This is a new and upcoming area just outside of central Panama City. Many larger businesses are re-locating here. Plenty of high end residences. And with this comes the restaurants of all calibers including a new IHOP. My favorite stop after dinner is Forever Yogurt which is just outstanding, clean and fairly priced.

When we moved to Panama 10 years ago we chose a condo in Costa del Este (CdeE). At the time we really didn't know Panama City or CdeE.

Due to the congestion and lack of real estate to expand in the present Panama city, Panama looked eastward for expansion. The architectures are very novel and creative, in this area are found offices of practically businesses in the world. However the residents are of the more affluent of the republic.

I dont think this is a place of panama you would visit if you are around for pleasure. All you have there is big modern buildings a very nice area for you to live and work, but not much the tourist would like to see.

Not sure if it qualifies as a scenic spot as it is a new business district, but if you have access to a tall building, the view across the bay is impressive, a bit like high rises in Hong Kong or Dubai.

As someone else mentioned, you really think you're in Miami. All new and fresh, very modern. Large streest and excellent options for housing. There are a lot of good restaurants and options for leisure.
