|The Plaza Apartment
Plaza Apartment is on the main plaza of the town of San Pedro directly
across from the second oldest church in the Western Hemisphere. On
the weekends, the plaza is usually filled with townsfolk and children playing,
and there may be a local basket ball tournament underway or kids' soccer
game. During national and religious holidays, the plaza is the starting
point for parades and processions steeped in tradition. The two story
gray building where the apartment is located is more than 100 years old
and was once the home of Panama’s famous Rogelio Sinán, author of
many poems and books, most notably the Latin America genre classic La
Isla Magica written in the style of magic realism popularized by Gabriel
Garcia Marquez. The three bedroom apartment on the top floor is a
traditional Tabogano islander design with a front balcony to view parades
and religious processions and a back balcony with an ocean view.
Each bedroom is equipped with a double bed, desk, foldout couch, shelves,
and WIFI connection. The Library has a collection of books in several
languages and is outfitted for comfortable reading. The kitchen,
with microwave, stove, and oven, allows visitors the choice of preparing
their own delicious dining delights of fresh fish and mariscos caught locally.
The Plaza Apartment is above the Plaza Café, Taboga’s only authentic
sidewalk café. It's been said that the café serves
the best cup of coffee in Panama, and a little store inside sells locally
made hats and hammocks. The Plaza Café is a great place to
relax and enjoy Tabogano life as it passes by and a place to meet interesting
people. The Plaza Apartment enjoys morning sea breezes and afternoon
mountain breezes with stunning views of the town with its green mountain
backdrops and a 180 degree view of Taboga Bay with post panamax ships entering
the Panama Canal in the distance.
