Playa Reina is located in the Province of Veraguas, southern coast on Mariato’s coastline along the western side of the Azuero Peninsula that holds the best surfing in Panama and many deserted beaches often referred to as the “Sunset Coast”. Thanks to the beautiful sunsets over the Pacific Ocean, it's very beautiful and still not very crowded or touristic, surrounded by nature and wildlife. Also, there are lots of rivers to explore. It's three kilometers away from Mariato, a typical Panamanian small village next to the sea.
The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The chef prepares wholesome meals using the most natural ingredients locally available. The “a-la-carte” menu is based mainly on local seafood and fresh fish sourced by local fishermen on a daily basis.
If your choice is to remain at the hotel, you can enjoy having a drink with some snacks or playing ping-pong with your friends, and afterward relaxing on the beach watching the surfers catch the waves or watching the sunset over the horizon.
