The part of Costa del Este near the ocean is a safe quiet business and residential area. Lots of condo business towers.

Costa del Este has more of a US vibe to it than any other place in Panama City. It feels like everything is brand new and has a good variety of restaurants. Lots of fast food restaurants more than anything.

This is a whole area of Panama that is rather upscale with lots of highrises and condos not far from Panama City. Lovely wide flat roads with good sidewalks, lots of trees, great shopping and services.
