What To Expect in Avenue Balboa

Is Balboa Avenue the right place for you? Balboa Avenue is the perfect neighborhood for those who want to be at the center of the action. With tons of dining, nightlife, and shopping options to choose from it’s common that capital dwellers from elsewhere in the city will often make a trip to Balboa Avenue for a night out, or to do some shopping. 

It goes without saying, then, that residents of this hot neighborhood love the advantages of having so much to do right outside their front door.

Those who choose to live on Balboa Avenue include a diverse mix of Panamanians and expats from all over the world. While the area is popular with professionals who work in the financial district and surrounding offices, there are also plenty of retirees and families who also enjoy taking advantage of Balboa Avenue’s prime location and recreational offerings.

Your real estate options on Balboa Avenue are almost strictly limited to soaring skyscrapers, so if you dream of a yard and a white picket fence, it’s probably not for you. However, what these condos might lack in terms of plentiful outdoor space, they more than make up for with top-notch amenities, great social areas, and incredible views. Plus, who wants to worry about mowing a lawn when there is so much to do? This is one part of the city that really embraces urban living at its finest.

Add to that the proximity to Casco Viejo, the amazing Cinta Costera greenspace, and other popular areas of Panama, and you can see why residents of Balboa Avenue feel like they live at the center of the world and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Living and Exploring Avenue Balboa

When it comes to life in Balboa Avenue, one thing everyone agrees with is that there is always plenty to do. For those who enjoy spending time outdoors, you’re just steps away from the Cinta Costera. This coastal beltway is a favorite spot for residents to break a sweat, whether it’s jogging, biking, rollerblading, or just taking in the sights during a relaxing stroll.

As far as dining options go, you might as well have the world at your fingertips when it comes to restaurants. Whether you’re looking for somewhere you can make a reservation for a special meal out, or a destination to grab a quick bite to eat, Balboa Avenue has plenty of choices for you.

While there are tons of places to dine on more traditional Panamanian dishes, where Balboa Avenue really shines is in its international food offerings. Apart from having a vibrant restaurant scene, Balboa Avenue is also one of the most popular destinations in the city when it comes to nightlife offerings. While there are plenty of bars, lounges, and nightclubs scattered throughout the area, the greatest concentration is on and around Calle Uruguay. 

Beyond access to dining and nightlife options, Balboa Avenue is also incredibly convenient when it comes to the necessities of day to day life. There are tons of banks, pharmacies, gyms, and businesses in the area that make running errands a breeze.

For groceries, the largest store near Balboa Avenue is the Riba Smith on Calle 45 Este. Considered by some to be the best grocery store in the city, Riba Smith stocks everything you could need in the way of packaged foods and drinks, fresh produce, meat, and household goods. The store is known for being incredibly clean and well organized, making grocery shopping enjoyable. The only downside is that the store often has more customers than there are parking spots, so patience is key.

For all of your other shopping needs, there are plenty of mid-sized shopping centers located along Balboa Avenue including the Balboa Boutiques strip mall and Plaza Uruguay. These shopping centers don’t offer everything you could need, but each has a number of stores and dining options that are convenient for grabbing lunch and doing some window shopping or spending an afternoon with friends.

For bigger shopping trips, head to MultiCentro Mall where Balboa Avenue meets Via Israel. Here you’ll find everything you could possibly want in the way of shopping and dining with plenty of stores offering both Panamanian and international brands.
