Turtle Cay Marina is an eco-friendly development on the Caribbean coast of Panama, located 12 miles Southwest of Nombre de Dios which was founded in 1510 Diego de Nicuesa as a Spanish Colony. Under the master plan for Turtle Cay, the development will include a golf course, residential homes, condos and a new hotel that is under development at this time.
Historically this property has been undeveloped with a few residences and the marina. Currently the marina has 70 berths for yachts, sailboats and catamarans overlooking the beautiful unspoiled beaches of the Caribbean Panamanian just 30 miles from San Blas. This first phase has been built with a short access channel ten feet tall and protected by reefs, mountains and forests with a tropical fauna and flora. Mooring services, restaurant and basic services like water and electricity are available and has security 24 hours. Under the new master plan the marina is going to expand inland and will triple in size, not counting the private docks attached to the new luxury homes that will surround the marina expansion.
With helicopter tours, diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking and deep see fishing, the potential within this resort development as a major vacation destination is over the top. Inland you have hiking, nature tours bird watching and horseback riding.
And if you want history, Nombre de Dios is the oldest continuously inhabited European settlement in the continental Americas. Originally a major port of call for the Spanish treasure fleet, Nombre de Dios was the most significant port for shipping in the Americas between 1540 and 1580. After the opening of Potosí in 1546, silver was shipped north to Panama City and carried by mule train across the isthmus to Nombre de Dios for shipment to Havana and Spain.
