On my trip to Panama City, I took a cab from the Albrook Mall to San Francisco. The cab driver used the new Cinta Costera, which was under construction on my last trip in December of 2008.
This new double decked expressway opened a week before my trip. The drive from Albrook Mall to San Francisco took about a third of the time it would have taken driving any other way.
I probably should have taken more photos this time, but I just didn’t think about it until we were about ready to exit the Cinta Costera. This is a very nice improvement for Panama City. I have heard that they made some mistakes, but I don’t know what they are. To me it was the best ride I have ever had on Panama City streets.
