Large Titled Coastal Estate size lot in great location in desirable Big Creek near Paunch Beach. This lot sits off the main road with private access road that makes it feel like an estate but is right across from the ocean. It is only a 10-minute drive to all that Bocas Town has to offer. It is along the bus route from Bocas Town to Bluff Beach. This nearly acre lot (.93) gives you all the room you need to build your perfect Bocas getaway home. Several great restaurants nearby to this Coastal Estate size lot and within walking distance of the new hospital that is under construction. Seller has several adjoining properties that can be combined to make your own mini farm or ranch.
There is a lot to do here in Bocas town near this Coastal Estate size lot even if it is the perfect place to do nothing. I watch the hammock hanging under the palapa get smaller and smaller as I start my day paddling out into the bay on my kayak early in the morning. The sea is smooth a glass and the air is fresh and cool. No speed boats this early. I go about a mile offshore where there is another smaller island, Solarte. At the close tip of the island of Solarte is a place called hospital point. It is where the hospital actually used to be back in the Chiquita banana days. For many years now, it has been a private residence, however in the small bay off the coast is one of the best nearby snorkel spots. I brought my mask and snorkel, so I tie up on shore and take a short swim for a peak at the myriads of fish and sea life that live on this incredible underwater wall. I dry in the sun, then paddle back to go to work in my “office.” This means connecting my laptop to the wireless connection on the dock looking out over the clear blue Caribbean water and doing my “online dues” that allows me to live this incredible life. It is Tuesday, so I take a break around mid-day to ride my bike to the vegetable stand and grocery store. It is not very far and my bike has a basket on it to carry the groceries. At the meat and fish markets, I pick up fresh chicken breast for $1.35 a pound, or a filete of the fresh fish of the day, usually Corvina for $2 a pound or mahi or tuna for around $7 a pound. Then on to the fresh fruit and vegetable stand where I fill my sack with my favorites for around $5. It always includes ripe papaya or pineapple a couple of avocados as well as delicious sweet peppers, potatoes, onion, tomatoes and cilantro, Panama’s version of cilantro. Some weeks the passion fruit is irresistible whether we make delicious smoothies or mix it with our favorite local rum, Abuelo. I always take time to chat if I see someone I know in the street (and I always do), then in the afternoon there is laundry and cleaning to supervise at the guest houses we run to be ready for the soon to be arriving guests. This week they are a couple from Maine on their first visit and some students vacationing from Holland. The evening could prove to be very interesting when we chat with them. Bocas also boast some of the most well-prepared fish I have ever eaten. The options are plentiful, but we choose El Refugio tonight, a charming restaurant on the water run by Catherine a long time expat, where a meal of fresh tuna, local vegetables and rice with a good glass of wine or great margarita will set you back about $25 per person. Or we could go to the local place, Don Chichos on the main street and eat a heaping plate of chicken or pork, rice, beans and petacones (delicious fried plantains) for $2.75.
Give Anne Michelle a call and come to Bocas del Toro and fall in love. See this idyllic Coastal Estate size lot.
