pygmy sloth 600x600As we well know and appreciate, Panama is home to a wide variety of wildlife. It's known as a bird-watching destination, and we've all seen our share of unidentifiable-to-us creepy six-legged critters -- but there are some other truly rare animals, as well, many of whom have only Panama to call their homes. Have you seen any of these?

Pygmy Three-Toed Sloth. There are two types of sloths: three-toed and toe-toed. The pygmy, weighing at best about three-and-a-half kilograms, is the smallest of the three-toed variety. They live exclusively on Isla Escudo de Veraguas. Since these sloths spend most of their time hanging upside down, their fur grows in the opposite direction of the way it grows on most animals! Critically endangered thanks to the destruction of the mangrove trees where they live, their habitat is now protected on Isla Escudo de Veraguas.

Slaty Slender Mouse Opossum. Although elusive, they live in protected areas of the Darien and in the rainforests around the Canal, so they are currently not considered endangered -- as long as people hold off on clearing their land. This little marsupial eats plants and insects.

bocce-2 600x600Bocce Ball, sometimes called ‘Bocci’ or ‘boccie’ is an ancient Italian game seeing play as far back as Roman Empire times. Traditionally played on natural soil and asphalt courts, Bocce is a neighborly game, similar to lawn bowling. Play is perfect for socializing with a beer in the hand and a picnic waiting in the wings.

A group of residents have been quietly playing Bocce at the beaches for the last 6 years. Meeting on a weekday afternoon, in an undisclosed location, their memberships raise and fall through the snowbird season. Their hush-hush games culminate into a tournament every March called the ‘Ides of March’, where the winning team takes home bragging rights and prizes.

This past March, players teamed up to create 8 teams to compete in the annual Ides of March championship. Getting into the fun of the event, players took license to individualize their clothing. Teams like the Pink Panthers - a team of ladies, donned themselves in pink from ball caps to pink bows on bocce sneakers.

holyweek-300x153There is a myth in Panama that say, “If you go to the beach on Good Friday, you will turn into a sardine.”

In colonial times, Myths like these were created to warn against indulging in worldly pleasures during Semana Santa (Holy Week). Children were told, “If you climb a tree, you will turn into a monkey.” Or, “if you swim in the river, you will become a fish.”

In the Roman Catholic faith Semana Santa is a time for remembering the passion, death and resurrection of Christ. While many hold true to this Spanish tradition and their Roman Catholic roots, others head to the beach to spend this week long vacation with family and friends.

Ihoh-101 600x600n Panama poor and remote families will sometimes send children they cannot take care of to orphanages. These orphanages are government controlled and subsidized, although many of them still require additional support from the private sector. When a girl living in an orphanage turns 17 she must move out and support herself. This makes it extremely difficult for her to stay in school. The Woody House of Hope will give girls like these a home with food and a support system, offering them the chance to complete school.

Marie Claire, the founder of the Woody House of Hope, is a teacher at 5-Star Academy an International School in Santa Clara. With a Masters in Social Work and a passion for teaching, Marie Claire wants to create positive role modeling for girls coming through the orphanage system. She is not a newcomer on the block, Marie Claire has been involved with similar projects helping children in Haiti and the Dominican Republic for several years.

Siproeta_stelenes_-_Malachite2_600x600.jpgButterflies are important in our natural world. They are significant plant pollinators, a food source, and an indicator of the ecosystem’s well being. With butterflies in global decline, Jon and Linda from Pennsylvania decided to open a butterfly sanctuary in the mountain town of El Valle. The sanctuary’s mission is to educate on the ecological importance of butterflies and to pave a road for butterfly preservation in Panama.

The Butterfly Haven (El Mariposario) is an enclosed habitat where 12 different species of native butterflies, including the majestic Blue Morpho, live and breed. The Haven grounds include a café, library, gift shop, garden, laboratory and flight house. The main attraction, the flight house, is a 1500 square walk-in mesh room, containing over 200 butterflies.

caytoe.jpgA 1-year-old domesticated coyote is in need of a home. Taken from the wild as a baby, he has lived his entire life with humans. He is friendly with adults and kids, dogs, cats and many other animals. In his current home he lives happily with a sloth and a kinkajou.

Since he was never taught the skills of hunting and living in the wild, he only knows human companionship and a dog dish.This means he needs to be taken care of, he cannot be released back in to the wild.

While ANAM has offered their cooperation, they will not take the animal on themselves, nor will any of the zoos. Right now the coyote faces euthanasia because he cannot find a suitable home.

If you have a forever home or a even foster to buy some time please contact Becky by phone at: 6565-8307 or by email at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Currently the coyote is in the Volcan area, if a home is found transportation will be provided.

CASAMAR-101_600x600.jpgYesterday, April 13 2014, Mr. Martinelli himself attended the inauguration of the CASAMAR development in San Carlos. Over 600 guests were in attendance. Many were dressed in beach chic attire, excited by the prospect of shaking hands with the president.

With ties to the project and a house of his own in the development, Martinelli seemed comfortable in CASAMAR’s new luxury beach club. He danced to live rock and roll, shook multiple hands, and posed for hundreds of photos.

As the night came to an end guests were served fresh seafood paella. While the sun had set, the party continued. Guests danced, drank and enjoyed good company well in to the night. A lucky few even sang a karaoke rendition of “we will rock you” with the president himself.

There’s a new “kid on the block,” Candela Grill, located approximately 6 km from The Rey in Coronado heading towards the city, directly across from Banco National in Chame.  Candela is the creation of Owner Diomedes (who prefers to be called “Junior”), and is assisted by his wife, Ana, and brother-in-law, Juan.  Candela has replaced the former Rincon Cubano Restaurant.

My spouse and I were invited to a tasting dinner shortly after the restaurant had been open three weeks.  It was very special, since we were given small tastes of many dishes; therefore, we were able to sample and discuss them.  We started with clams in garlic sauce.  My husband claims to be an expert on clams and gave this succulent dish his blessing.  The clams came out steamy hot and sweet in a luscious sauce of celery, garlic, peppers, parsley, carrot, butter, and I suspect, white wine.  Definitely a go for $6.95, and the hot, crispy garlic bread ($2.50) was the perfect accompaniment.

the-bayLiz Larroquette’s no-BS approach to advising clients on real estate has earned her the respect of thousands of expats who have relocated to Panama, and many more who are considering relocating in the future. See what there is to discover at

Buying a condo in a foreign country is an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Still, it can be daunting- especially when you feel like you don’t know what you don’t know! 

I’m somewhat of a “property matchmaker,” helping to pair expats up with their dream homes in Panama. After almost 10 years of specializing in Panama’s Gold Coast, I’ve found that the best indicator of my clients’ person-to-property match often lies within these questions.
