We were brought here to check-in with the Canal and Bay tours for the partial tour. The view of the city and water is beautiful. They have 4 person bike rentals and good souvenir shops including a duty-free shop. Not the best deals on duty-free here vs the USA. it should be about a $20 cab ride round-trip.

You will get great views of the Panama City skyline and the ships lining up to pass through the Panama Canal. There are many shops and restaurants and a biking and walking path.

We rented a bike ($10 hour) and ride down the causeway. For Americans missing home, there is a Bennigans on the causeway and great duty free shopping at the end. It's good exercise

So the Amador Causeway was created as a breakwater for the Panama Canal using the rocks excavated from the Canal. It is less than 4 miles long and connects four islands, Naos Island, Culebra Island, Perico Island and Flamenco Island. During World War II the islands were utilized by the US military as a post to protect against an attack on the Canal. In 1999 along with the Panama Canal the islands were turned over to the Republic of Panama as part of the Torrijos-Carter Treaty. Today the islands are a tourist attraction filled with restaurants, a couple of museums (under construction), rentals for pedi-bikes, scooters, tri-cycles, rollerblades and ferries to take you to Pearl Island and Taboga Island.
During our 1 month stay in Panama, we visited the Causeway twice. The first time we rented a pedi-bike, the second a scooter. The scooter was more fun and an hour rental was plenty to see it all.
The Causeway offers great views of Panama's skyline and perfect picture opportunities. The first time we ate at the Balboa Yacht Club (need a taxi to get there) and the second time at Mi Ranchito which is right on the Causeway and is an open air restaurant. I highly recommend their house special which is a seafood rice mix...muy delicioso!
