Visit the Gulf of Chiriqui, your easily accessible vacation home destination.
There are daily flights from all over the world that land at Tocumen International Airport in Panama City. From Panama City, you can take one of six daily 50 minute flights to the city of David in the Province of Chiriqui. Once you land in David, you are just minutes from the sparkling waters of the unspoiled Gulf.
There are several ports along the Chiriqui coast, and many local businesses that offer scuba excursions, fishing charters, and whale watching tours. The port of Pedregal is only a couple of miles from the David airport. There you can charter a boat for your favorite maritime adventure. Sport fisherman have long favored the small fishing village of Boca Chica, an hour’s drive from David, as the launching point for their big game fishing adventures.
For those who would like to explore the area’s real estate opportunities, you can take a relaxing voyage, first through rare mangroves rich with wildlife, then out into the open waters of the Gulf of Chiriqui to Isla Palenque, the site of a world class eco resort and residence community planned to open in 2012. Phase One Isla Palenque homes are now available at pre-construction prices, and prospective home buyers are welcome to tour the island with a member of the Isla Palenque sales team. You can enjoy the many beaches, explore the jungle -- even hike to see the home sites on this prime Panama real estate like island property. Contact The Resort at Isla Palenque to arrange your island tour.
Construction is in progress to expand David’s Enrique Malek Airport (DAV) into a larger international facility to accommodate the growing popularity of this emerging destination. The expansion will soon allow for increased international traffic and larger aircraft, making possible direct regular flights from the U.S. and Canada. The airport, currently receiving up to 1,800 passengers per week, has already added regular flights to other Central American countries like Costa Rica, as well as charter flights from the U.S., and may attract a major U.S. carrier in the future.
