Spent three nights with my wife at Nitro City in early October and really enjoyed our stay. It was part of our first-ever trip to Panama. Some friends who are big Travis Pastrana fans told us about it as it is named after his Nitro Circus show on MTV. So has an action-sports theme to it. The resort is 1.5 hours from Panama City at the end of a peninsula called Punta Chame and it has incredible views of the Panama coastline. Lots to do...motocross, kite surfing, wake boarding, skate park, sky diving, paddle boarding, ATV, kayaking, game room, swimming pool, fishing, scuba, and more. Their grand opening isn't until December 2011 so some activities weren't ready yet. The skate park was being built while we were there. Looks like it will be cool when done. It's on the resort grounds and right next to the Wake Lake, a small man-made lake that has a cable park - an electronic pulley system that takes wake boarders around the lake and over ramps and rails. We had a blast on it. My wife, who has never wake boarded was able to get up rather easily. We also did some paddle boarding out in the sea. The swim pool has the most amazing views and their onsite restaurant food was surprising really good, especially the Thai dishes. The place is brand new and the rooms modern, yet comfy. Personal jacuzzi on the private deck was nice touch, although we had trouble figuring out how to program it. Had to call staff to help us. They have a few other kinks to work out, but just mainly minor stuff. Definitely a place you can make what you want out of it. Relax or play hard, or mixture of both. Would also be great place to bring kids who are into action sports, but probably no younger than 8 years old. Will be interesting to see how this unique concept does over time. We certainly enjoyed it, so hopefully there are on to something.
