Hi Cynthia ~ There are 2 beach lots in Buena Vista that are listed on the For Sale page right now. That is just past Limones on the Burica Penninsula.
My Husband and I are interested in the Puerto Armuellas area. We would like to come and stay in the area for 2-3 weeks starting around May 29th , this year. We would love to rent a house that is walking distance to town and located on a nice beach. Do you have any recommendations?
All the Best,
I would recommend Tsunami Inn or Heavenly’s Hotel. Both are inexpensive and will give you a better rate for an extended stay. They are located on the beach and walking distance to town. There are a few beach houses for rent, although none of them are walking distance to downtown. You could ride a bicycle or catch cabs, which are also cheap here. I will post more rentals as they come up on the rental page of this website, so check back regularly. Look forward to meeting you when you get to town!
Looking for long time rental. just an old surf dog.
Hola John! I sent you an email and will stay in touch as I hear of new properties for rent…near the surf 😉
We will be visiting Puerto Armuelles for a week or 2 in January 2018. I need to find a place that has cooking facilities. Can you help?
Hi Shellie! Thanks for contacting us. Keep an eye on the rental postings here and I will send you notice of others that come up. They go pretty quickly in Puerto, so many never get posted. It is more word of mouth. I sent you an email with a few contacts. I’ll keep in touch with you and let you know what’s available as your trip gets closer. Look forward to meeting you!
I will be moving to Panama May 1, 2018. I do have a rental for a 2/2 1100 sq. ft. home in El valle de Anton for $675. I would like to find something in your area. I have 3 Chihuahuas and Looking for a fenced in yard and 2 or 3 bedrooms of comparable size.
I’ve sent you some info via email and will stay in touch as your travel here gets closer. I have a Chihuahua too!
My family is moving to Puerto Armuelles this Spring (2018). We are looking for a 2 bedroom house on the ocean or very, very close. We will eventually purchase, but are looking to rent for 3 to 6 months before committing. If you know of any rentals becoming available in the near future please let me know. We visited Puerto over the New Year and really loved it. Our house has sold and we are working on getting out of Alaska! We are water people – swimming, kayaking, surfing. So something near the water is really important to us.
My husband and I will be returning to Panama in late May. We are currently in PC working on our Pensionado visas. We are looking for a three to six month furnished rental, close to the beach and to town at that time. While we haven’t been to Puerto yet, it sounds and looks amazing and we’d love to start the next phase of our lives there.
Thank you in advance for your help!
I sent you an email and will stay in touch ~ look forward to meeting you!
I’ll be in flying into Panama City on April 10th and will be driving around the Peninsula before flying out of David on April 18th to Costa Rica. How can I contact you to see some properties, both rental and for sell, while I’m in the area?
My wife and I are moving to Panama in July, looking for something close to the beach one or two bedrooms looking for 3 or 6 mo lease.
I will email you a couple of beach rentals that may fit. You may have to place a deposit to hold one of them until July.
The two of us are coming to Puerto Armuelles during the second week this July. Do you know of anyone who might be renting out a room at that time? Thank you!
I’ll keep an eye out and I also sent you an email with some suggestions. Look forward to meeting you!
Looking to find out more about the area, planning a trip there within the next 6-8 months. With the goal for f eventually getting pensionado status and moving there.
Please email, Thanks.
I will be coming to Panama,specifically Puerto and Pedasi, scoping out a place for retirement. I will be renting at first but also am interested in purchasing property to build on our a reasonably priced home. Are these listing for rent and sale up to date?
Hola! The “For Sale” postings are up-to-date unless an owner forgets to tell me they’ve sold their place. I stay in pretty close touch with most of them, so it’s safe to say they are generally current.
However, rentals are in HIGH demand in Puerto Armuelles. By the time I post one on the website, it’s rented. I’d have to say the rental postings are more of a “sampling”. It is best to email me when you are coming here and I can let you know who has something available at that time.
Like everyone else, I’m interested in moving to your area and am interested in a rental. I’ll be coming for a visit in October with an eye towards moving in the spring. I am a single woman with a small dog and was told by a blogger that it’s a safe place for a single woman.
I know of about 6 or 8 single women, most over age 50, who live in Puerto and have been here for 1 or more years. We have a bunch of single men too! I was here alone a few times while my husband was out of country and never felt unsafe. Violent crime is very minimal in Puerto Armuelles. Petty theft is the biggest issue we deal with, so you don’t want to leave valuables laying around (in an unlocked car, etc.)
I need to keep in contact with you. I have been to Pedasi and Guanico (Tosini) and I am coming back in Jan. for 3 months. I have all ready booked Pedasi and Guanaco for Jan. through March but, I have always wanted to check out Puerto Armeulles. After my trip from Jan. – March., I will be coming back in April of 2019 and I want to check out Puerto Armeulles. So, maybe you can hook me up with a place to stay. I do not know the dates yet but I will tell you when I do. I also signed up for your letter. Monthly I guess it is. Anyways, talk to you soon.
Let me know when the dates of your stay in Puerto are confirmed. Rentals go pretty quickly here; we need more!
I am interested in the low end rentals in El Palmar & Corazon Fe Jesus… I will be available to look at such during the month of November!!
