The views are so constricted right now. A lot of construction right now because they are adding lanes to the causeway with the rubble from the Canal expansion. The Marina was neat. It will be better once the construction is done and the barriers ( as high as 8') are gone.

Causeways has always been one great place to visit while in Panama, but the construction of a new lane for cars is taking away the awe of its view. The people still go a lot to use the parks, the walking lines and the restaurants. Basically, the only thing is lost is the amazing views.

The Causeway is geared towards the tourist's. But on the weekends and evenings the locals come out and enjoy their walk and riding three wheel bikes. They are widening the road and to keep the dust down they put up a wall. Unfortunately, this wall blocks the view of the City side of the Bay of Panama.

As we visited today it was hard to tell if this was a ghost town of the past or something being built new but either way there was hardly any people around. One of the nice things about the causeway were the views of the boats in the marina and the boats lining up to enter the canal. I'm really... More

If you have nothing to do and have a set of wheels - then go. There are restaurants down there, and a duty free shop.

We walked from the Gehry Biodiversity Museum to the end of the Causeway which is Flamenco Island. Watching the ships going by to enter the Canal was fun, however the view towards the city was blocked by a temporary wall as there is construction on that side of the street. The restaurants on Flamenco Island all have nice views of... More

Take your passport to prove you are a tourist. Prices are a little less than in town Panama City, but if you have to pay for transportation, then maybe not worth it.

Because the works on Panama canal, the view on the Causeway is limited. Some of the restaurants are not operating, so there are limited and very expensive options. Much better eat at other areas.
