Took a taxi ride over to the Causeway, but once I got there I didn't even get out the taxi! It was empty and run down...maybe I went there too early in the day!

Construction in process.....galvanized fences blocking views. Some restaurants are open. There is the newly opened Biodiversity museum on the strip. Apart from dining, walking or possible bike riding.....nothing much to do/see at this time. Short, pleasant drive from city.

Road works made it impossible to have a view of the city. The Duty Free shop was a rip-off. Don´t waste your time in it.

Plan a late afternoon stroll along the causeway for a nice view of the city of Panama and sunset. Many families, biking, eateries at the end of causeway. Not sure how safe after dark.

Thanks to other Trip Advisor reviews of the Amador Causeway, we were mostly prepared for what we encountered. We had our Uber driver drop us off at the very end of the causeway at the Fuerte Amador Resort and Marina so that we could hike back toward the city. We didn't realize that the construction impacted the entire length of... More

Great view of the Pacific and the ships waiting to enter the locks. One side has a fence temporarily installed for construction, so nothing to see there but the restaurants on either end are great.

Nice place to visit when in Panama. Great panoramic view of Panama City. Several restaurants to choose for a lunch or dinner. One can rent a bike or a four wheeler if you don't want to walk. There is a free duty store at the very end of the causeway for your shopping pleasure. A nice place to spend a... More

A long strip connecting the city to small islands with lots to do and see: Biomuseum, Point Culebra ( Smithonian), park, side walk facing the Canal, restaurants and two piers, one close to Ranchito Resyaurant at Pt. Culebra and another close to Balboa Yatch Club if you wish to visit islands nearby.
