Lovely views!

We took a ton of photos from this area. Great place to eat, too. Must try the Ceviche, everywhere we ate, it was delicious.

Such a great view. Beautiful sweeping views of the ocean. Traffic is not too bad and there is parking if you would like to walk. Worth seeing.

Although some construction was going on, this peninsula offers a great view of ocean going ships passing or anchored nearby. At the end you find the marina and some restaurants.

This is really a walkway for Sundays, where you can rent a bike, get something to eat, take a stroll. Take the bus at Allbrook bus station that reads 'AMADOR'. 30 min, 35 cents ride. Splendid view of the city skyline.

Amador is currently undergoing a well needed upgrade. There is not much to do or see and a lot of the bars and restaurants have seen their day. The new biodiversity museum will likely see an increase in tourists and hopefully the upgrades will see improvements all round.

The Amador Causeway is a nice place for sightseeing .you can rent bikes along the causeway or walk at your own pace.There are restaurants and shopping on the way but it is still not finished and under construction.Very nice view of the bay.Bio museo very closed. From the Causeway you can see the bridge of the Americas

The islands linked by the Amador Causeway house several interesting exhibits. The Biodiversity Museum, the Smithsonian Research Center, several good restaurants, and great views back to the Panama City skyline. The road is under construction, however, and there can be traffic. Use extreme caution crossing into areas under construction. When renovation is completed, the causeway will be an even greater... More

This is a great place to sit and relax and there are also great restaurants. You can also take advantage of the shops or bike if you are feeling energetic.
