The Causeway is just a few miles from the city, but feels so different. It's quite lovely, and there are many shops and restaurants, along with nice views back to downtown. You can rent a bike to ride along the long narrow causeway, or visit the Punta Culebra Nature Center or Biomuseo.

This is not a pleasant walk on a hot Panamanian afternoon. The only solace was the wine shop at the end of the road with cold sodas. We had to take shelter in the shopping arcade because it was so hot. Go early morning and avoid the hours of 11am-3pm.

We visited the Amador Causeway (Calzada de Amador) several times during our extended stay in, and return trip to, Panama City. It is about five or six Kilometers or so depending on where you start. We always had a car but bicycle rentals are available. On the way in is the BioMuseo. There are a number of shops from craft... More

Sit overlooking the marina, enjoy a pizza at Alberto's made with ingredients you pick (I strongly suggest white pizza with shrimp, garlic and basil... Incredible). Great little shops for souvenirs (don't pay the first price you see... There are many opportunities to buy things), bicycle rentals, and more!

It's 6km from end to end, so unless you rent a bike it is a very long walk and can be a nightmare snarl of traffic. We went on a Sunday afternoon, missed all the traffic and had a lovely time. You can catch the Hop on, Hop off bus at the big hotel at the end of the Causeway... More

We visited in Dec 2014, construction work had the view of the city mostly obstructed. Many of the kiosks were closed. The end of the causeway has a nice marina and shopping center. The duty free shop was very crowded when we were there. Mostly "American" stuff I can get here in states.

This is where you want to go if you're looking for nightlife. There are literally dozens of clubs and restaurants to choose from and it is very picturesque.

Went on Friday late morning. A few people were biking along the causeway but no view as there is fencing up and it blocks the view along one side. Most people were at the duty free or the restaurants nearby. You can get to the end of the causeway by Metro bus for $.25 from Albrook bus station. The bus... More
