In this Panama Special Report, we bring you the areas of Albrook and Clayton, Panama City.
Both Albrook and Clayton originated as part of the Panama Canal Zone. The infrastructure and neighborhoods were built by U.S. engineers to be used by the U.S. armed forces. When the U.S. government turned the Panama Canal over to the Panamanians 10 years ago, Clayton and Albrook came as part of the package. In the decade since, these two communities have developed into quiet, peaceful residential areas with parks, single-family homes, some of the best schools in Panama, and small retail areas. Perfect if you’re relocating with a family but very appealing, too, if you’re just looking for a more suburban experience.
We understand that living in city-central El Cangrejo, Paitilla, or Marbella, isn’t for everyone. The traffic gridlock, blaring car horns, and endless construction can be hard to take. Maybe you’re looking for a more tranquil place to call home down here in the Hub of the Americas, somewhere that’s both peaceful and quiet and, as well, still supported by the services and amenities of downtown Panama City.
In this case, Clayton and Albrook, two areas only minutes from the city center, are good options.
Since being handed control of the canal from the United States, Panama has blazed a trail of economic advancement and prosperity, a course it’s still on today. The results are plain to see: a recently expanded canal, skyscrapers left and right (and new ones being built), and additional lines for the city metro system getting established…
Panama is synonymous with growth and is well on the way to achieving its goal of becoming the logistics and transportation hub par excellence for the region.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you the lively town of Bocas del Toro, Panama.
Panama’s Bocas del Toro archipelago in the Caribbean is one of this country’s most popular tourist destinations. It’s also an interesting lifestyle and retirement choice for anyone looking for the island life, and this quintessential Caribbean destination of white-sand beaches and clear turquoise waters is home to a friendly and welcoming community of just under 7,500 people.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you one of the most fun and eccentric neighborhoods in Panama City; El Cangrejo.
El Cangrejo’s mix of people from all over the world offers an interesting mix of cultures. Many regard El Cangrejo as Panama City's most lively and expat-friendly area. The neighborhood is walkable and offers an abundance of tree-lined streets under which to grab some shade and perhaps a bite to eat. If you are interested in living in Panama City, this is one of the first places we recommend you look.
