In this Panama Special Report, we bring you one of the most modern and progressive neighborhoods in all of Panama City; San Fransisco.
San Francisco is Panama’s best option for living a quiet, residential, urban lifestyle.
If you want an urban experience in Panama City, but without the nuisances of persistent tourists, rowdy club-goers, nonstop casinos, solicitous women of the night, or any of the other seedier aspects of living in the city center, then San Francisco is the place to be.
Not many neighborhoods in Panama City match what San Francisco has to offer.
It’s close to the downtown center and distinctly urban, but the metropolitan vibe is low-key and much more relaxed than the other sought-after areas in the city center. There are skyscrapers here and there, but many vintage homes too, which is a rarity in central Panama City. There are some pubs and bars, but no nightclubs blaring music until the early hours of the morning.
This isn’t the Panama of beaches, coconuts, and laid-back living. This is an urban neighborhood with a young, modern, progressive culture. This is city living in Panama at its finest.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you the town of La Villa De Los Santos, located in the country’s Los Santos province.
This special report going into detail on the role that La Villa De Los Santos played in Panama’s path to independence. We have also included a section on the November holidays in Panama, of which there are many, including what, how, and where they are celebrated.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you Panama’s Pearl Islands.
The islands—the uninhabited ones, at least—are coated in a blanket of thick tropical marine forest with some areas of rare mangrove. This forest, together with rugged topography, cliffs, and rocky headlands, gives the islands a Jurassic Park feel. Innumerable sea birds wheel and dive around the cliffs, and dense tropical foliage hangs over the water, creating a wall of green that encases the beaches.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you a closer look at the District of Chame and its most popular town, Punta Chame, which—in high season—draws beach-goers of all stripes, from surfers, kite-surfers, sport-fishermen, extreme sport-lovers, etc.
While it shares the same stretch of coastline as expat hot spot Coronado (which has seen major development over the past decade), Chame remains largely undiscovered, unpenetrated, and underrated.
Located in the Panamá Oeste Province, Chame comprises 11 small towns that sprawl out along the Panamerican Highway. On the hour-and-a-half drive it takes to reach the area from Panama City, you pass national parks, sleepy hamlets, mountains, and mangrove forests before finally arriving at the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean.
In this Panama Special Report, we’ll introduce you to the Marbella area of Panama City.
Marbella and its surrounding area is Panama City’s banking district and the engine room of the country’s booming economy. The more than 100 glittering banks and financial institutions taking advantage of a highly favorable investment framework and legal structure. The area is also an upcoming place to live for expats wanting to be close to the city center.
