There’s a complimentary fitness center, plenty of beach and sun as well as a fully functional spa for those who need to relax and unwind after a round of golf.
Shopping – One of the best aspects of Coronado is the fact that it is one of the oldest resort communities in Panama. It has grown into a Mecca for shopping with both high and low end places to find souvenirs and everyday items. You can shop at a local market on one street and then head to the shopping plaza for a wide variety of shops to spend your money at with everything else in between. If you plan to rent a beach house or apartment, there are many grocery stores to choose from to stock the panty.
Dining – If you’re a foody like many travelers, then you don’t have to worry about finding some of the best restaurants in the area. Coronado boasts a wide range of dining choices from bistros that are located right on the beach to fine dining. Those who are on a budget can find a wide range of fast food places and mom and pop shops where the cuisine is on the cheaper side. Again, there are many different types of food shops and grocery stores for those who prefer to cook their own food and dine at home.
No matter what your preference, laying in the sun and playing in the ocean or golfing 18 holes before sitting down to a 5 star meal, Coronado has something for you. There is a great deal of history to the city as it is one of the oldest beach communities in Panama. You can even find a hospital in the city in case there is an unfortunate accident or if regular medical treatment is a necessity. That’s much better than having to travel an hour to Panama City to get checked out.
Coronado is so popular that many tourists come back year after year or they buy property and retire to a life of fun in sun!
