I dont think this is a place of panama you would visit if you are around for pleasure. All you have there is big modern buildings a very nice area for you to live and work, but not much the tourist would like to see.

Not sure if it qualifies as a scenic spot as it is a new business district, but if you have access to a tall building, the view across the bay is impressive, a bit like high rises in Hong Kong or Dubai.

As someone else mentioned, you really think you're in Miami. All new and fresh, very modern. Large streest and excellent options for housing. There are a lot of good restaurants and options for leisure.

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.

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).

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