Playa Coronado, located about 80 km from Panama City, is the most developed beach area in Panama.
The reality is that crime is everywhere, in every corner of the globe. Common sense goes a long way. Is Panama safe? Is it safe for single women? Is Panama safe for families? Yes, yes, and yes. There are many single people (men and women) and families who live comfortably and without incident in the Playa Coronado area. Some of these people live in condo buildings, some live in areas with 24 hour security, while others live in a house with a gated entrance.
Just 60 minutes outside of Panama City, Coronado is Panama’s most luxurious, modern, and well-equipped beach community.
Residents of Coronado have more shops, restaurants, and supermarkets than they know what to do with. Residents are rarely bored, given the 18-hole golf course, equestrian center, illustrious “black diamond” beaches, and fun-loving expat community.
Coronado is also considered the safest place to live in Panama.
For foreigners, it’s the place to relocate and retire. For Panamanians, it’s the place to see and be seen on the weekends. This comes with the benefit of having an established expat and executive community, but it also means you’re more likely to be sharing the beach.
