Amador Causway used to be a US Naval Base. But not anymore. It is an amazing place to see the pretty people of Panama City. It has many great restaurants and a new museum. MUST SEE

Walking along the ocean gives a tourist another view of life in Panama City. Beautiful ocean side park obviously enjoyed by the residents who are walking, playing soccer, tennis, enjoying the playground. Even the intense traffic noise is subdued.

We rented bikes at the beginning of the causeway. Once we started driving down, we noticed they were doing construction on the city view side and had put up a huge wall. The wall went all the way to the first island, where we stopped, and blocked the view the entire time.

Unless you have a boat or ship at one of the marina's on the causeway the only reason you go here is for food, there are a few hotels there but still the main thing is food. The choices are generally the same all along the causeway some just cook it better than others. In my opinion it's all overpriced... More

Sorry to say as an avid user of Trip Advisor, recent reviewers amazingly failed to mention that the entire causeway is covered end to end with 10 foot tall, semi permanent wall boards bolted into the pedestrian walk while the causeway is significantly widened. Walking along you see NOTHING of the city views, just an ugly wall. And I mean... More

The Amador Causeway is a fun place to visit. This is the place you can visit to eat out and have a lovely view of Panama City, the Panama Canal and lot of ritzy boats or sailboats, on a lovely day. One could bike or walk, it certainly is a lovely way to spend the Sunday afternoon, having an ice... More

The causeway provides a nice area for walking/jogging, but also has a stretch of old barracks that have been converted into discos. There are also a number of very good restaurants to choose from and duty-free shopping. The Marina offers tours.

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.

A quiet walk to take pictures and enjoy the many bars and restaurants. Very clean and with extraordinary views. If you arrive by taxi, be careful with the transport to go back to your hotel. 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
