Enjoy the tranquility of coastal Panama in "The Gliding Damselfly", our beautiful, modern flat in Buenaventura.  Overlooking the laguna (with boats for guests), your private view is free from nearby buildings (rare!), and you are 5 minutes from the sandy beach.  Relax by the pool (2 min walk) while the kids play on the waterslide, or unwind at El Faro, a luxurious pool lounge with gourmet cuisine. Buenaventura is the most exclusive resort in Panama, and all its amenities are yours to be enjoyed.

The space
The Gliding Damselfly is an impeccable and well-furnished 2nd floor flat (elevator accessible) which is located in a beautiful and tranquil area overlooking a laguna. It is a 5 minute drive to the beach. Its location is a rare find in Buenaventura, with private terrace views uninterrupted by nearby buildings. It is perfectly situated for families and couples to luxuriate in the calm tropical breeze. The kitchen is well equipped, and all appliances are high quality. The internet is very fast.

There are 3 bedrooms (King; Queen; Bunk [Queen + Double] and Trundle [Queen], all with full en-suite bathrooms. There is a fourth bedroom off the kitchen (cuarto de servicio) with a double bunk bed and full en-suite bathroom. All beds offer luxurious, high quality cotton sheets. In the kitchen you will find top of the line dishwasher, stove, and refrigerator with ice and filtered water service. A spacious deck opens out to a view of mango trees and the laguna that can be taken in as you dine outside, lounge in the hammock, or stretch out on the patio couch.

Imagine: you sip a cold drink in the hammock, while you watch your partner picking mangos from the trees out front. The kids come back from the pool, and you decide to go to the beach. But before you get there, everyone is hungry, so you go to El Faro, the pool lounge, instead. You relax in a cabana, order grilled fish, and the kids frolick in the pool in front of you. After lunch, you wander down the pool to the beach and jump in the waves. That evening, you relax on the terrace and grill dinner, looking out over the palms lit at night. You sleep deeply in luxurious cotton sheets...

Where you’ll be

Buenaventura, El Chirú, Coclé, Panama

Our flat, "The Gliding Damselfly," is located in the Laguna neighborhood of Buenaventura - the most green and tranquil neighborhood in all of Buenaventura. All of Buenaventura is very safe and secure, whether you are walking at night or during the day. With a large laguna at its center, it is easy to walk (and bike) around for kids and adults alike.

Within easy walking distance is the kiddie pool with waterslide, adult pool and community gathering area, kayak and paddleboat dock, mango trees to harvest your breakfast (July - Sept), and playground. A short walk or shorter drive brings you to the sports club, which has a semi-olympic size pool, sauna, tennis courts, basketball courts, and soccer (football) field. They give classes that include yoga, rhythmic gymnastics, tennis and swimming. Arrangements can be made for private classes as well. If you come during Panamanian school breaks or summer (Dec - Feb), they also have fantastic kids camps with activities such as horse riding, rock climbing, swimming, and tennis.
