Coronado, Panamá, and its Traditions
The town of Coronado, Panamá, less than 2 hours driving from the main city of Panamá, is mainly recognized by it´s internationally very well known resort, golf club and equestrian club, which many years ago has developed a unique area to offer locals and visitors a very modern and well protected beach club.
Lately, due to international marketing, more and more people seeking retirement or re-location are looking into Coronado as a place to live, or at least, spend some time during the year.
Coronado offers everything from small old houses that usually belong to well- and long- established families from Panamá, to other houses, either inside the town or by the beach, to very nice condo buildings. There are prices for all budgets, but some properties have the tendency to be, by Panamanian standards, very upscale and high price. The residential complex is surrounded by local security, and an entrance gate protects residents from outsiders.
A mainstay of live in Coronado are the weekly family reunions, during which all young fellows get together and go to many towns in the neighborhood to party, horseback ride or to one of the several good attractions in the area, like El Valle de Antón, Altos de María or Punta Chame. All of these areas offer excellent tourist programs. The adults prefer to enjoy their horses, or play golf with friends.
Coronado is situated in a strategic place, as a visitor can easily go from one place to another, including the main city, Panamá. It also offers three modern malls, one emergency hospital, a variety of restaurants, pharmacies, and nearby, in the town of Chame, there are governmental and postal offices, bank branches, little stores, great supermarket chains, along with local vegetable and seasonal fruits that you can buy everywhere at an excellent price, making your quality of life much easier and convenient.
