The beach side in Pedasi is quite interesting. You can find almost everything you would want and need in Pedasi. There are also a lot of expats living in there. The main activities in Pedasi are fishing, snorkeling, surfing and diving. There are a lot of hotels and restaurants there, too. Just like other small towns, they do not have a hospital but they have a very good clinic that can assist you quickly during emergencies. If you really need care in a hospital, you may go to Las Tablas, which is about 45 minutes away from Pedasi by car. Pedasi is a very nice place. They keep it very clean and neat; it is not messy at all.
One thing that some may find a disadvantage of living in Pedasi is the heat. It is very hot over there because it is at sea level. Pedasi is in the Azuero Peninsula, which tends to be a really hot area of the country of Panama. If you are the type of person who is not bothered with the hot climate, then you will be fine in Pedasi.
