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 expat-friendly city of David, Panama.
David, population 145,000, is the capital city of the Province of Chiriqui. The province boasts Panama’s tallest mountain, its longest rivers feeding its most fertile valleys. David’s tropical Pacific climate is hotter and drier than Panama City, with average annual temperatures sitting at highs of 90°F, lows around 70°F.
In this Panama Special Report, we tour Panama’s Causeway in Amador, a former U.S. military outpost and Canal Zone recreation area that is today enjoying a multi-million dollar makeover.
The Amador Causeway has a long and winding history tied to the construction of the Panama Canal and the nearly 100-year occupation of the Canal Zone by U.S. military forces. Used first as a military base, Amador was later repurposed as a sprawling recreation area for the exclusive use of U.S. military personnel and their families. Languishing in neglect since the 1999 handover dictated by the Torrijos-Carter Treaty that returned the land to Panama, the Causeway is today the focus of an ambitious plan to transform it into a five-star residential community whose key feature, a cruise-ship terminal, will rival ports of call throughout the Americas.

In this Panama Special Report, we bring you the city of Chitré, located in Panama’s Herrera province.
Chitré is not just any sleepy old rural town and, in recent years, it has overtaken all of its neighbors and Chiriqui in terms of growth. According to the United Nations Development Program, it’s also a great place to live, enjoying Panama’s highest quality of life based on factors such as the education level of its population and life expectancy, measured in the Human Development Index.
