This is an excellent way to walk for roughly three kilometers near the water. At the same time you have a super view of the city and all the various buildings. When the sun is shining it can be quite hot to walk.

It is likely a beautiful view, but due to construction one side is "closed with a construction wall" and the view is totally obstructed. So, we did not get to see anything close to what you see on the pictures. hopefully next time...

There is a temporary wooden fence extending along the causeway, blocking the view in one direction. Location of Museo de la Biodiversidad in Frank Gerry designed building.

Bicycle, walk, golf carts and even benches for a rest. Nice shops, restaurants, museum (check days and time) and hotels.

We were on a cruise ship and docked just down from the causeway. it's a great way to get some exercise and try the shops and restaurants. There is also a museum close by.

The Causeway is a pleasant site in Panama and should not be ignore by visitors. It offers the Bio-Diversity Museum if not to go in, at last to admire the architecture. It has the walk along the causeway with its view of Panama City and skyscrapers. One can rent bikes to ride along the paved shore and enjoy the scenery... More

Built during the Canal's construction (the landfill/causeway connects Panama City with the 3 small islands south of the mouth of the Canal), this road now offers hotels, restaurants and a soon-to-be-completed convention center to the tourist and city dweller alike. It parallels the Canal entrance so one can get a close-up view of the ships entering and leaving the Canal... More

Staying at Patty's Casitas in a 1 bedroom luxury condo in a 7 story building with views of the Panama Canal, Panama City skycap and mountains, it was a wonderful experience. you can walk the three miles of causeway, or just go a few minutes and sit down at the yacht center and have corvina, steak, chicken and drinks, relaxing...

We rented bikes at Moses at the start of the causeway and had a bad experience from the start. The bikes broke and the sidewalk is in disrepair. But the worst thing is that a HUGE barricade has been erected all along the causeway, blocking the view! It's ridiculous to bike along an ugly sidewalk with no view.
