beautiful drive

Was worth driving on this despite the wrong turns- both at day and night. I'd recommend driving on it- or get in a cab and ask the driver to take you for a drive.

The Causeway has great views of the city and is extremely convenient in getting around...especially to the Metropolitan Park and Dorado beach!

Causeway Amador is a place to spend a whole afternoon for a walk, ride a bicycle, for excercise or have a great time with the family before you have a nice dinner at Isla Flamenco; you can find several restaurants in all three islands connected with th main road.

I endet up hopping from one palm tree to another because the sun was burning so hot and you can't really get away from it all the way up. It is also hard to get on and off the Path because the pedestrian paths are not very clear and especially not dense. I ended up running over the street twice,... More

There is not much here. This is where visitors from the cruse ships come ashore. There are a few restaurants, expensive souvenir shops, and a duty free store. Don't expect much to be open if there are not ships in port.

We had intended to rent bikes, but glad we decided to walk. Some of the areas are still under construction starting at the first island, and the sidewalks are ripped up. We walked from the beginning out the whole way. It was hot so we did not climb the hills. Had ice cream at the first island (opened 11am). Walk... More

So riding a bike along this road apparently is a must-do in Panama City. I don't get it. It's a straight piece of road with water on either side - and nothing else to see, except a few tourist trap restaurants and shops. The four-seater bikes for hire need a gear shift, as you exert way too much energy to... More

We stopped at the Causeway on our way to the airport. It happened to be a Monday morning which is the day most of the attractions/stores are closed and they do the cleanup from the weekend. Bad timing on our part. We just drove it, but it would be a beautiful place to relax for the day and walk along.... More

Our hotel was situated on the other side of tthe city so we experienced the causeway on the way from the airport. Drive for miles over the tropical waters and over the Bridge of the Americas.

This stretch of man made roadway is in the process of being widen to accommodate the traffic it now commands for its beauty and historical value. It joins two small islands to the mainland and was used primarily during WWII as gun positions for the protection of the Panama Canal. The gun positions are still visible and some in use... More
