Where to stay for a month in Panama.

We are a near-retirement age couple. We are very active and love to walk. We would like to spend a month in Panama. We would like to avoid having to rent a car. So we are looking for somewhere we can walk to grocery stores and restaurants. If we are not within walking distance of a beach, we would like a pool. A condo or a small house with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms would be great, if the price is right, otherwise one bedroom is sufficient. WIFI is needed and access to a washer/dryer.

What area of Panama would you suggest we look into?

We are looking for something around $1500.00 per month. We would like to be within walking distance of a town that would provide a grocery store, restaurants, bank, pharmacy etc. If not within walking distance, if there is good public transportation or the cab fare is cheap that is okay too. We prefer a quieter location, with lots of opportunity for long walks. Thanks.

Coronado has all you need except it will be a walk to the stores in the very very hot weather. Better to take a cab or the local buses the workers use within Coronado.

You could check out www.flipkey.com, www.panamapremierrentals.com

and www.panamastays.com, www.panamarentalsolutions.com, http://4rentpanama.com/

as well as VRBO.com

Search there for a condo or small home within the gates of Coronado. You didn't mention when you are planning to come, and right now til May is busy busy busy and prices are higher now because of it.

Thank you for the information. I will check out the websites. We plan to come for a month or two next winter, February to March.

Panamanians refer to this as their summer! Panama is probably more defined by dry season / wet season.
