Amador Causeway, San Francisco Terrawind or Paitilla Luna?

Hello, We have booked the Country Inn Amador for our stay in Panama City. However, I have the opportunity to book a condo either in the San Francisco Terrawind or Paitilla Luna. I know a condo would be more spacious for our family of 6 but I want to make sure we have some things to do nearby. Does anyone know anything about these neighborhoods? We will be traveling with our children, ages 13, 20, 22 and 24 and will arive in Panama City late next week. We will have already been on a houseboat for 2 days in the Canal doing fun things like swimming in waterfalls, kayaking and seeing the canal, etc. Also, any recommendations for things to do will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

Paitilla is more centrally located, you can walk to shopping and dining,

The Country inn is fine - just not close to anything other than the Causeway

San fransisco - more residential - nice area just would not stay there on vacation.

No not near the ocean, but near the bay of Panama (which goes out into the ocean). There is no beach in Panama City area at all.

The best Pacific beach area is about 1-1/2 hours from the city.

Yes, I would say the causeway area is interesting.

We have been offered a condo on Avenida Balboa. Is this a good location?

Thanks so much for your help!

The condo isn't available for our first night so we may stay at the Country Inn Amador for this night and then move to Balboa. Does this sound like a good plan to you, knowing the areas as you do?

Thanks for your help!
