Heavenlys Hotel in Puerto Armuelles is right on the beach. You can walk to downtown or take a 75 cent cab ride.

Coronado is your best bet with shopping & the San Fernando Clinic if you have a medical need. Super Mercado El Rey, Rebi Smith, use to be a 99, but I don't see it on the map now, also a large ExPat communities with ExPat events.

If you anywhere in Panama, but not Panama City, than there are a number of places that fit that bill. I live in Puerto Armuelles and you can live at the beach and have restaurants and stores in a short stroll away.
