The Modern Business Area in Panama City.

Modern buildings, many companies and banks, local and foreigners. It looks like Miami, but with Panamenians.

We stayed in a condo in Costa del Este. The good part is that you are near a jogging trail, restaurants, nearby stores for groceries and pharmacy. The bad part is that it's a long taxi ride into the city and Casco Viejo. It's a new, very modern part of town. We felt very safe.

Lots of high rises and skyscrapers, as this area towards the airport is being developed and expanded alot. The prices are still reasonable, but it's climbing!

Nice addition to Panama City with the Westin Hotel and many great restaurants. It is the NEW City of Panama!

Trendy upscale area that is relatively refreshing change from the noise and pollution of the downtown business area. I recommend La Rada Dorada is a good brew pub. And Two Spoons, across the street, for good Jewish deli food like you would expect in North America or Europe.

The suburb of Panama City halfway to the international airport is a high rise satellite self sufficient city in its own right. More people are not just working in the office towers, but also living in the more newly built residential towers, and the businesses necessary to serve those residents, like restaurants and other consumer services, are sure to follow.

Nice place of the city. Huge buildings, nice and new little shopping places with nice stores. It's worthy to know the place, but the only thing, go there around 10.00 and back before 3.00 the traffic to go back to the city turns crazy. Only one way out. It also has a nice walking path.

WE had dinner in Costa del Este when I was there and the evening was cool and breezy. We sat outside and enjoyed the evening very much. It is much quieter than in Panama City as it is several miles away reached by a causeway.

This is a beautiful new area on the Cinta Costera of Panama City. Residential and commercial. Having a personal tour guide in Panama is something that I would recommend. Like any country, there are places that are saved and there are others that are not. I would always consult with the concierge at the hotel you are staying.
