Pedasi, Panama

In a golden corner of Panama’s Azuero Peninsula sits the town of Pedasi. It’s a town with a village atmosphere—large enough to feel like you can live there, yet small enough to make you feel like an active stakeholder in a thriving community.

Pedasi is often considered one of Panama’s most authentic and charming small towns. Located right at the southeast corner of the peninsula, Pedasi is within a few minutes of numerous white-sand beaches and rocky headlands, with numerous sandy coves and hidden coastal delights nearby.

Pedasi caters day-to-day needs with small and medium sized supermarkets, two bakeries, and a dulceria (Dulceria Yely, a well-known sweets and cake shop), several restaurants, bed and breakfasts, and hotels. The region is primarily agricultural, and it is possible to find high-quality fresh produce. In addition, Pedasi has a public health clinic, two banks, a public library, and a small shop selling surf and beach wear.

Pedasi was previously a featured destination in the Overseas Living Letter. We make all past issues of the Overseas Living Letter available for purchase as an individual Country Retirement Report.
