The Azuero Peninsula is going through a metamorphosis. Everyday Panamanians and foreigners alike are discovering the charms of this region full of history, tradition and beautiful beaches. Chitré, the capital of the Herrera province, offers city-like amenities along with the tranquility of the countryside. There is where Cubitá can be found, a residential project that blends modernism perfectly with Spanish colonial style. Apartments start from $125,000 and homes from around $240,000.

This ambitious project that comprises 64 luxurious apartments, 26 houses located on big plots, a 100-room hotel, a commercial square with space for 16 shops and a spa is the brainchild of Panamanian entrepreneur Iván Eskilden and his wife María Amelia Pezzoti. The development name “Cubitá” honors the Pre-Colombian tribe who used to inhabit the area.

The gated community Cubitá has two models of detached houses: Hatillo that measures 159.26 sqm and Tonosí, larger at 231.14 sqm which are going to be built in plots of 600 sqm. The two and three bedrooms condominiums range from 84.4 sqm to 111.1 sqm. The owners will have a free membership for the Cubitá Club allowing them to enjoy the hotel’s social areas such as swimming pool, sauna, gym plus a ten percent discount in the spa and the restaurant.

Spa Resort

The Cubitá Boutique Resort & Spa is scheduled to open on November 16. Located on five hectares of thematic gardens, its buildings have the Spanish colonial flavor typical of the region. The hotel will offer 100 luxurious rooms, a colonial chapel, restaurant, two event rooms, a museum and a social area with swimming pool, gym and a spa.

This interesting development is ideal for those who are looking for traditional festivals, pristine beaches and at the same time the comforts of city living. For more information visit
