Imagine having a cold cerveza form the balcony, enjoying the view of the city, and suddenly a cruise ship is spotted passing through the canal. Not hard to imagine because it has happened to me. The view will take your breath away. The Balcony is partially covered so the sun bather or the shade lover can enjoy the warm breeze and the views.
Tucan Country Club & Resort is Located just 15 minutes from Panama City's shopping, five star International Restaurants, casinos, night life, museums, festivals and architectural wonders. So you get the serenity of the rain forest, yet are close to all the action Panama City brings.
Two guests will enjoy unlimited free green fees at Tucan's par 72 championship golf course, designed to challenge golfers of all levels with its hilly terrain. From several tee boxes, watch ships transiting the canal, the Panama City skyline, the rain forest covered mountains and the Bridge of Americas which separates North America from South America. The views are truly stunning from this delightful property.
Explore the nearby beaches of Veracruz including Playa Bonita, just 15 minutes away. Hike the pristine rainforest with a guide who will show you how to identify the sound of the toucan and other birds as well as the monkey who will occasionally venture out to steal your golf ball. While golfing, spot the mama Cayman with a baby on her back. Look for sloths, cara-caras (hawks), and shy gato-solo (looks like a cross between a monkey and raccoon) while you search for your lost ball.

I am in my mid 40's and I have enjoyed visiting Panama over the past few years, probably making over 30 trips from the USA. I currently own this 2 bedroom Condo at Tucan and I am also in the process of buying another condo across the Isthmus. I am very excited about making Panama a part of my life. The picture is of me enjoying some fishing on Lake Gatun, just a short 30 minute drive away. Renting a boat for the day with a couple of friends, we enjoyed being in the middle of nowhere with the fish all to ourselves, it truly was spectacular.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2009
I chose to buy at Tucan Country Club & Resort because I wanted to have a place that was both close to Panama City, but also quiet and safe. I love to play both Golf & Tennis and this was also something that is offered. Lastly I just love the relaxing feel of sitting on the patio watching the ships pass through the canal with the Panama City Skyline in the background.
Guests who stay at my condo receive unlimited golf, 10% off of food at the club restaurant & 10% off at the pro shop.
Very nice place and a great sense of security, which we appreciated a lot as we have been already robbed in Panama a week before. It was as listed, no surprises. Well located in Panama City (having a car available), close to the center of town but far enough to be quiet and with beatiful views.
Beautiful condo and very nice resort. Comfortable and with everything you need for a vacation rental. Very good the air conditioning system (thanks, as it is really hot there) and very nice the balcony. Everything was fine with Chris, the owner, and specially with Graciela, the person in charge there in Panama, that was very nice and helpful.
This is a lovely condo, with a view that is absolutely incredible! I was here for a month and loved it. The facility is very, very quiet and peaceful, on weekends it pickups up only a little. Graciela, the contact person, was super responsive, always available via phone or email, and quite helpful. The owner was easy as pie to deal with, I've never had a rental transaction be so uncomplicated. The golf was wonderful! The staff at the golf course all made me feel welcome and it is a good and well thought out course!
Now some downsides of the the condo: since I spent most of my time on the very spacious balcony, (reading a history of the canal while watching it!) including a daily long yoga session, it REALLY NEEDS A NEW PATIO SET! Forget the umbrella which is not usable in the wind, something new and not rusty. The walls need painting or at least some touch up work. A few larger pictures would add so much as there is no interest in terms of the walls. Just a bit more interest in the decor, the structure of the condo itself (granite, etc.) is lovely.
All in all though, it is a wonderful place with a superb view plus a golf course!!! I would not hesitate to rent again or to recommend it.
The place itself was nice, however quite a bit of maintenance that needs to be done. The ceilings/walls and other areas in the condo has very obvious water leaks. The kitchen needs to better equipped- need more pots & pans. It was great having a place with AC, after being out all day in the Panama heat!! The WIFI in the condo was HORRIBLE !!! There were 4 of us there for a month and we could not all use wifi at the same time. We had to keep resetting the router, quite frustrating & annoying. Chris I think you need to purchase a more updated router with more bandwidth. The condo was nice & clean. Graciela was very nice & accommodating. The grounds were nicely manicured, however, the golf clubs are very old and outdated.
All in all we had a nice time, and the condo was very comfortable.
Chris the owner and Graciela the point of contact in Panama went out of their way to make the booking and check in process great. Both were professional and helpful. Graciela even suggested I get groceries before I got to the condo as there are no supermarkets close by.
The condo worked very well for our needs. My husband and I travel frequently to Panama and enjoyed having a full kitchen, semi-private patio, view of the city and Panama Canal, and a washer/dryer. The condo is located within the beautiful grounds of the Tucan Country Club and Resort which made it a very relaxing place to return to after a busy day in the city.
The only reason I did not give the property five stars is that it is time for a bit of sprucing up. The furniture on the patio is very worn, and the umbrella is broken and moldy. The control panel for the oven has come off the stove and is leaning against the wall. It was a bit of a game to figure out which button to push to set the oven. As mentioned in another review, the master bath is very slow to drain. Also, it is time to paint the walls due to wear and some water damage. The bathrooms were very clean, but overall the condo needs a deep cleaning. When we arrived, we swept, dusted, and straightened up to give it a fresh feel. But, for the price and by Panama standards, this was a great place for our ten days in Panama.
I would recommend this condo to my friends because overall it provided a great home base while in Panama!
We really loved our stay at the Tucan resort. The condo was as shown as the listing description and the photos.The owner and his Panama representative was really helpfull and rapid to set our problems when we had some.If you love golf and the beautiful climat, we recommend the place.
We arrived in Panama with an unexpected disability....my hip arthritis had flared up. No problem at this wonderfully located condo. Away from the crowd, not many steps, and we had our rental car at the ready.( Note that a wheelchair would not have worked.) There was an ice pack in the fridge to help with inflammation after a day out. The icemaker was ever-ready to help produce rum and cokes. One suitcase lost by the airline, and the security at the gate held it for us when it finally arrived. They also made several attempts to call the lost luggage department on our behalf (remember it was Christmas!) Very nice and friendly guys. You would need some Spanish to talk to them, or just call Graciela.
Westland Mall not far away (the opposite direction from the city) to buy a new wardrobe while awaiting the lost luggage. Note: the highway is divided for miles and miles by a cement wall....takes some thought to turn around! Yes the city is a little chaotic and I recommend a GPS....there is software available if you search online.
Wifi was great and the grounds beautiful to walk, drive, or cart. The Restaurant Horoko and the Spa seemed be closed anytime we checked....perhaps Christmas season,
More specific info about hours for Horoko and the spa would have been nice, unless we just missed it.
One of the marks of a great place is how it handles the unexpected traveller pitfalls. (Yes, in Canada we spell traveller with two Ls) This place succeeded on all counts. Most appreciated was Graciela waiting for us as we were late, later, later....trying to report and locate the lost luggage.
The golf deal would have been amazing, had we ever gotten there, but we did eat at the cafe once.
Great place Chris! Hope to come back for golf one day, but DANG those shoes are big!
