Gross rental yields in Panama have declined somewhat over the past few years.  But the gross yields in Panama - the rental return earned on the purchase price of a rental property, before taxation, vacancy costs, and other costs - are good, by international standards.  Yields range from 5.7% to 7.3%. 

There isn´t much difference, in terms of yield, between beachfront and further back.  Beachfront is more expensive, but you get a better rent.  Smaller apartments do tend to yield more.
