The small town of Balboa, Panama, is at the Pacific end of the canal and adjacent to Panama City. Once part of the U.S.-controlled Canal Zone, its former military buildings, barracks and officers' quarters have been converted to shops, offices, schools and luxury homes. The big buildings, broad tree-lined streets and wide lawns of Balboa—all laid out in an orderly U.S.-tropical-company-town style—provide a stark contrast to the narrow streets of the old parts of nearby Panama City.
