It’s worth to take the time, (and the camera) to cross the bridge and see that impressive piece of engineering. Go slow… so you’ll enjoy the view , make sure you look left and right because both sides it’s a delight…

This bridge connects all of Latin America south of it with all of the rest of America to the north. If you take the first exit you can navigate to a saloon where a lot of locals hang out--in a neighborhood on the bay side of the bridge.

Very well built and great to see other ships go by and the level of the water go up and down. . Once in a lifetime experience. We saw this bridge from a ship wish we could have gotten off the bridge

Back when the american continent was cut in half for the construction of the Panama canal, this bridge made it possible to reunite them.

Great view from a distance, but the bridge roadway is in sad need of repairing quickly. Great views of the canal from here though and especially now with the expansion work being carried out on the canal.
