Central america's hidden gem, and it's nice to see those low rise neighborhoods that are rarely shown in Panama city threads.

Nice pics... Panama is amazing

:cheers:
Nice to see you surfing away from your neighborhood. It's also safe to say that skyline photos appeal to everyone regardless of favorite forum.

Do you have any night pictures?
No night pictures. You still havn't told me which war you were apologizing for in your post at the 7th. slot.

Panama city has a great skyline, but needs some more office towers though...
Just for you, here are a few office towers in the financial district.

Panama City currently has enough (not all seen here) office towers and would add as it becomes necessary. Given the city limits, rapid population growth, protection of the rainforest and watershed, vertical housing is of the essence.

'89 Operation Just Cause.
That was no war. That was good old fashion yankee overkill. Instead of a surgical strike to get one man (Noriega), the "colateral damage" obliterated an entire city district - El Chorrillo (pictured at the top of this thread) and took several hundred innocent lives.

Frankly, these pictures don't do justice to Panama, they're quite outdated and they don't really show the nicer parts of the city.
I second that!! ;)

That's not very accurate. Actually, there is a Free Trade Zone, the Colon Free Trade Zone, but it was founded very time ago, and it's the second biggest in the whole world, next to Hong Kong.
