Playa Barqueta Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Discover Panama’s best kept secret in your private corner condo! Listen to nearby Pacific Ocean waves as you drift off to sleep. Watch the sun rise as you comb the beach for sea seeds and sand dollars.
Go in search of howler monkeys, laughing falcons, spectacled caimans, wood storks and iguanas. Discover fresh Olive Ridley turtle tracks in front of your condo and watch newly hatched turtles being released next door at Marsiel’s restaurant. Relax on your covered front porch as you search the horizon for whales, dolphins and stingrays. Feel the “breezes of the ocean”….Las Brisas del Mar.
We invite you to enjoy this spacious, new, first floor, private end-unit oceanfront home away-from-home. The Las Brisas del Mar beachfront condominium complex is adjacent to the Las Olas Resort and sits directly on the Pacific Ocean at Playa la Barqueta in the Republic of Panama. You can view some of the most breathtaking sunsets in the world, right from the covered patio or from the Master Suite!
Enjoy swimming in the large, multi-level pool after a dip in the ocean, a long beach walk (the beach is 8 miles long in either direction and much of it is part of a sea turtle reserve!) or a breezy beach bicycle ride. The nearby mangrove lagoon system provides excellent birding opportunities and endless kayaking.
Kayak and bicycles excursions are available. We are avid cyclists and kayakers and can help with planning activities during your stay.
The Master Suite is Ocean-side! This suite features a luxurious King-sized Bed, private bathroom with shower, walk-in closet and double vanity.

If you don’t feel like cooking, take advantage of three different beach restaurants that serve everything from fresh-caught fish and local yucca to passion fruit sorbets. The Dining Room in Las Brisas del Mar #704 presents a perfect view of the Pacific Ocean surf while you dine at a table for six.

Why The Owner chose Playa Barqueta
We used to vacation in Troncones, Mexico which was very similar to Playa La Barqueta. When we arrived here late in 2008 we discovered the bottom corner unit available for sale and made the decision to buy it. We absolutely love it and relish the privacy. We installed a swinging gate on our patio which allows us to enter the condo from the sidewalk AND its only a 30 second walk to the restaurant next door. We have extensively explored the area by bicycle and have kayaked the refuge lagoon system and have placed maps on our website of some nearby kayak and bike rides to take. We hope others discover this wonderful paradise and can get out and explore the Barqueta Refuge next door.
What makes this condo unique
We are avid cyclists and kayakers. After spending 2 months here we have barely touched upon all the possible kayak and bicycle opportunities. Richard has been actively recording all his GPS tracklogs while cycling and kayaking and can provide GPS coordinates to many landmarks. We enjoy a late afternoon ride to the La Siesta for a cool drink and to dance or continue a few miles further to the Tablado for a fruit smoothie. The people here are the friendliest we have ever met and we feel totally safe wherever we travel.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Nina:We had a great time at your condo. Lynda, Jen, Jon and Brook lived in the pool for most of the time.You have done a great job on making your place at Las Olas very "friendly" for anyone staying there. Well thought out and nice touches on every turn. Good instructions, most small amenities - come with food and bathing suits and not much else to worry about.Absolutely - we will be back for another 'fix' soon. KenBoquete, Panama
