Great view of Panama City!

I imagine this is more of a treat for the locals than anything else as it's a great place to walk, jog and bike. The views of Panama City from here are excellent. There are... read more

Went there on a sunday morning by cab, there was no activity at all! We could not even see the city skyline! As it was boarded up along one side of the road. So it was a long walk back to the nearest bus stop, complete waste of the morning

the Amador Causeway is a great area to stay because it has beautiful views of the downtown, and your are surrounded by water. The canal is on one side, and the sea is on the other. Good restaurants, the fabulous Bio Museo, (which can take more than one day to see) and walking along the canal is very picturesque. Loved... More

I imagine this is more of a treat for the locals than anything else as it's a great place to walk, jog and bike. The views of Panama City from here are excellent. There are restaurants and shops at the end of the causeway on the islands but the view is obstructed by a marina.

Excellent views of the Panama City skyline. You can get bright sunshine, and in less than ten minutes, a rain squall. Mud flats near the road as well as water or rocks. Just a mix of things.

The Amador Causeway was built by the United States during the construction of the Panama Canal. Rocks and dirt excavated from the massive construction project were used to create the causeway, which is a roadway linking 3 islands just off the shores of Panama City. During World War 2, large gun emplacements were built by the US military to protect... More

Many restaurant selections. Great duty free area and a place we're the red bus line stops and pucks up people. Bought my Panama Hat here. Wonderful shops and place you can rent a bike or travel buggy for family and or adults several miles of concrete path. But much is out in the open sun. Very hot. Especially after 12... More

the way out there was very dirty with a big nasty wall. there was no one there at all but the weather was very overcast as well. the views were great but lacking the sun. all the restaurants were empty but we were at time constraints. i would love to come back and spend a afternoon around the area.
