Rent a bike and fit right in

This is a vibrant part of local life. You can find people biking, skating or just jogging all along the length of the avenue by the sea.

Just across the street from the Hilton Panama, Avenida Balboa is abutted by many beautifully landscaped pedestrian areas. The gardens, jogging paths and bayfront parks are well maintained, well patrolled and easy to enjoy.

Fantastic in the city park and high use roadway. The US should take notice of this design aesthetic and implement it around the country.

Pretty to walk down vs a cab but there is not a lot "to do" or see. It comes alive after sunset with locals.

We enjoyed walking along the water and watching all the families out enjoying an evening stroll. It was particularly festive on Sunday evening with food, bike rentals, and some entertainment. Nice way to experience Panama City.

The walking park along coast is called Cinta Costera. The road driven along side it is Avenida Balboa. Whatever you call it this is a beautiful area well worth your visit.

We were told this avenue is man made and what a beauty it is. Take time to really enjoy its beauty and the view of the sky scrapers from there.

A very pleasant walk with beautiful view of the skyline and Panama Bay. About 3 kilometers end to end. Well kept parks and recreational areas along the way. Walk for pleasure or exercise. Take water.

We walked this from our hotel to the old town and glad we did. The skyline is one of the best I've seen and the Avenue is a good walk. It is well kept and interesting to see all the people, particularly the activities at weekends.
