Panama Marinas

Is anybody familiar with any formidable marinas located on the pacific coast between panama city and the costa rica border.?

Is there a need for an upscale marina in the Hannibal Banks area

We were not able to locate the address:
Hannibal banks, panama
Most of the people we met transiting from the Caribbean to Pacific were only interested in getting to the Pacific islands.
I gt the impression that the coast to Costa Rica is an emerging area but mainly for people coming from the USA. From Panama every mile north you have to plug back into the wind and current to get to the Galapagos. So most people head south towards the Ecuador coast. I think Ecuador will be a good cruising destination soon.

Mind you, as there were no marinas in Panama City for sailing boats anywhere could be good! Go build a marina between the Bridge of the Americas and the City for sailing boats not power boats you will fill it to the brim.
