Properties in Rio Abajo PanamaRio Abajo is a West Indian neighbourhood, inhabited by people who came from the Antilles. This lively, Creole-speaking population adds colour and verve to the area, mixing its culture with Panama's. Because of this Caribbean vibe Rio Abajo's main contribution has been to the world of music - in the name of El General, or Edgardo A. Franco, who helped elevate reggae to its status today.
