Great point of reference, especially when you are driving in the crazy traffic of Panama. This is one of the most important avenues in the city.

This park is so nice and beautiful. It is close to the Fish Market which is a fun little stop too. Great family stop with the playgrounds. Beautiful picture taking spot.

Be sure you get a good driver to show you through. Great place to visit and really puts you to consider city life if one could afford it.

Perhaps one of the greatest overhauls Panama city has had over the years has been the transformation of the former Balboa Avenue to the three (3) phases of the new Coastal Strip (Cinta Costera).
