Often referred to as the Dubai or Singapore of Latin America, Panama City experienced growth at a breakneck pace over the past 15 years and transformed itself as the business capital of Latin America. Today, the city’s iconic skyscraper skyline would be almost unrecognizable from photos from even just a decade or two ago.
Another transformation has been Panama City’s nightlife. Pubs and clubs, pop music concerts, food and beer festivals, flashy casinos, red-light districts, punk-rock shows, tattoo expos—the city’s late-night lights are brighter than ever.
The city has a multitude of surroundings and lifestyle options. You could live in a bohemian student hub or a run-of-the-mill, working-class neighborhood… on a hill side surrounded by lush jungle or an upper-floor condo surrounded by ocean views… in a new planned suburban neighborhood full of modern conveniences or a 17th-century historical site full of romantic charm…
You can never read too much about what will be one of the biggest decisions you’ll make in life: where to live… And with Panama City, you have a seemingly unlimited number of options.
