About The Hunts
It has been our dream to move abroad, purchase a home and build a couple of rental casitas and we've finally made that dream come true.
The Hunts purchased this Bungalow in 2014
Why The Hunts chose Nueva Gorgona
Nearly an acre, this property was the perfect choice for building a couple of casitas. They have been strategically positioned on the property to allow our guests privacy and the centrally located pool is a great area to socialize with the other guest, if you so choose. The internet in each casita (we have 2 casitas and 2 studios) is hard wired to ensure a great experience.

Great Place to Rest, Relax, & Refresh
My husband and I stayed at one of the Hunt's casitas for two months during February and March. Paradise in Panama is a mini-resort for 3 couples, so the beautiful pool is almost private, and one of its very best features. (A convenient pool is essential in the tropical Panamanian heat.) We visited with the other couples around the pool every day. Our casita had everything one needs: kitchen, comfortable living area, well-sized tiled shower, and a super patio (with a hammock for snoozing or reading). Suggest you leave your oven food recipes at home: ovens don't exist in Panama -- they produce too much heat. Instead, use the BBQ grills, with tin foil pans for vegetables. The grills also are great for meals with other guests.
Russ and Linda Hunt, the owners, live at the mini-resort. They make helpful suggestions on activities and travel. Do ask them! Thanks for the many books!
We did not rent a car, so the couple block walk to the Pan American highway over rocky streets in daytime heat (90-95 degrees every day) was intense. Buses for 30 cents to Coronado (3 miles) are plentiful on the highway, and other buses take you to restaurants (we enjoyed Picasso and the Sandbar) and the Pacific beach. Local buses in Gorgona take you to restaurants (Rincon Catracha and La Ruina) and the local fishing beach. Taxis are readily available for $3-4, and a bit higher for trips to other beaches and the cool mountain town of El Valle. We also visited Casco Viejo and the Canal in Panama City, seafood markets, plus a jungle trip to the Emberra people. The natural beauty of Panama, with its hills and flowers, are superb.
Very nice Casita and grounds
We did enjoy our stay. Linda and Russ are very friendly. It is a relaxing and quiet place to chill. A vehicle is necessary to drive to Coronado for groceries and to get to beaches and restaurants. If you like walking - roads are not paved and no sidewalks.
Best WiFi in Panama
Great location for exploring the region. Clean, fully equipped kitchen, & nice patio. Best WiFi during our time in several locations in Panama. Car needed if you want to do field trips. Highly recommend visiting the Butterfly Haven in Anton Valle and lunch at Casa Florencio.
Linda (owner) went above and beyond in all aspects of my month long stay. She welcomed us like old friends and was always there for questions and advise. Everything, casita, grounds etc., were EXACTLY as pictured or described. Everything was exceptionally clean. I felt so at home there it was difficult to leave. If this is the setting you are looking for you WILL NOT be disappointed. Thank you for a well remembered, never to be forgotten stay!
“Paradise in Panama”
Stayed at the Casita the last week in March. It is exactly as shown in the pictures! It has everything you need for a short or long stay and the pool and grounds are great. It is located close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. We really enjoyed the patio and the hammock. Linda and Russ are great hosts and we hope to be back.
We felt so fortunate to have found this place in Nueva Gorgona. The owners are terrific hosts and are happy to share tips to make the Panama experience the best it can be. The grounds of this property are BEAUTIFUL and well maintained, as is the pool. We enjoyed reading and socializing poolside every day , then slipping in to cool off. This casita has its own private patio and grill. We enjoyed our morning coffee there, lounging on the furniture and hammock, and making meals at the end of the day. The kitchen has everything one needs to make themselves at home. The bed is very comfortable and the unit is just as the pictures show - clean, modern and spacious. We stayed for three weeks, but could have easily stayed longer in comfort. I highly recommend this property for a stay in Panama!
