OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALots of waterfalls, fruit trees and privacy and yet a short walk from town. This property is just over 3 hectares ( 8 acres) of land at the outer edge of the village of Santa Fe, Veraguas, Panama (population about 3,000 with a small percentage of non-Panamanians living there) The land is bordered on 2 sides by a small cascading river and has several different types of structures (cane house, shop/barn, animal pens) totaling almost 5000 sq. ft. of metal roofs. There is a superb view of the mountains and National Forest which surrounds the village in three directions. Up until the late 1990’s the property was used to raise organic hogs and make sausage so there is good infrastructure to the land and some covered buildings including a small very rustic cane house with metal roof. There are 3 sources of water coming to the property: the municipal tap water, municipal farming water, and the river (which is so clean that the town’s water comes from it). In addition, the area gets over 100 inches of rain a year which can be captured in the large cement cistern on the land. The property also has 3-phase 480 volt electric service (an unusual level of service for heavy machinery from its “sausage factory” days) and is directly on a road that goes right into Santa Fe.

 
This land comes with a full legal title and has a recent professional  legal survey (2007). While it is located at the edge of the village of Santa Fe, it lies over a ridge so it is very quiet and feels extremely rural–even the noise from the village’s traditional annual festival is completely blocked–yet it has all the advantages of being part of a small town. It is rare to find a property with all of these services and features within the town limits of Santa Fe..
 
Santa Fe, in the province of Veraguas, Panama is a village at an altitude of about 1500ft (460 m). Due to Its altitude and unique conditions it has a very pleasant temperature year round– temperatures range from 65 to  85 daily.  Fruit trees abound. It is one hour by car from the city of Santiago and 5 hours from Panama City. A new road is currently being built to the Caribbean Coast which is only about 30 miles away. When this road is completed, Santa Fe, situated near the divide, will likely grow but, because of its location, this property will still feel private and secluded.
