Playa Panama, Guanacaste

Located in the scenic Papagayo Gulf in the Guanacaste Province, Playa Panama is one of the most attractive beaches in Guanacaste province. With close proximity to Liberia and the Daniel Oduber International Airport, Panama beach is accessible all year round through a new road that has been opened connecting the beach directly with Liberia.

A five-minute drive from the fabulous beaches of Playa Hermosa and Playas del Coco, this beach offers tourists stunning ocean views that are within close range of some of the country’s best national parks, such as Santa Rosa, Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, and the Marino Las Baulas de Guanacaste.

A key feature of this beach is also that it lies close to the airport; with international flights regularly landing from cities such as Hawaii, Houston, Atlanta, Madrid, and Toronto. A typical inner bay beach, Playa Panama has slate-gray sand and beautiful blue waters, making it very visually appealing.

Having no stones, this beach is one of the best places to swim as the currents here are not strong, and the tide often remains quite low. Around two kilometers in length, Playa Panama is surrounded by a tropical dry forest. Relatively a tranquil and private area, this is one of the friendliest places on the northern Guanacaste shores, as locals here mix easily with visitors to create an environment that is perfect for those who want some peace and quiet.

Ideal for tourists who enjoy sunbathing long walks along the shore, and a tranquil atmosphere, Playa Panama also has a range of luxury resorts and condominiums as well as affordable accommodations. Nearby the beach is the grand Four Seasons Papagayo with its Arnold Palmer championship golf course, the Secrets Papagayo and the Mangroove Hotel. The presence of these hotels makes Playa Panama a frequent hot spot for the rich and famous.
