Houses of Los Altos de Cerro Azul

The architecture in Los Altos de Cerro Azul can be described as "varied". A cement block structure sitting idle will cozy up to a McMansion. Many of the homes have steep roofs more typical of a Swiss Chalet. They wouldn't have seen any snow, of course, but the rain does fall off in torrents during the rainy season. Here are some snapshots I've taken while driving through the development on our early exploratory trips and now, running errands.

Fast-food Restaurant?

This one reminds me of a fast-food restaurant. Can you guess which one?

A rental which we might have followed up on if Casita Naranja hadn't come through.

"Habitat House" asked $100k. Even thought the trees were excellent, we kept looking

A small room for sale.

The most vibrant color in the development.

The color helps mask algae that grows up here.

We were told this one was for sale, but didn't get any more information. There was a glass enclosed bohio next to a steep backyard.

We came very close to making on offer on "Casa Roca". Needed modifications began looming after our first excitement wore off. It is currently undergoing massive remodeling.

  1. Howdy folks,
    I've been living in Panama City for six months having bought a great condo in El Cangrejo. I wanted a little mountain place and bought a small casita in Los Altos de Cerro Azul because it is close to PC and I can go back and forth freely. I hope the realtor has sold me a good house because it sure is charming. Any help on getting around, like to the water holes and streams and lookout points, or any advise you can give a new resident will sure be well appreciated.
