The day we traveled over it, was a sunny beautiful day. A good luck at the canal and the boats. A little stand over the bridge you can buy gifts and take pictures and read some history'

This bridge is part of the Panamerica highway. It's not worth a visit, you can only pass is by car, no other ways. Should not be on the list of attractions.

If you driving out of Panama City, there is a place to get off of the highway just after you get off of the bridge so you can take your time seeing the start of the Panama Canal & the bridge.

Crossing this bridge provides an incredible view of the canal and the ships coming and going. Just crossing the bridge allows you to go from North to South America.

Not to sure why this would listed as anything... Yes, it is an engineering wonder and can give you great views of Panama but there is NO median in the middle. This can be VERY dangerous - especially when it is raining and at night. So all the passengers in the car be sure to enjoy the views but driver... More

This is a bridge, if you are really into bridges i guess this is a average ok bridge. For me it was just a bridge.

Nothing special, like a 1000 other bridges in the world, - The only interesting thing about it is, the view of the Panama Canal

A real technical marvel and well worth a visit. Wonderful views and you wonder how many people have used this since it was opened. Traffic flows are a major problem.

Crossing the connect between 2 continents is truly remarkable. I will always remember this to be a one of a kind experience. So beautiful there and so much to do. I remember my time spent in that country as precious.
