Went there with local friends. Place was covered in police, and felt very secure. We went at night, and there were lots of playgrounds for the kids, which they loved. Local food vendors for snacks. The only thing we couldn't find was a bathroom (didn't really look to hard; one of the kids had a 'false' emergency). Never knew it... More

The Amador Causeway is a small strip of land going from Amador to a little island, with lots of restaurants and the city duty free shops. On one side of the strip you have a view on the numerous ships waiting to pass the Canal, on the other side is the impressive skyline of Panama City. You can walk or... More

It was very nice driving along the different Islands thru the Amador Causeway. You can also take advantage of the duty free stores and buy some perfumes, liquors or electronics devises free of taxes.

we went one afternoon with a taxi to the last island of Amador Causeway. There you have several restaurants. Quite good and very busy. You will have a splendid view on harbour , birds and fishes and of course the skyline of Panama City. Back we went walking back nearly to the beginning of the Causeway. On the Causeway you... More

I liked the security of the area...you can do jogging all the way in a breezy "bridge" which I consider the Causeway is conecting mainland to a little island, and now this becomes part of the mainland. I liked the restaurants, in particular, Las Pencas seafood. The sunsets are a new live picture every day.
