    Description

    Welcome to a beachfront community with magical towns nearby, world-class fishing and unprecedented ecological bliss that makes this destination totally spellbinding.

    This is located at Pocri, an autochthonous town just next to Pedasí, off the grid, naturally beautiful and made for millennials, digital nomads and everyone that experiences life to the fullest in an evergreen, beachfront location.

    Our community comes from all around the world and from different walks of life. We are bankers, entrepreneurs, marketers, farmers, ex-pats, cooks, yoga teachers, explorers, JiuJitsu coaches and more…
    Our differences are woven into the very fabric of growing our own community and they make us stronger.

    Its eco-friendly design include green areas within a residential complex with pathways for walks and bike rides, sidewalks and areas to enjoy a good rest, meditate, do yoga while breathing the pureness of the air or delight yourself with the singing of the birds.

    Jose brings over 15 years of E-Commerce, Telecom and international political experience to the Capital team. Born in Panama, Raised in Australia and Educated in the US (Miami University, Ohio) Jose comes from four generations of family political legacy (both in Panama and in the US).

    It is a project that is an intensive learning experience designed to have students learn how to run a variety of businesses in a foreign country under mentorship supervision.

    The Azuero Peninsula has a continental shelf drop off just a few miles from shore, thus providing a structure that becomes a giant upswelling of marine animals all year round. This is one of the reasons whales, dolphins, and other marine species are seen so close to shore. Where you can fly fish and spearfishing. And that’s not all, there are many things you could do nearby!
