Panama City Beaches Area
The area between Punta Chame and Rio Hato are known as the arco seco, or the dry arc.
What’s so special about the arco seco? While many areas of Panama get 100 inches of annual rain, the arco seco gets below 55 inches. This gives the beaches in this area better weather and sunnier days.
Coronado is at the center of the area that spans Punta Chame and Rio Hato. It was among Panama’s first resort developments and remains an area of high interest for expats, tourism, and vacationers. The cultural mix here includes Panamanians and expats from the Americas, Canada, Europe, and elsewhere.
