Penonomé is 1.5 hours from the project by land, and lies amidst the humid lowlands, with the lush hills of the highlands to the north and the Azuero Peninsula to the northeast.
- A great spot to take in the local culture is in the town centre, where a pleasantly shaded plaza faces the whitewashed Catedral de Penonomé.
- The plaza has a gazebo and a string of benches, which provide the perfect place to soak up the leisurely pace of Panamanian life.
- The small foothill town of La Pintada, only 12 km northwest of Penonomé, boasts a quaint artisans’ market and a thriving cigar factory. The town’s current upliftment and development will guarantee any visitor’s return.
- Parque Nacional Omar Torrijos, known locally as El Copé, is 53 km west Penonomé.
- The park is difficult to access but has some of the most well-preserved forests in all of Panama.
- It runs right through the Continental Divide, boasting montane forest on its Pacific side and humid tropical forest on its Caribbean side.
The La Pintada development consists of 500 houses/apartments, with associated commercial units, recreational facilities, a school and clinic. The first houses will be available to occupy in Q1 2019. Employees have the option to rent and or buy property as an investment.