Let me know when you’ll be here and I’ll see if I can hook you up. Debbie@visitPuertoArmuelles.com
I will be visiting Puerto in Feb, 2019 with the thought of future retirement there, perhaps 2-3 years. I know things are changing rapidly there, but I was hoping to get a feel for the real estate available there. I am a single man so I wouldn’t need anything larger than 2 bedrooms, sale or rental. I just need some advice regarding neighborhoods closer to the beach, safe, near some ex-pats, where I wouldn’t need a car too soon after moving there. Just some examples of places, perhaps to purchase soon and rent until retirement. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
I’ll send you an email with answers to specific questions. In general, it’s always a good idea to rent first to find out if you really like living somewhere. I have you on the email list for my newsletters, which also have good, current, information. Hope to meet you in February!
Hi. Will be in your area 2nd week of January looking to rent for 2 to 6 months. Tough to see anything online, any suggestions?
The best thing to do is stay in touch with us as the time of your travel gets near and we can let you know what is available at that time.
Hi there, I will be looking for a long term rental shortly. Ideally I would like to find somewhere quiet, space for my 2 children to play in the yard, fruit trees. walking distance to a market, and close enough to access the beach(or a pool) and nature. One necessity is access to high speed internet for my work. Could you recommend a neighborhood based on those desires? Thank you.
“Quiet” and close to town, would include Las Palmas, San Jose, Los Angeles, and Spanish Town. Finding rentals here is a bit tricky because a lot of locals still use “word-of-mouth” advertising. There are some Airbnb and hostels that can be a good start, to get a feel for the areas and start talking to folks. Message me when you have dates set and I’ll point you to a couple of places: Editor@visitPuertoArmuelles.com
My husband and I will be coming to Panama in December 2019 we are thinking of retiring here. Would you please send us some information?
Sent an email with free report. Look forward to meeting you!
I would like to request some business rentals, either for a Bar and or Jet ski rental business.
Small hostel long term rental would be very appreciated as well.
Hi there,I will be visiting Puerto in Mid OCT 2019 with the thought of future retirement there, perhaps 2-3 years. I know things are changing rapidly there, but I was hoping to get a feel for the real estate, I just need some advice regarding neighborhoods closer to the beach, beach properties that i can build upon down the road, even beach front properties away from the city that will take time to come up..
Thanks in advance for your assistance
Hola! I sent you an email with several free reports attached. Look forward to meeting you and showing you are beach town!
Hi Debbie, I’m hoping to find a house or apartment for rent from November until April that has fiber optic cable internet. I work online so it’s a top priority. I need something that is a reasonable price, furnished and within walking distance to grocery shopping or a short taxi ride. Would appreciate it if you can give me some contacts. Thanks.
There isn’t any place in Puerto with fiber optics yet. That said, I work online and have no problems with Cable & Wireless (5g) and I have friends who use Planet Telecom (a bit more pricey), which is satellite internet, and they say the connection is good. I will email you with some property options.
Hello we are looking to move to. Puerto next year and want to see some rentals when we come on vacation in September 2020.
If u have photos of the rental properties please email to me. Thank you
I’ll send what is available next month (August). Hopefully the airport is open in September!
Hello, I’m either taking a private tour or panama relocation tour in March 2021. Can you give me an idea of what a long term rental would cost? It’s going to be just me and my dog. Thank you.
In Puerto Armuelles, there is a VERY broad range of rental prices. A modest home in a Panamanian neighborhood can be as low as $250/month. A nice furnished home in an upscale area or near the beach can be upwards of $1000/month. Still quite reasonable, compared to other places.
Hi…looking at this area for rental…trying to decide if this town is for me and my 15 year old son…thanks. At least 2 bedroom home, we have a Goldendoodle dog that will be living with us…
hi there, pls can u send me long term rental options and do u perhaps know who to contact for rentals along the coast line all the way to santa catalina and torio?
I work for Inside Panama Real Estate and we have offices all over the country. Most handle rentals also. You can also find rentals on encuentra24 and Facebook Groups for Panama.
Hello, I’m looking to relocate to Panama in 2021. I’ll be visiting in March. Do you have a list of long term rentals in Puerto Armuelles? This is looking at the place for me. I’ve been told it’s getting more dangerous, but I see an earlier post where you say it’s mostly petty theft. I don’t need to be on the ocean but close to would be nice. I’m looking at $650 at the most. Thanks so much
Contact me when you have your arrival date scheduled and I will let you know what is available. There are a few places that will fit your criteria. Look forward to meeting you! Debbie@visitPuertoArmuelles.com
My family and I are looking to move to the Las Palmas/Puerto Armuelles area this fall (September).
Hello, We are making our 2nd trip back to Panama in March of 2023. Our goal is to move around August of 2023. Were looking at a few different beach towns and one of them is Puerto Armuelles. We have already spent time in Boquete, Las Lajas, and Boca Chica. Were looking for a rental first while we seek out a home t buy. Do you have a list of homes for sale as general for rent. I know I’m coming in early but planning is half the battle.
Let me know when you have specific dates for the rental and I will send you what is available. In the meantime, check out the real estate page for current listings. I also know of quite a few properties that are not posted and can give you more information when you get here. Look forward to meeting you!
