One of the coolest places to stay in Panama City, Panama is the tallest building in Latin America. The Trump Ocean Club International Hotel is the hotel du jour in this city of exploding construction. The multi-storied lobby is peppered with edgy art, including a large mural made of American pennies forming a woman’s face – that can only be perceived from a distance. The rooftop pool deck is the end-of-the-day magnet. An infinity pool dares to protrude out to the skyscraper’s edge. It is hard to detect where the pool’s water ends and the Pacific Ocean begins. The lounge chairs’ feet are submerged in a few inches of shallow water, inviting you to wade in to grab a chair. It is completely delightful to saunter out to the pool area after a long hot day of sightseeing or canal-traversing. With an icy drink in hand, you can look across the waters’ edge and take in the Panama City skyline.
