Last year, Nicaragua's economy grew by 3.8 percent, the second worst performance of the 20 Latin American nations.
The BCCR raised its forecast for economic growth this year from 4.3% to 4.5%, while Costa Rica ECLAC estimates for growth of just 3.2%.
The economy grew by 4.6% in 2013, driven by private consumption, exports and government spending.
The consulting firms Indesa and Deloitte estimate that Panama's economy will grow by seven to eight percent this year.
"In any case, 7.5% is still a favorable growth level and will continue to be one of the region's highest."
