“It's an old bridge, what can I say”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

It is a 4 lane bridge crossing the Panama Canal. Currently undergoing maintenance and road surface replacement. A new bridge is rumoured since traffic is often backed up.

“It's a bridge !”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

What's cool is that you're driving in Panama...where lane lines mean absolutely nothing. It connects two pieces of land by going over a strip of water...it's a BRIDGE !

“Panama, Bridge of the World, Heart of the Universe”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Great view of the Panama Canal. It communicates the city center with the city of Arraijan and then you can continue riding and can arrive to beautiful beaches and cold mountain towns. Everybody should cross it at least once.
