This causeway is crucial to visit the islands at the mouth of the Canal on the Pacific side. Because of the causeway, there are several restaurants, some shopping & also several marinas. As well, I believe ferry service if offered to some of the Pearl Islands? There's a combination walkway/bikeway for some exercise. It's also where the new Convention Center... More

Fascinating to watch the huge ships maneuver go by as they entered or exited the canal. A little over 2 miles long (I was told) but can rent bikes on either end or take a cab for a few dollars. All the cab drivers we used during our stay were great. Not one tried to rip us off and they... More

Went there for dinner and had a great time with friends. Lots of restaurants and bars to hang out while having a great time. During the day you can also go and perform different exercising and outdoor activities. Bucaneros restaurant is extremely recommended.

The boardwalk is nice, you see a lot of people walking or jogging. The beaches around Panama City are not nice at all, so this is more like muddy flats rather than sand.

I spent about two hours in this nice place. You can enjoy walking, jogging, roller skating or jut riding your bike in this place (you can rent one). As you walk , you can also enjoy the view of the sea, the alcatraz birds fishing and the breeze. Of course, when I was there, the weather was nice: not too... More

If you are not traveling by Hop on Hop off Bus you won't see a lot at the moment. They are still building the new path so the view is closed. But there is much more to do in Panama. If you would like some more information about what to do in Panama with insider tips visit ourstepinto.com where we... More

Not much to see with the fence blocking the view. Super hot walk as the breeze is also blocked. Might be nice once the construction is finished. It was a little too touristy for me.

Why on Earth they put this wall keeping us from viewing the astonishing Panama City Skyline?? The iconic Romantic and beautiful Causeway I remember with the Ocean on both sides is so sadly gone!! It's funny to read some of the Grafitti; "What are you hiding?"

This area is a great place for all different groups and ages. As you drive down the road you can see the vast ocean for miles. There's places to rent bikes for families to ride down the road. There's some gelato shops, souvenir stores, and restaurants with amazing sea food. I recommend a visit!

A three mile long bicycle path with the Panama Canal on one side and the city scape on the other should begogeous! But no.....!! Some blockhead puts up sheet metal barriers blocking view on both sides!
