Palo Santo

Palo Santo and Margaritas

The De Obaldia Group manages two properties in the Chiriquí province, referred to as Palo Santo and Margaritas. Together, these sites comprise around 1,200 hectares of land. The sites are close to each other but separated by the Cerro Silla de Pando mountain range, and they both share a view of the Volcan Baru, the tallest mountain in Panama. With an elevation of around 1300 to 1800 meters above sea level, these properties enjoy a very desirable climate year round, which heavily contrasts the humid conditions most commonly attributed to Panama City. This, along with relatively low costs of living, have made areas in this region extremely popular to Panamanians for second home locations, as well as relocating North American and European Retirees. Travel to this region is very accessible, as it is a 45 minute plane ride from Panama and is also connected by a two lane federal highway to the capital.

The two properties are currently home to a dairy farm operation, which includes red-roofed barns and free roaming cattle that add to the already existing visual appeal of the property. Additionally, one of the most valuable assets in this area is the abundance of pure natural water that runs through the surface creeks in the open pastures. The properties host a great range of vegetation as well, including but not limited to Pine and Eucalyptus trees as well as bananas and bougainvillea, which help to provide a beautiful visual contrast to the rugged native forest backgrounds.

The Palo Santo and Margaritas properties provide vast opportunities for exciting physical amenities that can become strong components of an exciting lifestyle offering which has already proved extremely popular in the neighboring regions.
