Puerto Armuelles is a friendly beach town in western Panama. Beaches like this aren’t common in Panama — the mainland’s coastline doesn’t have many beaches that are accessible for swimming and strolling.
For many years, much of Puerto Armuelles served as Chiquita Banana plantation land. Once plantation's workers harvested bananas, they would pile them onto ships waiting in the harbor. After a major worker’s strike, Chiquita left, and the population shrunk considerably. When you walk around town, you can still see the old plantation houses. Expats have begun to buy up some of the town’s affordable beachfront property.
