Time of year
We biked and walked along the water and it was great. There were spectacular views of the old and new cities, the water and the CBD. And of course, the Panama sign!
Walk along the water. Lots of vendors. Lots of places to sit and relax, and people watch. Great opportunity to take photos. Very unpleasant smell it low tide
Now home to the famous PANAMA sign! With less impressive views than at its former site on the Amador Causeway, but still. A great place for a stroll in the Panama CBD, surrounded by highrises, parks and the waterfront.
Admittedly it is just a road with a great view of the old and the new. It can get very busy especially when the Uber drivers slow or stop so there passengers can take photos
Better in the afternoon or evening when its cooler. Stop by the fish market at the end for lunch or dinner. Plenty of vendors along the way but they don't harrass you. Several good photo ops. See the big Panama sign. Good places for kids to play too
