Best nightlife beach town close to panama city??

Im going to Panama City for a few days in Jan. with a buddy of mine. We want to spend a night or two in a beach town. I know these places are not jumping with nightlife, but we are looking for the town with the most action. These are the towns I found Punta Chame, Gorgona, Coronado, Rio Mar, Santa Clara and Playa Blanca.

Go to the disco/club at Deacameron, you don't have to stay there to get in.

There is not much nightlife in the small towns, there are local hangouts where a lot of beer is consumed but not sure I would call it nightlife.

Relax at the beach and party in Panama City.

And the small towns, are really just a couple of fondas and local bars and markets. Not really "towns" as you know them. Decameron is your best bet, but you would want to stay nearby if you plan on drinking - avoid the Panamerican Highway at night.

I guess out of those you might find stuff happening between Coronado, San Carlos and Santa Clara but not a whole heck of a lot. As above the disco at Decameron.

Chame there's really nothing there other than the windsurf camp and Gorgona only has a local hangout in the middle of town - was owned and run by an American, not sure if he's still there - he was having some special weekends last year.
