Pictures from Panama City: Old Panama and the modern city.
Old Panama (Panamá Viejo), Panama City.
Panama City is located at the Pacific entrance of the Panama Canal. It is the capital of the Republic of Panama. The archaeological site of Old Panama and the historic district of the city is a world heritage site (UNESCO).
Modern city, Panama City.
Panama City has the best infrastructure in all of Central America and has been among the top places for retirement in the world for several years. With an US style infrastructure (due to the 90 year American presence in the country), Panama City offers an easy transition, particularly for US retirees, in a safe country. It is a modern city with medical facilities, high-speed internet, first rate restaurants and shopping almost on a par with the US. Foreigners can buy properties in Panama with the same rights as Panamanians. However, the city no longer qualifies as a super-cheap destination since the cost of living and real-estate prices have risen significantly.
