Formerly Ft. Clayton, a US military base at the banks of the Panama Canal is now a large and very green residential area, surrounded by the Camino de Cruces National Park.

It's an area popular among Panamanians and foreigners alike and without doubt the most child-friendly neighborhood of Panama.

It's also home of the City of Knowledge, a non-profit set up to bring together NGO's & international aid organizations, academic institutions and technology companies.

While it's close to the city in distance, public transport is poor so taxis are your best bet. If you want to visit the Miraflores locks and its, you'll have to head out to Clayton.

The SACA bus terminal at Plaza Cinco de Mayo has buses leaving every 30-40 minutes to Clayton.
