"Las Olas" is the 'resort' hotel/condo project in Barquetta Beach, near David.
We have found the beach hot, treeless & nasty. The surf pounds so hard that surfers avoid the water. When the sun is out, you'll bake like a roast beef. We would visit this beach only when too lazy to drive elsewhere, such as Las Lajas (best pacific beach in Chiriqui.

bought condo in las olas, developers are really bad, after they get your money, trying to get them to perform on there promises is not going to happen. really a bad experience. i do not recommend anyone to purchase anything from these people. if you do make sure you have an attorney review all documents before, and make sure in the contract you give them the money and they give you the condo, in good conditon, and not when they say it is ready, for it will not be ready and they have your money. and don't sign a contract that says you will pay interest from when they say it is ready and you give them the money, biggest ripe off in panama, the developer charges you interest, from when he says its ready and the time you give him the money. NOT WHEN ITS IN YOUR NAME, BUT WHEN HE SAYS ITS READY, MAKE SURE IT SAYS YOU GIVE MONEY WHEN ITS IN YOUR NAME AT THE PUBLIC REGISTOR !!! THEN YOU GIVE MONEY AND NO INTEREST AT ALL !!!

BOUGHT LOT LONG TIME AGO AND NOW I FIND OUT THAT THE SON'S DEVELOPER IS CHANGING BUY LAWS WITHOUT CONSULTING WITH THE OWNERS. HOW IS THIS HAPPENING, NO CONCERN, JUST DOING IT, NOT EVEN ADVISING THE PAST OWNERS OF THE CHANGES OR GETTING THERE APPROVAL.!!!! WELCOME TO PANAMA

My wife and I stopped there during a visit to David area. Besides being very isolated, lacking utilities and services this development's representation was about as low as you go...anyone who buys there will learn to regret there mistake. The first floor units will undoubtedly really experience true beach living...probably in their living room.

I am now investigating the legality of the changs being made. It is my understanding from the Ministerio Viviendo, Barqurttq Nice was zoned Riral Residential. Therefore this can not be changed. Any new covenents will be illegal. Also anything signed in English is null and void. I hope this helps, please pass a long more information is always better.
So and so

We visited las Olas in Nov/Dec 2008. We found it very comparable to Troncones, MX w/o all the development and high priced accomodations. We enjoyed the expansive beaches and almost daily rented a beach bike and rode the beach 8 miles to the lagoon. fantastic! The isolation, lack of development and services is a plus for me and I will be returning this winter. The cycling options were endless on all the roads and I'm planning on bring a bike with me. The surf can be dangerous but I'm more than happy using the pool at Las Brisas. On other blogs I read about more restricted beach access to locals and that does not sit well with me so its worth checking on that.

Unlike many beaches in panama, at Playa La Barqueta and Las Olas there is no mud mixed in with the sand, and this means that rip tides form. Paradise does not come free, to understand more about rip tide safety, we recommend http://www.ripcurrents.noaa.gov/ The water in front of the development is much more blue than at Las Lajas. This is a fact. There is more mud mixed in with the sand at Las Lajas, making rip tide less common, but the mud give the water a brown cast.

We have visted Las Olas many times and have also purchased property there. We have visted many times and we go there because it is out of the way and a ground floor project. You do have to be careful in the surf. It is fun and it can be rough. If you respect it, you will be fine.

Building homes or condos in Panama is work. We have worked directly with Anthony and his family for years now. We all have the same goal. To build the Las Olas area into a wonderful place to live or visit. We are thrilled with the developement and what it has to offer. If you want to really see what it has to offer, contact us and stay at one of our condos and villas and really expierence Las Olas the right way.

Hi. I love the condos at Playa Barqueta and own one of them. Yes, the surf can be rough so you have to be careful. The area is remote which we love. Biking the area through all the small towns, conversing in Spanish with all the wonderful and friendly locals and kayaking the lagoon systems is wonderful.If you are looking for a typical US resort than you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a gorgeous and tranquil slice of Panama then you will love the area! Where else do you get 18 miles of beach to enjoy.
