Yes, there is air pollution in panama big time! There is construction going on at almost every corner in the city, which greatly adds to the dirty air and particles of dust etc. Allergies are high. Respiratory problems are very frequent especially among children. The cars and diesel fuel create tremendous air pollution. We do have a constant breeze from the ocean which helps to clear the air a bit but on a stagnant hot humid day, the air pollution together with the heat can be very overwhelming. It is time to clean up Panama's air!
