The El Panama Hotel, built in 1946, was designed by American architect Edward Durell Stone. The El Panama was one of the first hotels to incorporate cantilevered balconies into the construction of the resort. The hotel is still in business today.

This table card dates from 1956, advertising their Cabana Club Cooler.
