Cozy 2-br apt on a small, quiet, working farm with a few head of cattle, avocado orchard, bananas and plantains, a reforested area, ideal for family with a couple of kids or four adults. Abundant, pure water (hot and cold) from our own well, working fireplace. A quiet retreat outside a small agricultural community in Western Panamá. Full kitchen with all utensils, modern bathroom.

The space
A self-contained apartment: 2 b/r, l/r with fireplace, fully equipped kitchen with dining area, bathroom with tiled shower and the usual conveniences (no tub). Abundant hot and cold water from our deep well.

Front porch with rockers and settees, facing our beautiful front yard. Hammock in the garden. We have ADSL Internet service, available in the rental unit via Wi-Fi signal.

For longer term tenants who wish to buy a TV, we have a Sky-TV satellite dish and receive foreign TV from US, Latin America, Spain, France, Germany.

Guest access
The house is in the middle of the farm, more than 200 meters back from the road. Access to Volcán, shops, etc., is via an asphalt road, 2 km from the main street of Volcán and 3 km from the center of the village, about an hour from the provincial capital of David.

Other things to note
One traveler commented, "the only place on our Central American trip that turned out to be prettier and more pleasant that the advertising photos indicated..."

Great place to write a book!

Location

Volcan, Provincia de Chiriquí, Panama

Volcán is a plain little farming town, growing perhaps faster than we'd like, but we are outside of town, surrounded by a horseshoe of hills, and the setting is completely rural. There are several restaurants in town, featuring Panamanian home cooking, Mexican, Italian, etc., very inexpensive by US or European standards, but this is a quiet village most enjoyed by folks who enjoy a simple setting.

For those contemplating retirement in this area, our apt. is a great home base for exploring the area over the course of a month or two, highly recommended before making a final decision.
