I visited the Causeway several times while studying in Panama City. There is a good mix of restaurants, great views, and tourist activities. You catch the ferry to Isla Taboga from the Causeway, and that's a great trip!

Good place to stretch your legs or hire a four-wheel bicycle (two of you sit and pedal side-by-side, like a pedalo with wheels). We walked from the Biodiversity Museum to the islands and it was nice to do it at the end of the afternoon, when it was cool - a few places to eat, nothing extraordinary but good value... More

Nothing really to recommend it unless you like to hike or walk. Decent view off one side but barriers along the other.

If you want to catch a wonderful view of Panama's skyline then I suggest you head out to the causeway. It's great in the day but the sun can really drain you. I prefer the sunset evening stroll. The city completely lights up. Looks just like a mini Miami - only I think Panama just might have more skyscrapers. Some... More

Great place to get away from the congestion of the city. Plenty of places to eat, relax and take in the view. Filled with locals and tourists on the weekends. Watch our friend Sloth in the trees.

If you want feel the wind in your air and the ocean this is the perfect place. You can enjoy a nice time fishing, eat a delicious food or just ride a bicycle with your family. You can walk too. This place is just for fun and relax time. Welcome to Panama :)

The causeway provides a nice way to enjoy the water and an excellent view of Panama City. It's a nice walk with restaurants along the way. Stop at one that serves Panamanian cuisine rather than the more touristy "Americanized" spots. Aside from walking, you can rent bikes with canopies to shade you from the sun.

Visited the Causeway. Forget the name of the restuarant we ate at , but had great Panamian food. Located at the end of the Causeway.
