Costa del Este is a part of the city, in front of the sea, that has been built for people who can afford hight prices for housing. The place is well planned. Kept clean. Has all they're needs covered.

I dont think this is a place of panama you would visit if you are around for pleasure. All you have there is big modern buildings a very nice area for you to live and work, but not much the tourist would like to see.
