What is the make up of people in Coronado?

I am thinking about going to Coronado for a visit. I am looking for a place to eventually retire to and Coronado looks like a beautiful town with lots of amenities. I'm having a hard time though telling if this is just a retirement community or if there is a good mix of people. By this i mean young, old, families and single people.

Are there also places that ex-pats hang out like sports bars or beach front bars?

Thanks for all your help.

Check out the Yahoo groups: Americans in Panama and Panama Forum. Also, check out www.playacommunity.com.

I think you'll find the make up is mostly two eyes, two arms, two legs, torso, hands and feet. Some are made up with other features, too.

Its been a cople of years since I have been to Coronado, it has grown quite a bit, it is the closest beach community to Panama City, but mostly marketed to ex-pats, it has its own groceries, stores and restaurants but nothing like waht is available in PC, however the city is about 50 minutes away so not too far.

I have a co-worker in Florida who is looking at the area for retirement - he wants an ex-pat community that his wife will feel comfortable in, they don't speak Spanish, i thought it would be a good area for them.

I dont think you will find many families with kids there, at least not ex-pats, maybe on vacation but not living full-time. Dont think the area has private shcools that many ex-pats would want to send their kids to - mostly a retirement area, vacation homes , and locals with money escaping the city on the weekends.
