Added to all of this is the soon to be completed Second tower or 2nd apartment complex. Very near completion, Nueva Gorgona Bahia Playa Serena will soon become NOT only the current new beautiful apartment complex, but instead, two complexes sharing many wonderful amenities IN ADDITION a second infinity pool (both joined together) and a large elegant formal restaurant.
Our work, professions, have taken us around the world for many years. However, once touching down in Panama in 1996, we never wished to leave. We feel blessed for having lived in this vibrant land, along with it's incredibly tolerant people, and vast economic and travel opportunnities Eventually, our retirement years will be in Panama.
Lee and Eira Koupal purchased this apartment in 2012
We felt fortunate in purchasing property with Gruop Corcione years ago. Upon learning that this same construction group was making plans to build an incredible apartment complex in Nueva Gorgona beach, we could not resist the tempation to purchase an apartment. It is NOT only the beauty of the apartments and the location by the beach-Pacific Ocean, but the total surrounding area, the ambiance of it all, which warmed our hearts toward this land. For all who have the opportunity to visit the Coronado area along with the vast forests, mountains, rivers, lakes and the pacific ocean and beyond, you are indeed very fortunate.
In addition to being a luxury apartment, our Nueva Gorgona condo in itself has it all of the modern conveniences, and, located directly in the heart of a beautiful, local village on one side along with the ocean beach directly in front, it is very difficult to beat this serene atmosphere. The apartment complex amenities boast a beautiful infinity pool, 3 Jacuzzis, saunas, a steam room, massages, pedicures, manicures, complete weight room with all modern machines, a wonderful social area, party room, sun deck, mini bar, mini restaurant. In time, the second tower will be complete, making our apartment complex (one) and the new apartment complex tower (two) an incredible vacation experience in its own right. With two tower complexes, two infinity pools, a large, elegant restaurant, spacious bar settings and twice the amenities, Nueva Gorgona Bahia Playa Serena is the newest, most modern apartment setting in Gorgona.
The local surrounding benefits are limitless. It's all a matter of perspective. Everyone has different needs, wants and desires. From visiting the malls and shopping centers to boating, camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, skiing, whale watching, pursuits are seemingly limitless. How about just curling up, relaxing with a good book and glass of wine in the apartment or drifting off to dream land in the infinity pool? Nueva Gorgona Bahia Playa Serena is a remarkable vacation destination.
My wife and I have been staying at this apartment with our 3 daughters aged 17-21 and loved every minute here.
The complex is finished and there is no longer any construction. The apartment is spacious and very well appointed with everything you could want for a home away from home. The views amazing. The pool area is beautiful and never too crowded, never had to struggle to get lounge chairs. Rey supermarket is a modern store open 24 hours with anything you could want. Definitely recommend getting a car for your time here. The owner Lee is very responsive and really cares that you enjoy your time here. All in all nothing bad to say except we have to leave her tomorrow.
The Bahia is a world class intimate condo/resort the second building was under construction but once that is done the property will be heaven on earth! Its a very sophisticated place and quite a surprise to arrive at something so lavish after driving through such a modest community to get there. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!!!
I lived in Panama for about 8 years and sold real estate in the city and on the beaches. Bahia Playa Serena is by far the best place to stay for vacation. It provides the perfect balance of Panamanian culture and amenities, without taking away a peaceful secluded feeling, which is what vacation should be ALL about.... relaxing... The apartment is tastefully furnished and provides more than enough for what is needed for a weeks vacation or even a month, if you are lucky enough to stay that long. However, the most spectacular assets to the apartment and the building are the gorgeous ocean views and beach front location.....I highly recommend this apartment!
