The New York Times highlights Costa Rica, Panama and Dominican Republic as destinations for 2012

Again, the region stands out as an attractive tourist destination.This time the Panamanian capital and two coastal communities in Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic are among the prime locations that The New York Times advised its readers to visit.

Panama City, in the first place

It’s been 12 years since Panama regained control of its channel, and the country’s economy is booming.Cranes include the skyline of the capital, where skyscrapers sprout one after another and immigrants arrive daily from around the world.Among those who have landed en masse in recent years and investors are foreigners who have invested in real estate in Panama by building hotels and the purchase of nursing homes.

Among the notable development projects is the Panama Canal itself, which is in the early stages of the expansion of billions of dollars.

Other high profile projects include the construction of three firsts: the Panamera, the first Waldorf Astoria hotel in Latin America (opening in June 2012), the Trump Ocean Club, the tallest building in the region, which opened its doors last summer, and the Bio Museum by Frank Gehry.

It also highlights the Casco Viejo, which is considered a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

Samana Peninsula, Dominican Republic, ranked 35

For years, the Samana peninsula, on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic was one of the remaining natural remnants of the Caribbean, largely intact due to its remote location.However, an international airport, El Catey, and a road that cuts the travel time from Santo Domingo, are bringing a new development.

Nosara, Costa Rica, ranked 41

With white sand beaches, warm waters and jade green and the waves, which are rarely very large, remote community of Nosara on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica has become the ideal place to learn to surfing.The beach Scripts, crescent-shaped, is a good starting point for hiking or visit the turtle sanctuary, and there are small boutique hotels and bars with live music.
