Welcome to "La Buena Vida" hostal located en Veraguas province en República de Panamá.
Santa Catalina is not your typical tourist destination. Here you will find lots of local flavor with a touch of international influence. Beautiful beaches, great surf, amazing diving and plentiful fishing are all part of its charm. This area was originally discovered as a surf destination because of its now famous point break. This remote paradise is also growing in popularity amongst the diving community. For good reason as both local dives and dives within nearby Coiba National Park are spectacular!
Whether you are drawn to Catalina for it's beaches, fishing, diving or surf we invite you to longe in our hostel and learn more about this incredible place we are living in. We hope you come by and visit us, so we can share a bit of "The Good Life" we have here in Santa Catalina with you!
