Directions to Pedasi and the Azuero Peninsula
Pedasí, the tourism center in Azuero, benefits from being the birthplace of the first woman president of Panama, Mireya Moscoso (1999-2004), who embellished the town and built new recreational facilities, among other works. Now Pedasí is the most beautiful town in Panama - with a low profile, no ugly commercial signs, and a friendly population where Panamanians relax on their terraces while tourists explore restaurants, businesses and beaches to eat, surf and fish .
Pedasí himself has a good beach - Playa del Toro. Some activities near the beach include fishing, snorkeling, horseback riding, and whale watching in certain seasons. In addition Pedasí is only 30 minutes from Playa Venao-one of the best beaches for surfing in Central America.
The Azuero Peninsula has attracted several celebrities, including Hollywood stars and other influential individuals who have purchased large properties such as nature reserves, exclusive destinations or as an investment. It has three resort-type residential communities: Azueros, the communities in front of the beach of Andromeda and Costa Pedasí. Azuero is also famous for its religious festivals that come from the Spanish colonial era.
Many villages in this area have churches from the XVII-XVIII centuries. They also have one of the best celebrations of Carnival, in Las Tablas-a vibrant and exciting event. Life in the interior of the country, in the Azuero Peninsula, has not changed much since the last century. Visitors love the quiet rhythm of the area. They are all very friendly and the prices are low.
The town of Chitre, on the road to Pedasi, is a good place to do your shopping-it has large supermarkets, hardware stores, cinemas, 3-star hotels, restaurants, etc. Here is a comfortable mix between the urban world and traditional. You can see people mounted on horseback, while some merchants speak furiously on their cell phones.