Hope you enjoy your stay and beautiful, vibrant Panama

My husband, 2 yr old daughter and I stayed here for a week last month. We had a great time and the condo had everything we needed and met our expectations. We had the beach to ourselves all week and used the pool quite a bit as well. There are no restaurants within walking distance, so we stocked up at the nearby grocery store and were well prepared for meals and snacks. I would definitely recommend renting a car as you will need to drive anywhere you need to go. The town of Coronado is a 5 min drive and has anything you may need (nice grocery store, fast food, restaurants). There is a poolside cabana that serves some food/drinks/cocktails but they are only open on Sat. and Sun. The only downfall to our visit at the condo was the construction going on at the adjoining building. It didn't affect access to the pool, but the workers and construction was ongoing throughout weekdays, so it posed a noise disturbance on any intentions as far as relaxing poolside. They also had partitions set up to block the view of the infinity pool to the beach and at one point we had to ask for someone to come and unlock the access to the beach area bc construction had turned off the key fob to the gate entry. In Coronado, Cholos Camidas Mexicana came recommended for casual dining. We enjoyed tacos and a casual locals atmosphere. The owner is an American expat and friendly as well as accommodating - you will need directions as it is off the beaten path. Some other activities we enjoyed and can recommend: Miraflores Locks Visitor Center for viewing the Panama Canal (40min drive), The Amador Causeway (30 min drive) for shops, dining and an amazing view of the city across the bay, and Puta Culebra Nature Center along the Amador Causeway is an easy place to take children to see various native animal/marine habitats ($5 for non-residents $1 under 12 - cash only). We also chose to stay in Panama City our last night in Panama to get a city experience as well as easy access to the airport for our morning departure. The Trump Hotel is amazing if you get the chance to visit the city as well. We had a wonderful experience in Panama and the condo owners are great as well as management. They were all helpful during the planning of our trip and with any questions we had. There was a deduction on my rating due to construction (which was no fault to the owner) but I would recommend a weekend stay to avoid it, or when the building is complete if you plan to spend a lot of time at the pool.
A Vision of Nueva Gorgona in Panama
Our brand new apartment, “Nuevo Gorgona Bahia Playa Serena” is situated exactly one minute from the beach, i.e. the Pacific Ocean and is surrounded by a seeming mini world of its own.
Nueva Gorgona is a small town/village in itself, with local streets for strolling, walking, grocery shopping and frequenting some local restaurants, old, enduring and new. Four local grocery stores are within minutes of walking. Gorgeous hills and mountain views surround Nueva Gorgona and beyond!
Coronado is a town situated four miles west of Bahia Playa Serena, accommodating four shopping centers, great restaurants, sporting good stores, tours, ATM/cash withdrawl machines and much more. A newer cinema complex and shopping district is being added this year, quite possibly complete.
Our quaint area, west of Panama City, is host to truly unlimited activities and events for visiting tourists such as (but hardly limited to): Antiquing, antique stores, biking, boating, bird watching, botanical-tropical gardens, churches, cinemas, fishing, (salt water, freshwater) golf courses, horseback riding, jet skiing, mountain climbing, rafting, ruins, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, walking, water tubing, wild life and scenic tours of many descriptions, wind surfing, to say the very least! The opportunities grow and we cannot list all of them, here. Simply taking a scenic drive, heading out in any one direction is pleasure enough in many instances. One simply has to explore!
Playing the local lotto or lottery is fun, for the gambling minded.
From the Nuevo Gorgona area, a 35 minute drive east takes you to the town of Chorrera and the brand new “Westland” mall, recently opened and similar in size and scope to the attractive malls in Panama City, Panama, such as the Metro Mall, Multi Plaza Mall, Multi-Centro Mall and the Albrook mall. Now, even one more splendid, newly added 4 story mall has been built in the Paitilla/Punta Pacifica area in Panama City itself, an incredibly exclusive and beautiful area of Panama.
On safe and practical side of life: It is always a welcome feeling to know that an excellent-new-high quality emergency hospital is open 24/7, directly in Coronado.
Tourists visiting Panama receive free medical care during the initial 30 days of travel. Always have a photo i.d. and/or passport original or copy with you at all times, regardless of where you travel within Panama.
Also, please be aware that local police do stop cars for routine inspections, especially during the evening hours. Have all necessary documentation with you! However beautiful and awe inspiring Panama is, (and it is), laws are enforced for your protection.
