We walked a good 7km one evening along the pedestrian walkway. It is safe and we were surprised at how many locals use the seawall walkway for exercise and family evening walks! There were running groups, families, couples = just out enjoying the coolness of the evening. Fantastic views of the Panama City skyline for various points.

Great place to simply stroll and relax the mind... if you are up for a quick pedal or jog also the place to be. Make sure there are no rain clouds are in sight... not many options for shelter if it rains. Great alone, as a couple or family outing.

beautiful drive or a relaxing walk- this one can satisfy either. lots to do- shopping, eating, street side gambling, nice view, locals' hang-out place and touristy at the same time.

There's a lot today along this avenue, along with the fact that it's beautiful to drive around! There's plenty to do for just about everyone from shopaholics to gamblers to looky loo's!

Highly recommend walking down the Avenue Balboa "sea wall" area after spending a day sightseeing in Casco Veijo. A very pleasant stroll with a fabulous view of the cities modern skyline while looking back at old Casco Veijo and the fishing docks. It's a classic old meets new view, and a great photo op! Lots of activity on the walk,... More

Awesome place to relax by the bay. This is a family orientated place with beautiful views of the Panama Skyline and the bay. One small but great detail is that there are no public restrooms available....

The park along Avenida Balboa is nice. Several vendors selling drinks children playing, walking and bike path, benches playground equipment, basketball courts, etc. I enjoyed the views, the boats, the ease of crossing the large road via the crossover foot bridge. Everything about the park was really quite nice. One major fault was the lack of public bathrooms. I found... More
