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.

IMG_0812_600x600.jpgQUOTE:  “There is no sauce in the world like hunger.”  --Miguel Cervantes (Don Quixote)

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 LizLarroquette.com.

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.

kids-bandIf you grew up or raised children in the United States, chances are you or they attended a school that, at one point or another, discussed or actually went through with cutting or reducing its music program. That's incredibly unfortunate, considering that research has shown that studying music not only gives students a skill they can use throughout their lives, but also improves test scores, aids language development, and improves a child's ability to learn other subjects.

Panama Coast International School in Gorgona makes music a key element of their curriculum. According to Kathy Kress, PCIS principal, "All students are musicians and should have the opportunity to explore and expose their talents and passions through a performance-based program." That's why the school has a rock band at every grade level, starting in kindergarten.

elections in panamaIn a few days, authorities of popular vote will be elected; these authorities will serve in government for the next 5 years. The four authorities are: Representatives, Mayors, Deputies and the President of the Nation. The elections will be held on Sunday May 4th 2014.  

It is very important to understand that 4 authorities rule each sector in Panama. The authorities represent the Executive power in each sector; these authorities are elected by popular vote. The general elections are a means to elect these four authorities: “Representatives”, who represent the corregimientos (a Spanish term used for country subdivisions for administrative purposes), the “Mayors” representing the Districts, the “Deputies” representing the electoral districts, and the “Presidency” representing the whole nation.

Requirements in order to vote: One must legally be an adult (18 years of age), in possession of a valid national ID, and enrolled in the Electoral Register. Panamanians living abroad may also vote if they have been previously enrolled in the Electoral Register.

The documentary about three Santa Catalina Surfers, Oli, Deivis and Cholito, explores the challenge of becoming a professional surfer in a small town. Last May, the three surfers along with Gary Saavedra, represented Panama in the 2013 ISA World Surfing Games (WSG) that took place in Santa Catalina. The games came to an emotional close with Oli taking home a silver medal on his home break.

Playacommunity had the opportunity to speak with Annie Canavaggio last year at the ISA WSG. At the time, Annie had been in Santa Catalina for 5 years. With an extensive background in filmmaking, Annie wanted to use her talent to bring light to what surfing meant to the 3 local Santa Catalina surfers. While illuminating the struggle many Panamanian surfers face to gain recognition, she captured the beauty of Santa Catalina, and Oli, Deivis & Cholito’s ability to create their own paths to success defying limitations.

Rompiendo La Ola is one of 8 films in the section ‘Stories of Central America and the Caribbean’. This portion of IFF aims to promote the emerging film industry nationally, and in brother countries. Each film in this section is significant to Panamanian life and culture.

kirk-chokes-on-bad-wine-400x275_600x600.jpg

For this April 1, I thought it would be appropriate to review some very special wines I’ve tasted. Having worked long and hard at this particular group, I even borrowed (stole) a few descriptions by other wine writers whose work I admire. I know some may think it’s all whiffing, sniffing and guzzling. But believe me, it can be very hard work. Especially with these particular bottles!

2013 Lemon Hills Vineyard and Lemonade Stand, Sauvignon Blanc, $47.00 (on sale this month for $2.99) 17.9% alc. California, USA.

Is this citrusy and crisp or just sour and tart? Like being whipped five or six times with a leather belt by a dominatrix; then just as it starts to hurt she gives you a slice of fruitcake. Great legs but a wrinkly butt. I suggest it be put back on the horse. I recommend this wine be laid down for some time…and forgotten about.
