The Cinta Costera or Coastal Strip is the place to be in Panama City. Ever since it was inaugurated during the Martin Torrijos administration, it has become the meeting place of the city dwellers.
The strip borders the Panama Bay with cool ocean breezes, ample open green spaces, special lanes for pedestrians and bicycles, sports installations and just about everything you need to enjoy yourself. The place has become so hot, the current president decided to expand it all the way to the Old Shell (Casco Viejo) making it even more attractive to both local and foreign visitors.
During the next few days, I’ll be posting pictures of this vibrating place so you will get an idea of how the new and old Panama look like. Today is the first picture to open the curtain, so to speak. Here we go.
