We took a Uber over to the causeway after a recommendation by the hotel for lunch.. We did not find much going on at all and most everything was closed. The restaurant we were sent to did not speak any English nor were the menus in English at all. But we did find one other where we actually could eat.... More

I visit Panamá at least once a year and everytime I come here I have to go to Amador Causeway. You can just walk and enjoy the view of all kinds of boats entering the Panamá Canal, rent a family bike for as up to 6 passengers and laugh so much trying to have everyone pedal at the same time....

Excellent outing to view ships moving to the Panama canal channel, the Bridge & the impressive Panama city skyline; have a good meal & gelato at the Marina where during the day many pelicans are flying all around. Racoons are famous here too. Only bus comes from Albrook mall bus terminal. Be prepared to wait for it, otherwise taxi/ uber.... More

Nice breeze and break from the humidity. Wound up renting a bike and wandering into a surprise festival. Lots of shaved ice stands.

The causeway takes you out to Isla Naos and Isla Flamenco where there is a marina. I won't go out there to hit the beach, the water looks nasty. Along the way you'll see the Biomuseo which is a joint effort of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, the University of Panama, and the Interoceanic Regional Authority. Big deal to most...

Causeway beautiful sighseen, unfortunately there's a lot of construction going on but still is beautiful. From here you have a wonderful view of the ocean and downtown faraway in the distance. Many visitors enjoyed the view + also watching the cargo ships and cruise ship

Several good restaurants, museum, walking trail, peddle bikes, and great views of Pacific side approach to canal. Take a taxi and walk about after visiting the museum or go to a restaurant.

Even though there are walking paths, it's not what I would call an attraction or a "must visit". It's a walkway along a highway.
