Panama City’s Coastal Hot Spots
Panama is the S-shaped isthmus bordering both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, meaning it has no shortage of coastline…
Oceanfront properties are available all around, but does it mean that every coastal property in Panama City is desirable? LIOS insider insight reveals Panama City’s costal hot spots—Calidonia, Punta Paitilla, and Punta Pacífica.
Calidonia, the subject of recent city wide infrastructural improvements, is a district of Panama City located along Avenida Balboa, with the Mercado de Mariscos at its westernmost limit. Rough around the edges, but on its way to become a great place to park money for long-term capital gains.
Punta Paitilla is on the coast, meaning prime urban beach space, plus it has some of the oldest condo towers in the city and easy access to the entire city.
In Punta Pacífica, the game is high-rise condominiums. No other neighborhood better represents the sudden and dramatic transformation of Panama City than Punta Pacífica.SKU: PSR-COASTAL-HOT-SPOTS

Smart Cities Around The World | Overseas Haven Report
A “smart city” is a city that’s smartly run. The city’s movers and shakers work together, think collectively, and use technology to make the city a better place for its residents, with sustainable (and often cost-cutting) innovations…
Smart cities are all about technology working behind the scenes to improve your lifestyle… you don’t even know it’s there, but it makes urban living easier, cleaner, healthier, more efficient, and generally more pleasant…
These cities have transportation that serve residents instead of hinder them. They have local planning laws, for example, that stipulate that tall buildings (businesses and apartment blocks) must be located on a bus route, so development is organized and contained to key “urban corridors of growth.” Transport and real estate work collectively rather than reactively.SKU: OHR-SMART-CITIES
