Covering an area of 1500 acres, the project's estimated cost will be Rs. 1041 crores and it will take about three years. There will be a telescope gallery for planet watching, an astronomical observatory, an open-sky viewing deck, a hotel, an amphitheater, and a cafe.

5. Till about a few years back, the Mexico Beach on the Gulf of Mexico was a small-town and little known in the tourist circles. The place has been gaining popularity in recent years. The entire beach town is home to about 1060 people and is about 45km from Panama City. There are no traffic lights, and the city is almost on the beach. The sand on the beach is typical and rare - it is made of quartz crystal. It is known for being soft and has the unique property of remaining cool even on the hottest days. There is more to the town - the artificial reef system that is tried and tested for scuba diving and snorkeling.
