Property Description


Ocean view property for sale, located along the main road between Santa Catalina and Lagartero Beach. 


The property is just a short 500 meters from Lagartero Beach. Lagartero Beach is a relatively virgin, long and sandy beach where one can take long walks or horse rides down miles of virgin beach front with nothing but green trees and shrubs along the beach. This beach is popular for its abundant supply of clams and amazing sea shells one can colect during beach walks. Lagartero Beach is slowly becoming developed with boutique eco-hotels and a few nice homes along the beach. 


With 1.2 hectares (2.9 acres), and about 20 meters of commercial road frontage, this property is ideal for a small mixed use commercial & residential project with some homes and some commercial space along the road front. This area desperately needs a small commercial plaza with a few locals such as a small convenient store, etc. 


The property can easily be sub-divided into multiple smaller lots or kept as one lot, the zoning allows for both options. It could also be used as a small farm on the flat area near the road front, with a few homes built on the back parts of the land where the ocean views are. 


The ocean views face south-east toward the Gulf of Montijo, and the islands of Gobernadora and Cebaco. The electric power lines run directly in front of the property. There is a small creek and natural spring that runs through the center of the property for easy access to spring well water. The property has a few nice trees but is mostly cleared, as it was once part of a cattle farm before. The property is completely fenced with the typical cattle fence, wood posts and barbed wire. 


The topography of the property is relatively flat at the road front entrance (about 1/4 of the total property area), with the creek running through the middle, and the back part (about 3/4 of the total property area) is terraced with 2 flat areas and 2 small hill tops that are ideal for building houses with ocean views. 


There is an internal 3 meter wide (10 feet) gravel / dirt road built from the main road front of the property entrance, all the way to the back of the property and it crosses the small creek where there is a drainage pipe with culverts built for the water to pass under the road. 


The price of this ocean view property is very inexpensive in comparison with other similar properties in this area, making it an attractive option for anyone seeking a bargain on a property with great residential and commercial development potential.

Santa Catalina

Santa Catalina is located in the province of Veraguas. It was once a sleepy fishing village that had been unexplored until the seventies. The location had been a secret kept by surfers in order to protect its exclusivity. Today it still maintains that exclusivity considering that it is still a relatively long drive to get to an ATM machine.

Santa Catalina is a tropical heaven offering world class surfing locations. The closest access point is Isla Coiba. The town has one main street that goes into the beach and here you can find boats that are used for fishing, surfing, and scuba diving enthusiasts.

Some of the most popular activities are:


One of the most popular sports carried out, as there exists some of the biggest waves that veteran surfers enjoy riding all through the year. Those who are still not yet experienced can visit Estero that has smaller waves that are consistent and easy to manage. It also has several surf camps doted all over the beach where one can easily horn their skills and rent boards.


It is common to view an army of seabirds diving for baitfish driven up by the huge schools of tuna fish. The typical weather condition and warm waters make it the perfect seasonal home for many sea creatures that are trying to escape the winters in both hemispheres giving action all through the year.

Scuba diving

Another activity that allows guests to view the spectacular range of the different types of fish that are numerous in number. The trips allow one to have a good view of eels, crabs, lobster, and other creatures that thrive on reefs, one also gets the chance to view the breath taking corals located at the bottom ranges. Some areas are still virtually unexplored and chances of being one of the first visitors are high which is something that cannot be mentioned about many areas of the world.

Eco tours

Eco tours are popular throughout the region and include day and night trips to and from the Coiba Island these are run by local businesses. Some of the activities include guided as well as own driven tours of the island using Kayaks provided by international companies in the area. The businesses also offer a variety of other services including yoga massages. An advance planning and booking is advised for best pleasure and relaxation.


Bird watchers have the chance to observe an endless assortment of birds within their natural unspoilt habitats in and around Coiba Island. Some of the most popular choices include the scarlet macaw and parrots that are easy to spot among the hills. The island itself is a UNESCO protected zone and is part of a national park.
