Operating Manager

Beth McGuyton, a native Texan, took a leap of faith and ventured to Panama with her spunky 10-year-old daughter in September 2013.  Her initial plan was to return to the US after the school year was over and back to the sales world she temporarily left behind. She immediately fell in love with Panama and the Coronado community and decided to stay permanently. Having lived in Costa Rica as a young woman, she wanted to give her daughter the same valuable experience of learning a new language and experiencing another culture.

Beth graduated from Southwestern Adventist University with a Bachelor degree in Communication (Radio-TV-Film) and started her post-college career as a News Reporter. After a short time, she realised it wasn’t for her and returned to the sales world, which she had worked in since the young age of 15. After she decided to stay in Panama, an opportunity in Real Estate arose and she enthusiastically joined Try Panama as Rental/Property Manager and shortly after expanded to the sales side of the business. The skills she had acquired from her work history, along with her schooling made it a perfect fit. She attends to the individual needs of each of her clients and strives to assist in all areas of the relocation process offering her “can do” attitude, sunny outlook, hard work ethic and outstanding communication skills.  In her free time you can find her socializing, enjoying the outdoors, cooking or reading a book in her hammock.  She would love to hear from you so feel free to contact her at or 6233.9432.
