Panama City is a dy­namic me­trop­o­lis

AT THE CROSS­ROADS OF TWO oceans and two con­ti­nents, Panama City is a dy­namic me­trop­o­lis. That’s never been truer than it is to­day. Every­where in this steamy, trop­i­cal town are for­eign in­vestors talk­ing shop in up­scale cafés, ex­pat for­tune-seek­ers toast­ing their fates in wine bars, cranes stalk­ing the rooftops of a sky­line that seems to grow be­fore your eyes and — on the down­side — traf­fic that puts even the most con­gested Amer­i­can city to shame. Cen­tral Amer­ica’s cap­i­tal of in­ter­na­tional finance is in the midst of a pro­longed boom­town fever. Over the past decade, Panama has en­joyed the fastest grow­ing econ­omy in Latin Amer­ica.

As a re­sult, new ho­tels and restau­rants have sprouted across the cap­i­tal. Healthy com­pe­ti­tion is keep­ing stan­dards high, and Panama City has a plethora of top-qual­ity, lux­ury ex­pe­ri­ences for cut prices.
