Was cool to pass places like the Museum of Diversity built by Frank Gehry and some interesting pockets of hotels and restaurant. Get glimpses of the sea and some pretty vegetation. Quite a bit narrower than expected!

It looks as in a movie, but with the freedom the ocean offers. You can walk along the sidewalk at sunset enjoying the blue-transparent water, and look at fish swimming right next to you, with ships and cruises moored to the pier. And the greatest look of PTY behind. Breathtaking

We rented a car and followed a friend of ours who lives in Panama until this causeway. Great place to eat and take a view the city. Recommended place.

Explore the shops on Flamenco island! If you go to the Mercado Artisanal, barter to get good prices. Ranchito restaurant was really good, nice view, delicious food
