Teyuna Highlands – ONCE IN A LIFETIME
Overview of Teyuna Highlands
Located in the middle of the Azuero Peninsula of Panama, just outside the quaint town of Cambutal, lies the new up and coming hot spot for surfers and deep sea fishermen alike. For just over a decade, gringos have been buying up all the beachfront surrounding areas of Cambutal. In that time, the town has gone from a sleepy little local town with a small fishing village, into a growing tourist and traveler destination. With a number of hotels, bed and breakfasts, house rentals, restaurants and even a yoga retreat (http://www.sansararesort.com), ex-pats have really begun laying down a solid infrastructure from which to build a solid, thriving community.
Teyuna Highlands consists of 4 farms totaling 308 Acres/123 Hectares, of stunning ridge lines, wildlife and unparalleled views, with its own natural water sources. At the moment there are no roads or electricity to the property. The first stage of development will be to permit and construct a road to access the farm. Less than a mile from Teyuna Highlands is Los Buzos, a fishing resort/marina with full city amenities (http://losbuzos.net/), so continuing the power from Los Buzos to the the Highlands shouldn’t cost too much time or money. Once the road access is in place, the options for Teyuna Highlands are virtually infinite.
To the motivated buyer, Teyuna Highlands is a gold mine. This is an opportunity for the serious developer to get in on the ground floor of a serious boom. “If you build it, it will come” seems to be a very real motto out in Cambutal. With the potential for over hundreds of home sites, Teyuna Highlands could be anything from simple home sites to a full-blown, luxurious gated community.
The purchase of Teyuna Highlands will also include almost 100 meters of beachfront property within the Teyuna village residential area of Teyuna shores. One option for this additional property is to offer a beach community center for the residences of Teyuna Highlands, complete with bungalows, a community kitchen, gym, spa and a pool.
Beach lots also sold separately. Only 10/21 left!
The last time I was down there, the 20 room hotel, Hotel Playa Cambutal (http:// www.hotelplayacambutal.net/) was booked solid for the 2 weeks I was there.
Surfing in Cambutal is one of the biggest draws to the area. There is a decent beach break just off Hotel Playa Cambutal, and a point break 6 or so miles west of that, but the real draw are the waves “411”, “Indicator” and “Dinosaurs”, all located at our main property of Teyuna Village.
Around Teyuna Highlands
Teyuna Highlands is approximately a 5 hour drive to the SE of Panama City. Along the way can be found a number of large grocery and supply stores. About 2 hours from Cambutal are Chitre and Las Tablas, the two major closest towns to get anything you need (McDonalds, big grocery stores, health food stores, etc). Also a brand new, massive hospital just opened up in Chitre earlier this year.
The next closest surf spot to Cambutal is Playa Venao, located about an hour away. Within the last decade, Playa Venao has gone from a few little cabins on the beach to a blown out surf community. Playa Venao Hotel Resort (http://www.playavenaohotelresort.com/) is just one of the resorts that have sprung up there. The road from Playa Venao to Cambutal was just finished being completely paved in 2018, making access between the two surf towns much more convenient.
You will also find a number of multi-million dollar housing developments being built in Venao.
Tonosi, the closest real town to Cambutal. About a 30 minute drive from the property, you will find a few small restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, police station, etc.
Cambutal is the closest town to Horcones Highlands, located about 5 miles away. It is really not much of a town, but more of a village. There are a few small “restaurants”, “stores” and “bars”. There is even a “Centro de Salud” (health clinic) for minor health emergencies, but not much else.
The beach is approximately a mile past Cambutal towards Teyuna Highlands. From there, you will see the growth of what has really been happening in the last 10 years.
A number of hotels, coffee shops, bed and breakfasts, houses for rent and yoga retreats are starting to pop up all over on this small 3 mile section of beach. Hotel Playa Cambutal (http://www.hotelplayacambutal.net/), Los Buzos (http://losbuzos.net/) and the Sansara Resort (sansararesort.com) are just a few to already be up and running.
Potential for Teyuna Highlands
Teyuna Highlands is prime for the developing. It has the potential for hundreds of homesites. The surrounding area has established a nice infrastructure and a solid buzz. This area of Panama is on the cusp of blowing up and making quite the name for itself. Teyuna Highlands is one of those properties that, in ten years from now, people will say “If we would have only bought back then…”.
