“Its all about BIG”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

When I compare the buildings in my city, I cant be anything but overwhelmed by the size of the office buildings here. They are very imposing and although we have the largest buildings in Canada these simply impose their size on your senses

“A beautiful drive”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

A big thank you to those who designed and constructed this remarkable drive through a portion of Panama City. I wish some of our cities would take the time and effort to show off such natural beauty as the Avenida Balboa. A real showplace for this great country. Historic too.

“Now better traffic controls than years ago.”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

This long broad sea-front street used to be a real free-for-all with people driving in all directions at once and making no effort to obey any traffic laws. Now things are a bit, but only a bit, more civilized. Traffic still gets tied up during rush hours. Notice the huge difference in the height of the sea when the tide goes out. The seafront recedes by an amazing distance at low tide. Otherwise keep your eyes straight ahead before someone rams you. Some of the more characteristically Panamanian low rise buildings such as those housing Granada Restaurant and La Cascada Restaurant have been demolished to make way for what else? More high rise office buildings.

“Also referred to as "Cinta Costera"”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Very beautiful area in the downtown area of Panama, on the Bay. Excellent for Romantic walks and jogging. I was very impressed at the cleanliness of the entire way. It was a very nice area to have a leisurely stroll.
