Diablo Panama is one of several neighborhoods in Panama that were once a part of the American Canal Zone. In Panama, Diablo is referred to as one of the “areas revertedas” or reverted areas which describe the neighborhoods that were once under American control over the Canal. Diablo is unique in that its location is very close to the city center, yet the surroundings feel more like a tropical rain forest. This is because the neighborhood still has many 100 year-old trees along with lots of wildlife native to Panama.
Although Diablo Panama may at first glance appear to be an area surrounded by nature and possibly isolated from the the rest of Panama City, that really is not the case. There are several 24 hour grocery stores in Diablo Panama and just across the street is the Albrook neighborhood where one can find plenty of shops and restaurants along with a new Power Club Gym, Deli Gourmet, Sushi House and the El Rey American style supermarket. Diablo Panama is also the launching pad for many boats — both recreational and industrial — that are accessing the Panama Canal, and one can sit along the banks of the canal to watch large tankers go by throughout the day.
Real estate options in Diablo Panama are defined by the era in which they were built. Many of the homes available for sale and rent in Diablo are split level wooden homes that have been preserved and renovated over the years, meaning apartments for rent in Diablo Panama typically are better constructed and more spacious than neighboring Panama City apartments. Homes in the Diablo area are typically built on ¼ acre or larger lots and feature up to six bedrooms each. Some apartments in Diablo for rent are actually single family homes that have been converted.
In general, Diablo Panama offers a more suburban, jungle feel than typical apartments downtown. It’s close proximity to downtown is ideal for families and it’s unique architectural touches reflect, more than most neighborhoods in the capital, Panama’s storied past.
