“Makes a good story.”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

How often do you get to cross continents in a car? The bridge is lovely too. Reminds me a little of the golden-gate bridge in SF.

“Pretty to look at, a little scary to cross.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The Bridge of the Americas crosses the Panama Canal in Panama City. It keeps the Panamanian Highway connected. Very pretty to look at. It is 4 lanes but feels crowded. Is being worked on nearly continuously.

“Very uneventful”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The bridge itself is very uneventful...
Not much to see here, but a little bridge.
No visitors centre or info when you arrive.

Wonderful views of the Pacific, the ships waiting to enter and the Miraflores locks. Good perspective and views of Panama City.

“Crosses the canal - OK”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I wouldn't make a special trip to cross the bridge - we happened to as part of our itinerary twice. It is part of the Pan American Highway.
