Panama City is definitely in North America, with the continental boundary for me being the rugged Darien Gap at the base of the isthmus. That said, Panama City's skyline is too glassy shiny for me, as I'm no fan of a hundred look-alike glass icicles along a beach.

Dude ask us, Panamanians, if we feel part of Central America and there you will get your answer. Btw, you cant argue with a Panamanian about where we are or what we feel.

Historically, we are part of South America.
Culturally, we are part of the Caribbean.
Geographically, although the Isthmus of Panama rose from the ocean 3 million years later than the rest of CA, we are part of Central America.

Panamanians will tell you that we are just Panama and that is it. If you ask Central American people, they will tell you that Panama is not part of CA and that is why they usually say: CA and Panama. According to them, CA is formed by Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.

And you cannot adopt something that does not need to be adopted nor does it want to be. Thank you very much. Tres bien merci.

this might help: North American Countries - National Geographic

by the way, for me, North America's best skyline is:
1. New York
2. Chicago
3. Seattle
4. Toronto
5. Vancouver

Your city is here is because of this is base on the international recognition and thats nothing we can do about it.

No offense taken!

Btw your video is from 2009 (old) since then, Panama has changed a great deal. If you want to see what it looks like nowadays, check the Panamanian forum out. Something else, in your video, we can only see the Coastal Belt Line, which is only a part of the city, there are many more areas and things to see and do in Pty.

I never know quite how to rank Mexico City. Besides Reforma, are there any concentrations of tall buildings?

I see, thanks. Mexico City seems to be building lots over 100 m. It might look very different in 5 years.
