Why You'll Love It

Price reduced from $549K! Bocas Landmark Commercial Property in Bocas del Toro Panama

New on the market! Here is a golden opportunity to own an iconic building with an established main street tropical lifestyle business that is a landmark in Bocas Town.

Location:  Main Street, Isla Colon, across from the ferry dock.  Caribbean style landmark building purchased by the current owner in 2004 from Chiriqui Land Company/Chiquita.

This is a prime location lot between Main and 4th Street hence and has a huge delivery advantage of a back door loading dock. The island’s main ferry is directly across the street. The building is 191.47 square meters and the Titled property is 334.57 square meters which is larger than a standard city lot.

The property is currently the home to the well-known Super Gourmet Bocas, a full-service delicatessen serving the archipelago since 2001.  The business could be continued, sold, or expanded.  

​Imagine waking up to birdsong, pouring yourself a cup of locally grown coffee with your breakfast of tropical fruit, homemade yogurt, and farm-fresh eggs sitting on a warm, shady veranda during the middle of winter.

Perhaps your day includes a boat ride to a far-flung island to lay on the sandy beaches, sip cocktails, and eating fresh-caught seafood. Maybe it’s just a mundane afternoon in a small town stopping to chat with friendly faces, grabbing lunch with your Amigas at a restaurant with a deck built over the ocean, a surf session, happy hour with $1 national beers, and a yoga class.

“Heading to work” means taking a traffic-free commute along sandy beaches, lush jungle, and coconut palms to your small shop where travelers, locals, tourists, and ex-pats from around the globe come to shop, provision, and nourish themselves. Early evening means heading home in time to grab a quick snorkel session, ceviche, and winding down with some local chocolate and private Spanish lessons.
There is no more working for the weekend, going to a job you hate, saving up meager vacation hours to visit paradise… you are IN paradise!

Panama is an “up and coming” ex-pat destination in Central America. Politically stable, and economically affordable location, no excessive military forces, and a globally friendly nation; Panama fits the picture of an ideal location for living abroad. With several visa and residency options for ex-pats, retirees, and business owners, establishing yourself here for the long term is relatively easy.

As the world becomes increasingly globalized, building a dream life in another country has become far more attainable. Panama offers the security of the US Dollar, alongside the political stability that sets it apart from other options in Central America. From “Miami of the Caribbean” in Panama City, to the mountains and coffee plantations in Boquete, beaches, jungle, endless islands, the Caribbean on one side, the Pacific on the other… The diversity and beauty of Panama are quietly underrated. 

As small corners of the world become more accessible, travel more affordable, and creature comforts readily available - the idea of living the dream in a tropical paradise on a far-flung island has become an attainable dream for many. In fact, as more and more ex-pats are leaving to make their lives abroad well before retirement, buying property and starting businesses in foreign countries where they can build a life most only dream about.
