Who We Are
In 2007, a Canadian expat (Jamuna) created Playacommunity.com. The site would be a portal where English speakers interested in Panama’s Pacific Coast could find useful information about moving to Panama from someone who was actually here.
Today the Playa Communities are made up of hundreds of expat residents and business owners. The articles you read on Playacommunity.com and in the La Playa Community Newspaper are written by real people who live here and do business here.
Who We Reach
We focus on neighborhoods along the Pacific coast, and those interested in living and investing in the area. Our readers come from Panama, Canada, the US, Great Britain and over 100 other countries.
Today our website is receives over 40, 000 visits every month. 60% of our readers live in Panama. Many of our readers use our website to research area information before they arrive. 5000 copies of our print publication - La Playa, are distributed monthly along the Pacific Coast to over 100 popular locations including hotels, banks, restaurants, offices and real estate developments.
Why We Do It
At Playacommunity, we believe that people prosper through community connection. As residents of a new country, we believe that we can live fulfilled and productive lives through our common connections in our host country. Playacommunity.Com and La Playa Newspaper serve as portals for this community connection.
