Getting There

This district is located 5 kilometers east of downtown Panama city and is accessed by the Corredor Sur national highway system as well as Cincuentenario Avenue.

Here you will find sleek skyscrapers and many gated communities with single-family homes and duplexes as well as great dining, shopping, and entertainment options.

What to Expect

Many residents enjoy a short commute to numerous corporations with offices in the area. They also send their children to schools nearby. 

Residents can happily spend most of their time right in their neighborhood without the necessity of going anywhere else. Here you find serene and peaceful streets, and plenty in the way of dining, shopping, and nightlife, 

When residents want to venture out, they can access both Tocumen International Airport and downtown Panama City. All within an easy 15-minute drive, offering the best of both worlds.

Is this area right for you?

There’s no doubt that this is a desirable area to live in and, as such, is highly sought after in terms of real estate. 

It is especially popular with expats who favor a more relaxed pace of life found outside of the city center. Residents hail from all over, but this is one area that is home to many wealthy expats from elsewhere in Latin America. 

You’ll still find all of the amenities here that you might enjoy in some of Panama City’s more centrally located neighborhoods. But with a relaxed vibe that many consider being more livable. 

Schools and Work

An abundance of high-quality international schools is one reason that expats with families are eager to move here. Colegio Brader, Saint Augustin’s School, and Oxford International school amongst others are all nearby. 

Many professionals also choose to call Costa del Este home due to a large number of corporations that have offices in the area. Telefonica Panama, Bladex, Maersk, DHL Express, and Copa Airlines all have large scale offices here.

Finally, when you consider the variety of options available for dining, shopping, or heading to the spa, it’s no wonder that this is a popular choice for Panama City residents looking to pamper themselves.
