Right on the coast this quite little town has PLENTY to offer from scuba,surfing(board and kite), fishing or just a quite weekend sitting on the beach or back in the comfort of the hammocks at your casita. Want more action Stay in Panama City!!!! As far as the highway construction, Panama is TRYING very hard to catch their infrastructure up (and doing a great job) with the demand of the tourism so being understanding to this will help out A LOT! There is plenty of choices of food to eat from a simple bakery to authentic italian pizza delivered to you or sit down restaurants all within walking or short driving distance. We absolutely LOVED our weekend and wished we had found this town much earlier in our 2 years here....but now we have a VERY good reason to come back.Every Local we met was so Polite and eager to tell you everything their town has to offer so you don't miss anything.Everything you wish can be arranged through Casita Margarita. The manager, Jose, WAS BY FAR!!!! the best host I have ever met in our families many travels and stays, so with that said, I really really really suggest your stay at Casita Margarita.. Thank you Jose, Charlie & Toni, Wayne and Christine and to Everyone there in Pedasi Who Made our Familys weekend full of memories to last us a life time.....WE WILL BE BACK!!!! thats a promise

We booked our trip in Panama through a vacation company, which highly recommended Pedasi, having read the guide book and Trip Advisor and thought OK it appears to be a place to see, well if you are not a surfer or a fisherman I cannot say that the detour is worthwhile at present. The state are currently commissioning a new highway so it appears that it will be developed, but really it is just a sleepy village about 3 miles from the coast, anyway you want read about the hotel: its a village bed & breakfast, we were in one of the rooms on the ground floor, I understand from my observations that these 2 rooms are the bigger in the establishment, 5' bed, the upstairs have 4'6". The room downstairs is very dark and does not really have natural light, there is w window but this is covered by what appears to be foliage from hedging and therefore zero light enters the room. Breakfast is standard fare, eggs as many ways as you can thtink of plus fruit and yoghurt. Want to go to Pedasi for your own reasons, but remember there is not a lot in the village

I'm terribly sorry that you didn't enjoy Pedasi. It sounds like you may have been mis-sold the location based on your tastes. I'll be the first to admit, Pedasi is not for everybody. It's still well off the beaten tourist track and has a lot of kinks to work out in terms of tourism infrastructure, reliable services, etc. For some folks, that's actually the attraction. However, I do agree that it's understandable why other travelers would scratch their heads and wonder, "what am I doing here?". I apologize that you were not thrilled by our property, but it does sound like perhaps your review was more about the area and less about our B&B. I'd be happy to offer you a steeply discounted stay should you ever desire to return, but it sounds like the Azuero Pensinula is not your cup of tea. If you would consider coming back, I'll make sure you have tours and activities planned so that you get a proper introduction to the area.

Nicest little bed and breakfast, well run and decorated. Rooms are small with queen beds, but comfortable. Air conditioned! We had a wonderful stay in Pedasi and this B&B made it even nicer. Good breakfast although pancakes if you order them are on the small side. This small town is very typical and well kept. There are beaches close by, although the sand is dark. Loved it.

Room Tip: If you can, get the ground floor room, otherwise you have to go up the stairs

If we were to recommend someone to visit a typical Panamanian town, this would be the one -Pedasi. It has lots of small hostels, comfortable and well kept. This one is very cute, the manager Jose is quite attentive and helpful and the room, although small, is comfortable. The only problem is the air conditioning is not as cool as we like it, (it is hot in Pedasi this time of year) but they do have a fan in the room. Bathrooms are modern and clean. Very enjoyable.

So sorry to hear the A/C wasn't up to par. Unless the weather is simply 95 degrees+, Hades-like hot in Pedasi (which does happen now and then), the units are able to cool the rooms down to very, very chilly temperatures. I'll have the staff look at the A/C unit where you stayed asap. Thanks for the review!

Pedasi on the Azuero Peninsula was our last stop on our first tour of Panama and we were not disappointed. This charming diamond in the rough is clean, tidy and oozing with charm! Keep an eye on this area as it is set to boom big time. In addition to the adorable village, the country is busily constructing brand new roads (2 lanes each direction) and it is a breeze to get there from Panama City. On a recommendation, we booked at Casita Margarita in Pedasi. Would like to have spent all nights there, but they were full. Finally got to spend two days there and were not disappointed with this cozy boutique hotel. Rooms were sweet with brand new bathrooms - great water pressure and spotless. There is free wireless, lots of places to relax with a book and a cerveza too. Breaksfast, which is included, was excellent with lots of great coffee and friendly staff. Dinner is served on weekends and I have heard good reviews although they were, unfortunately, not serving the night we were there. Jose Enriquez, the hotel manager, speaks excellent English in addition to this native Spanish and went out of his way to tell us about the area, suggest activities, etc. We will be back!

Room Tip: We always choose the top floor, not folks walking in the room above you. Sitting area on the second...

Casita Margarita was a great find in the quaint town of Pedasi. We travelled in Panama with our 2 adult children. Jack and Sue Halloran were very helpful as was Jose who organised fishing trips and anything else we needed including cooking the catch! We had the rooms upstairs which were very clean and comfortable and a relaxing sitting area complete with veranda and hammocks. Breakfast was good and pack lunches on request plentiful. Wi-Fi was available. A wonderful part of our holiday.
