City, mountains, forest, beach—buy half an acre in Sora for less than $80,000

With altitudes from 1,200 to 3,400 feet, Sora is a settlement in the mountains of Chame in Panama, first populated centuries ago by the tribes of the Caribs. Its location is unbeatable. Unlike the popular retirement destination of Boquete, Sora is just 60 miles—about an hour-and-a-half by car—from Panama City. It’s also 45 minutes from some of Panama’s best Pacific beaches, known as the “dry arch” beaches because they get less rain than the rest of the country. The area is verdant with mountain views that rival those in Boquete—a town that has become a success-story since expats began flocking there some years ago. This is one of the reasons we think property prices will appreciate here.
