Today, Margaritaville, the global lifestyle brand, and Grupo Los Pueblos, the leading developer in the Republic of Panama, announced a new, beachfront condo destination in Playa Caracol. Set to debut in mid-2027, Margaritaville Beach Resort & Residences Playa Caracol will blend local cultural and architectural traditions to offer a distinctive experience in design and food & beverage, while embracing classic Margaritaville amenities such as 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar and License to Chill Bar & Grill. Designed by The McBride Company, the location will offer both full time living and rental opportunities. This development marks the debut of a new way to lodge within the Margaritaville portfolio.

Travel experts say Panama City is piquing the interest of tourists and resonating with digital nomads and expats, and is poised to be an “it” destination of 2024, according to Forbes.

Located 1 hour and 10 minutes from Panama City, in the Chame District, Playa Caracol is a growing tourist and housing locale – offering beautiful views of the Gulf of Panama as well as glimpses of Otoque and Bona Islands. The district offers miles of pristine beaches, diverse cultural offerings, traditional festivals, local culinary experiences, water sports, and more. Nearby in Coronado, residents can find shopping, golf, and other recreational activities. Additionally, Panama boasts excellent accessibility with numerous direct flights from international hubs, including major cities in the United States such as New York, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, and Dallas.

“At Margaritaville, we’re always looking for locations that are diverse and multifaceted, so Playa Caracol was the perfect destination to introduce this new way to live. In addition to its growing popularity as a retirement destination, Panama is a bright and inspirational country that brings together elements of fast-paced business with a relaxing lifestyle, similar to Margaritaville’s ethos,” said Tamara Baldanza-Dekker, Chief Marketing Officer at Margaritaville. “Honoring the historic elements of the area and its vibrant future, Margaritaville Beach Resort & Residences Playa Caracol will feature thoughtful design inspired by the country’s energy as a global hub as well as its dynamic landscapes.” 

Developed by Grupo Los Pueblos, Margaritaville Beach Resort & Residences Playa Caracol will feature a total of 261 residences, including 80 cottages and 181 high-rise multi-family units, available for full-time living or added to a rental program. With resort-style amenities and a modern feel, units will feature contemporary, island-inspired design elements and range from 750 sq. ft. to 1,500 sq. ft. Prices start in the $300,000s. 

“We are thrilled to bring the Margaritaville lifestyle to a destination as distinct as Panama” said Alfredo Alemán, CEO of Grupo Los Pueblos. “As a modern metropolis and regional hub, Panama City offers world-class services, including international banks, malls, hospitals, cruise terminals, convention centers, and the region’s best-interconnected airport. Our beachfront location boasts a comprehensive amenities program designed to guarantee an unforgettable living experience.”

The destination’s beach club will act as an anchor with offerings and amenities for residents. With direct access to the white sand beaches, the location will feature a Margaritaville restaurant concept and pool area. Additionally, the surrounding complex will be home to a racket club consisting of paddle tennis and pickleball courts.
