WOW, WOW, WOW! What an incredible project the government has undertaking and it is still in progress. There are miles of pathway for walking, bicycling and running along the waterside with green spaces to sit, playgrounds and music stands! And, the project continues to include additional pathways that go even further than what is already quite an accomplishment. Panama truly... More

Skate, eat, drink, play, walk, run, and enjoy this premium space kept for residents and visitors alike on the waters edge. It is surrounded by pollution this is the problem, corners of these areas smell and are a health hazard. Walking in the middle and round to the Old city and port is better. Safe and popular, but when night... More

A drive along the Avenida Balboa is an exercise in patience. the streets are alway full of cars winding in and out of traffic but it is worth the traffic to see the views the exists of the modern Panama and it magnificent buildings along the ocean side

Strolling along the Avenida Balboa, or Cinta Costera as many call it, was a great experience. One can find entertainment, restaurants, people exercising or just couple walking while holding hands. The breeze and the view made me think of Lakeshore in Chicago. It was such a rewarding experience to walk away from the noise of the city.

The "Cinta Costera" runs parallel to Ave. Balboa. The city invested in a green space that was truly needed and it turned out exceptional. Great for tourists, the views of the city memorable and interactions with locals and other tourists make for a good vibe. Bring your camera or a cell with a decent lens (iPhone, Galaxy, Hauwei)... Walk the... More

Balboa has one of the best places to stretch your feet with an extraordinary view. Keep in mind that while there is an advantage for exercising at sea level, humidity is truly a challenge. Dont be over distracted by high rise buildings; the best is the Old Town...

I have run in many of the great cities in the world including DC, NY, Delhi, Mumbai, Rome, Athens, Istanbul and Tokyo and Avenida Balbao would rank as one of the best place to run comparable with the other cities I have run. There is 4 kms running track and it is fairly busy even in mornings. I ran there... More

I like walking on Avenida Balboa. Well designed with a path walk that takes you from the city to the old Casco Viejo. A flair of a busy city with some relax touch. You can see people playing basketball on the courts, students relaxing on bench, olders walking; Avenido Balboa is a must go in Panama City
