Modern comforts mixed with tropical beauty…

 Panama offers both the comforts of a modern metropolis and the natural beauty of tropical paradise.  http://travel.yahoo.com/p-travelguide-487663-panama_city_vacations-i

Spectacular Architecture

This beautiful neogothic structure is one of my favorite churches here in Panama.  It is located near the Hotel El Panama right in the center of town.  http://epiac1216.wordpress.com/2009/02/19/the-beauty-of-a-gothic-church-in-panama/

Another Glimpse of the City

This photograph was taken from the Casco Antiguo looking out over the bay towards the city.  Panama is an incredible city no matter what angle you look at it from. http://www.lonelyplanet.com/panama/panama-city

Nightscape

This picture was taken at the Cinta Costera on Avenida Balboa.  The city shines and glows under florescent and neon lights as a cool breeze drifts in from the bay.

Feel the Energy of Casco Antiguo

Come walk down the quiet brick streets of the Casco Antiguo. Feel the energy and get infected with the  good vibes that flow from the cafes, restaurants, shops and art galleries.  http://cascoviejo.com/

Casco Antiguo

When you enter the Casco Antiguo, you enter into a whole new world.  Here, in this section of the city, the pace is slower and more laid back.  You are transported back in time and the modern world and the breakneck pace seem to disappear. This is a place to relax and share a delicious meal, a cup of coffee or a nice cold drink.  Whatever you choose to do, Casco Antiguo never disappoints its visitors.  http://cascoviejo.com/

La Cinta Costera

The Cinta Costera is a recreational area right dab in the center of the city.  It is located on Avenida Balboa and is visited by thousands of people each day. Some go to skate, others to ride bikes, and some go to sit leisurely and unwind as they catch the ocean’s cool breeze.  http://cintacostera.com/

Another Day in Paradise

Unique Architecture

Panama has grown by leaps and bounds in the past few years.  Every day new buildings are unveiled and it seems that the city’s architects try to outdo themselves by implementing unique and innovative designs.  This is the famous “corkscrew” building which is located on Calle 50.  It is a definite must see for anyone visiting the city.
