Lots of traffic but very nice kept. You will need to take it regardless were you are going. Nice view. BTW traffic in Panama City is the worst I have seen.

Clogged with traffic on weekends, you might ride a bike or just stoll since there's a few attractions like a Smithsonian Museum, convention center and some restaurants and marinas. By car late at night one can see the pearly lights of the Paitilla skyline of skyscrapers to the east.

Buses' timetable is unpredictable, Or pay attention to get a taxi on its way back to town. I took a taxi around the 5 de... More

We stayed at the County Inn on Calzada de Amador, and were delighted by the peace and quiet of the area. Yet, within just 2-4 km there were many great restaurants. Calzada de Amador is a great place to stay, as well as a great place to dine.

The sites of Panama City are priceless and you can see the many ships starting their journey through the canal. At night the ships waiting out in the ocean is like its own city with all the lights!!

Went there with local friends. Place was covered in police, and felt very secure. We went at night, and there were lots of playgrounds for the kids, which they loved. Local food vendors for snacks. The only thing we couldn't find was a bathroom (didn't really look to hard; one of the kids had a 'false' emergency). Never knew it... More

The Amador Causeway is a small strip of land going from Amador to a little island, with lots of restaurants and the city duty free shops. On one side of the strip you have a view on the numerous ships waiting to pass the Canal, on the other side is the impressive skyline of Panama City. You can walk or... More

It was very nice driving along the different Islands thru the Amador Causeway. You can also take advantage of the duty free stores and buy some perfumes, liquors or electronics devises free of taxes.
