Panama City, Panama 

When you are flying above Panama City and you have a window seat, you may think that the city looks like a piece of Manhattan with skyscrapers dotting the horizon, unlike any other city in Central America. 


The temperature in the city remains relatively constant throughout the year with an average temperature of 27.3 Degrees Celcius with high humidity all year round, but every building has air conditioning. I visited the city during the rainy season, but it usually rained during the evenings, which was nice since it did not disrupt my daily activities and was quite refreshing. 


Panama City is a city of contrasts with hundreds of skycrapers, numerous residential neighbourhoods and old historical areas such as Casco Viejo. Panama City is surrounded by a stretch of tropical rainforest. The city is vibrant and the Panamanian people know how to enjoy life with a good work and play balance. There is an array of restaurant choices available from budget eating to fine dining. Some of my favourite restaurants was a Lebanese restaurant called "Beirut", a seafood restaurant called "Lenos Y Carbon" and "Miato" Restaurant offering international cuisine in Coco del Mar. 

There are also a great number of entertainment areas offering bars, nightclubs, lounges in areas such as Calle Uruguay, Zona Viva on Amador Causeway, Casco Viejo, San Francisco and many more. 

Shopping is great with many options to choose from. Several malls cater towards all kinds of shoppers, from budget shopping to ritzy shopping options offering a handful of designer options. The prices in Panama City vary greatly on where you shop. You can buy a can of domestic beer (called Balboa or Panama) in supermarkets for USD 1$ or a bottle of Californian wine for $4 - $5. One litre of milk costs approx. $1.30 and a 1.5 litre bottle of water can be bought for a dollar. However the designer stores offer their products at a price only a little cheaper than Canada or at the same prices. 

Panama City is a safe city and I did indeed feel safe in the day and at night. There are however, as with other major cities in the world, areas to stay clear of.


I visited a great deal of projects and apartments / condos in the city and you will find pictures of some of these below.

Visited the Santa Maria Golf and Country Club

This was one of the luxury homes in the Toucan Country Club and Resort

located across the Bridge of the Americas. The Toucan Country Club and

Resort is a 180 acre private gated golf community.

It had beautiful views of the City and Amador Causeway.



Wow! Look at this gym in the Riverside Building. Imagine working out to views

of the ocean.

Beautiful view of Casco Viejo (the Old City), a UNESCO World Heritage Site

from one of the condos in the Rivage building on Avenida Balboa.

Balboa. I was amazed how high this was!

A view of Ancon Hill and old Spanish style buildings. I really like the fact that the

city is full of palm trees.
