Nice walkway along the sea front; there are many people using this for walking, biking, jogging, along here; there are many vendors selling snacks and other food items. Gets busy in evening time and weekends with families. Very safe and good place to exercise or people watch; with the backdrop of the sea on one side and the City skyline... More

Very enjoyable and safe to scroll along the water and enjoy the Panama City skyline. You'll see people jogging, biking and as you walk you'll see kids playing soccer and enjoying various other activities the park provides. You can rent a bike or enjoy a refreshing treat from the vendors. Later in the day there are more people along the... More

All the large hotels and eating establishments are on the road. We ate in one restaurant and stayed in a hotel on the street. The city closes one side on Sunday for bike riders. This is a very neat street.

An ideal place for biking or jogging.Most importantly do not forget to put sunscreen. Or an umbrella if you just decided to walk in broad daylight.

Must visit at least once, if not for jogging so at least walking around. Hundreds of people walking, jogging or just hanging out, the place is relatively safe with drinks and ice-cream vendors all over. This place is mainly for late afternoon or early evening as before it will be too hot. Gives an amazing angle to the city high... More

A great way to walk off the great food available in Panama City. Better of walk in the morning or evening due to temperature and humidity. From the "Old Town" to the modern high-rise area of downtown.

You walk along the water and the view to absolutely wonderful. It is a great view of the skyline of Panama City... More

I couldn't get ashore on this day as the shuttle,buses were not able to take a mobility scooter., but I had visited Panama City on another occasion. My husband went this time and said there was a problem with the number of shuttle buses going into Panama City. He waited for a long time in quite a crowd and could... More

Lots of beautiful buildings to be be seen along the skyline. It looked like some buildings were ready to be torn down but most were rather new.
