No need to hire a taxi! Take the subway or any buss to the Albrook Mall nd from there the Amador bus! One the best routes I know around the world and passing just in front of the nely opened Bio Museum.

Cruise passengers who come into the port of Amador can hike or rent bicycles if they want to just enjoy the causeway and get great views of the Panama Canal and the skyline of Panama City. There are numerous restaurants of all types located along the causeway and a very large souvenir shop with arts and crafts from not just... More

Traveling the Amador causeway out to an island is quite nice...although there is a lot of construction going on to widen the road. At the end you will find several great restaurants and a very nice marina with super yachts. Charter fishing, dining and equipment rentals can all be had out here. Will be going back to walk, shop and... More

If you want to have a great panoramic view of Panama City, this is the place to go. With the view of all the skyscrapers, you'll take great pictures from the Amador Causeway. There are restaurants and duty free shopping places.

This is a beautiful place adjacent to Panama City. There are yacht harbors here, as well as a number of great restaurants, bars, and shopping. This is an excellent place to escape the hustle bussel of downtown Panama City.

We walked the entire causeway and there are some great views along the way. Unfortunately the causeway is being renovated and enlarged so there is construction barricades along the way on both sides. There are bar/restaurants also along it so you can stop and have some fun. Stop by the Smithsonian Station and view their exhibits ($5.00 fee).

We went out the causeway and stopped for a drink at the end. Fabulous view of the city. There is a fair amount of construction however, as it appears that they are widening the access, so be prepared for some minor delays along the way. Panama City traffic can be pretty challenging.

We went for a walk in the evening on the Calzada hoping for a scenic walk to the 3 islands. Both sides were boarded up. I'm guessin because of industrial equipments? Not sure! What is sure is that there is no view at all at this time! There are a lot of restaurants with view on the boards. Probably nicer... More

The Amador Causeway was so relaxing compared with the city. The views of the bay and city skyline are splendid. It's a perfect place to eat out or just sit for a gelato or coffee with friends or family on a sunny day.
