“A must see in Panama City”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

I was there a few weeks ago. The place is beautiful. I jogged a couple miles from one end to the next. Sunrise or sunset you can't go wrong. The statue of Balboa is beautiful at night because of lights. I recommend you visit the street and take the time to walk and enjoy the scenery.

“Balboa Avenue”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Balboa Avenue runs from the Casco Viejo area to the front of the banking center toward high rise condos, shopping mall and on to The International Airport. It runs along the Bay of Panama with a beautiful park in the center with the statue of Senor Balboa seeing the Pacific Ocean for the first time after he travel across Panama in the 1500's

“Very cool views”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is a really neat drive between the old town and the new high rise area. Nice area to walk beside the water.

“Nice waterfront park and interesting markets”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We walked from our hotel in the banking district through the seafront park to the fish and food markets one morning. It's about 4 miles and took us 2.5 hours in total. The park is lovely with nice views of the bay and the city and the markets were interesting to look round with all the local produce and fish

“Busy, crowded, but the cinta costera was nice...”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Make sure to rent a bike, skates, or walk along the cinta costera at night. Mostly locals, and lots to see and do and eat!
