Diversify Your Portfolio with an
Attractive Eco-Investment

Playa Hermosa provides an attractive eco-investment to investors seeking to diversify their portfolio to include income-producing tropical Pacific waterfront property which earns a significant return on investment, provides a spectacular retreat, and helps to restore the natural environment.

  • Land Appreciation.  As the area around Playa Hermosa is developed, owners have the opportunity to realize significant upside on their Panamanian Pacific Coast real estate investment.

  • Reforestation and Medicinal Plant Farming.  High-value mixed native tree species and exotic tree species like teak provide owners with significant upside.  The ROI from reforestation and land appreciation may reach or exceed 15% annually over a 20+ year period.

  • Tax Benefits.  Owners are expected to qualify for Panama’s Law 24, which eliminates property and income taxes on reforestation projects for 20 years.

  • Panamanian Residency.  Law 24 status also qualifies most investors for a reforestation visa that provides permanent residency in Panama.

  • Quality of Life.  Owners who wish to live or have a second home in Panama will appreciate the ideal combination of Pacific coast waterfront, wildlife, and nearby access to modern civilization that Playa Hermosa offers.

  • Restore the Environment.  By restoring existing grazing land back to forest, owners will not only recreate a habit for wildlife and natural beautify, but take up to two tons of carbon dioxide, a primary driver of global warming, out of the atmosphere each year for each hectare reforested.

Potential Risks

Panamadera expects the financial returns to Playa Hermosa owners to reach or exceed 15% annually, based upon the current assumptions for reforestation revenues and land appreciation.  Like any investment, the actual returns experienced may be higher or lower due to environmental factors, management techniques, and market conditions in the future.  Actual returns will also vary for Playa Hermosa owner based upon the mix of native trees and teak that they choose to grow on their property.

Prospective investors should view Playa Hermosa as an opportunity to diversify their financial portfolio to include reforestation while simultaneously holding emerging-growth real estate and contributing to the betterment of the environment.

Panamadera encourages all prospective investors to understand the risks associated with real estate and reforestation.  Overall, we believe the benefits significantly outweigh the potential risks:

  • Weather.  Severe storms could potentially destroy trees or medicinal plants, requiring significant replanting.  We believe this risk is limited, since Panama is south of the hurricane belt and hasn’t experienced a hurricane in over 100 years.
  • Political Stability.  Any change to Panama’s political stability could impact conditions relating to investors, including Panama’s Law 24 tax and residency benefits.  We believe this risk is limited, as Panama has a low crime rate, healthy democratic government, and strong laws protecting the foreign real estate investor.  Furthermore, the Panama Canal creates a revenue base for Panama that promotes stability not available elsewhere in Latin America.
  • Market Conditions.  The demand and market prices for trees grown at Playa Hermosa could decrease, resulting in lower return on investment.  We believe this risk is limited due to the choice of species we are planting.  For example, the value of plantation teak has increased significantly in recent years, with some sources estimating an average increase in teak prices of 8% per year over the last 20 years.  As global demand for wood increases and natural sources dwindle, the price of tropical hardwoods is likely to rise.
