If you ever have the opportunity for your employer to send you to Panama City, whether it’s a relocation or a temporary work project, jump on it! The food, weather, and culture alone are worth the flight time. But once in Panama City, where is the best location for you to call “home”? We’ve compiled a detailed Panama City neighborhood guide to help you make the final decision a bit easier. This way, you can spend more time daydreaming about working from the beach and less time stressing about the details.
First on the list is the lovely district of Balboa. Located at the waterside Pacific entrance of the Panama Canal, it is one of the most under crowded locations in Panama City. Being just far enough outside the hustle and bustle of the main city centre, it is a much quieter and more tranquil district compared to the others nearby. It also has the added bonus of being right on the water. There are a ton of things to do in the area from movie theaters and restaurants to activity centres for business meetings. If safety and children are on your mind, Balboa has many schools, fire departments, and police stations nearby as well. More importantly, our Riverside location is a stunning way to maintain your lifestyle in the most tropical of countries.
Second up we have the coastal district of Marbella. If Balboa sounded a bit too relaxed for you, Marbella mixes things up. While this district also has a breathtaking view of the water, it is much more vibrant. Decorating almost every inch of this part of town there are many vintage buildings dating back to the 1950’s and 1970s. As such, it attracts many creative types such as artists, musicians – those in marketing would fit in nicely! Marbella also has a reputation for having a lively nightlife for you night owls! Our Vista Del Mare building in Marbella is an understated location for you to experience the district’s activities.
During the 2008 recession, Panama got out relatively better off than many other countries. While many countries began counting pennies as stock prices plummeted, many districts in Panama City began a prosperous growth. The area around Punta Paitilla is one of the those, and over the better part of the past decade, it has seen an explosion in the construction of high-rises and a boom in business development, all around a thriving neighborhood. The spirit of industrialism prospered just blocks away, yet Punta Patilla retained its traditional 1960’s South American charm, while taking advantage of the local economic growth. You can walk through a charming maze of streets that have not changed in decades. If you’re looking for something similar to what you would find in an upscale apartment back home, our Pacific Sun location has you covered! Merge western design with South American influence and the result is an apartment you won’t want to leave, despite being in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
