About the area

A 40 minute drive from here will take you to the lovely mountain town of El Valle which has many different activities and sights to see. The drive to El Valle is a scenic hilly road with many fruit stands and craftworks on the way. The town itself is a bit cooler than the coast on most days. El Valle boasts a fascinating Sunday Market with arts, crafts, plants and food items. The natives come down from the mountains on those days to sell their wares and the Guna (formerly called Kuna) Indians also bring their world famous molas. There are interesting hikes to areas with beautiful views, waterfalls, and historical points with petroglyphs. If butterflies are your cup of tea, El Valle boasts the number one attraction in Panama--The Butterfly Haven, where you can experience butterflies all around you in a caged area feeding on beautiful flowers. A zoo is also located in El Valle; it is the only place in the world where you can see a golden frog. All are gone from the wild. For those who golf, there are several golf courses in the beach areas. Surfers, paddle boarders and kayakers can rent here in El Palmar. There are surf lessons for those who are interested. Yoga/Zumba/Pilates is offered in Coronado. There is great fishing and scuba diving/snorkeling in many of the areas in Panama. Many restaurants are found in the beach areas with varied cuisines. Panama offers a great assortment of organized tours to jungle, beach, mountain, lake and indigenous areas. Tarzana's Beachfront Casas--Additional info The drive from Tocumen International airport is approximately 2 hours. It is a 2500 M2 (.6 acre) seaside property, 30 meters from the ocean's edge in a small Pacific beach town of El Palmar, very near to Coronado, a center of business, shopping and entertainment. Just 8 steps down from the edge of the property, your feet touch the warm tropical sand. Many of the weekdays you have the beach to yourself or just a few others. Low tide affords you long walks on the beach. El Palmar is good for surfing, boogie boarding, paddleboarding and kayaking. Tarzana's Beachfront Casas is an eco-oriented property. No smoking 50 feet from the buildings. This gorgeous property boasts 150 feet of beachfront, colorful flowering plants and a tremendous amount of shade from the large majestic trees. Many of my guests park themselves there under the shade for hours to gaze out at the sea. Calming ocean waves play their tunes all day long for you to enjoy! First month and deposit is required for reservation. It is best to have a cell phone while here in Panama. You can buy an inexpensive phone and get minute cards in many shops in Coronado or in Panama City. Or you can get a chip plus a minute card if your phone is unlocked. There is a CLARO company cell tower in El Palmar and it is the recommended cell company for the area for the best reception. Contact my property manager Kristie for more info.

La Casa Palmar is a wonderful, relaxing, and beautiful place to get away! The lovely touches in design, inspired by the owner's artistic talent, make it more than just a beach house. Her art work adds to the ambience in making it feel like a home. The beautifully maintained grounds are right on the beach, and the lush vegetation in the area remind you that you are in a tropical paradise. I cannot say enough about how relaxing and rejuvenating my stay was! Beachside restaurants within walking distance serve yummy, fresh, local food. Be sure to try the Corvina al Ajillo (sea bass with garlic)! The area has much to offer: hiking, water sports and surfing near by, and a lovely beach for swimming and walking, so you can be as active as you like, or just veg out in a hammock on the veranda, listening to the waves. I've travelled the world, and can honestly say that my time at Casa Palmar is one of the best vacations I have ever had.

“Best way to unwind and relax!!”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful setting. La Casa Palmar was totally clean, inviting and tastefully decorated. We had good beds, hot water, a large, well- stocked kitchen, very nice dining and living room areas and a pretty bathroom. Access to a washer and dryer is just outside the house. It is a relaxing paradise: take a walk on the beach of the Pacific Ocean or try a surfing class at the surf school you can easily walk to. We enjoyed the 2 verandas with a hammock and incredible views of the ocean and impeccably well- manicured lawn. An then there were the beautiful sunrises! You can eat or have a glass of wine outside or inside. You'll have the same great ocean views either way. Chrisse went out of her way to make us feel welcome. She is friendly and very helpful and even invited us to yoga classes with her. Do not miss an opportunity to stay at La Casa Palmar!

Owner's reply: Lois, Thank you for the great review and for coming to visit. So happy that you enjoyed the stay at La Casa Palmar at Tarzana's Beachfront Casas. Safe travels and let us know if we can offer you a stay in the future :)
