At this minute there is a massive construction project going on along the causeway and there are blinder walls and high traffic along the road. You can hardly see anything and it's dangerous. It looks like the project is moving very slowly and the whole area just looks like a garbage dump. I don't understand however even if the project... More

The causeway is a great spot to cruise. It has restaurants, a small mall nearby and an area where people can bike ride or simply walk and feel the sea breeze. The restaurants at the end are cozy and delicious.

This is obviously the warm weather, tourist season stop, geared to tours and cruise ships. The view of the city across the water is worth the trip. I was with a guide who explained how the causeway was built, the Smithsonian facility, the harbor, etc. My lunch was a tour lunch at Bucanero's, which overlooks the yacht harbor. It was... More

A good place to see ships entering and leaving the canal. Many shops and restaurants. If you have time for a day trip, catch the ferry to Taboga Island. $14 round trip gets you an hour ride each way. Taboga is tropical paradise with the second oldest Catholic church in the western hemispere.

Ok, so my group which was mostly men belly-ached the majority of the time. We wanted the bicycles for 4 and nearly died in the heat trying to peddle but it is something fun to do and looking out at the water was magical. This is more of a romantic outing and not one I would suggest for a group.... More

I liked the place, variety of restaurants and the aquarium that is close was nice. I think it can be a good walk if the weather is cool

The causeway is 3 miles long (mas o menos). It has its purpose to protect against high tides among others. There are benches along a long stretch so you can sit there, talk and enjoy the scenery. But it is being widened and views are blocked. There are many places to choose from for dining and other activities.

Loads of construction right now but can just imagine how amazing it looks without it. It sucks because you can't catch the views on a camera if you're in a car as it's only one lane driving so put some time aside to walk down and catch some great pics and ride bicycles. Loved it.
