Very nice neighborhood

Panama City has experienced an explosion since I was last there 10 years ago. This is one of the nicer areas for living & good restaurants (which are not necessarily cheap).

Goodness gracious! Talk about super duper luxury, this is it! I am a Panamanian but left some 50 years ago and I couldn't believe the exquisite environment and homes in this area. The sad thing is that the majority of residents here are foreigners because the average Panamanian cannot nor could never afford to live in places such as this... More

If you want to enjoy the modern part of Panamá, get ready fo see this. Lots of constructions, and new buildings, lots of restaurants, one of them is Tre Scalini.

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!

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.
