If you were ever a child, chances are you probably read the children’s novel, Alice in Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll.  It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world (the Wonderland of the title) populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures.

In the novel a white rabbits says, “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!” Alice follows him down the rabbit hole into Wonderland.  And of course you already know the rest of the fantasy story of Alice in Wonderland.

For the Christmas Holidays, Panama City Hall decorated the Cinta Costera with attractive settings using popular themes from Disney and other similar sources.  The exhibitions are well lighted and constitute an irresistible attraction to children and adults alike.  City Hall called the decorations, Villas Navideñas. They were inaugurated on December 19th and will remain open to the public until January 6th.

If you are family oriented, then this is the place to go during the evenings or weekends.  The Cinta Costera is the best venue for family recreation besides the Amador Causeway (Calzada de Amador).

Below are several pictures of the white rabbit of the aforementioned story.  After all these years, children are  still attracted to the white rabbit and his enormous clock.  Enjoy one of the best known characters of children’s universal literature.  Here we go.  (Kindly click on the photographs to enlarge them.  The effect is stunning.)

Under the lights the Villas Navideñas are absolutely gorgeous. If you live in Panama City, please bring your family, you won't regret it one bit. Photo ©Omar Upegui R.
