I love this place. Panama changed a lot in just few years. Now you can do lots of Sport Activities in Balboa Ave. all day long and of course the view of the panamanian skyline is just amazing! Cheers! Ricci

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.

I discovered the walk on my way back from the Canal Museum in Old Town. Great day trip and I enjoyed creating photos all along my way. The fish market provided great seafood with many stalls selling fish from their back prep rooms which accept fish right off the dock. Can't get any fresher than that! Langestino, shrimp, lobster, clams,... More

Good selection of hotels, apartments and restaurants in the area. Close to shops. Nice views, right on the ocean. Good place to be as easy to get to everywhere in Panama from here.
