Balboa Avenue runs along the Bay of Panama. You will find people walking, running, biking or just finding a bench to rest and relax on. There are areas along the walk with different fitness options- sit ups, pull ups, etc..There are parks for kids to play at and on a sunny day perfect views of the city and the boats waiting to get through the canal.

They talk about this avenue as it is the 5th Avenue, there is simply nothing to do, to eat or to see. And you are not careful a car will run over you! smell from the see is also really bad!

This street is used by probably everyone in Panama at some point. It is a great place to walk, drive and meet people and offers very good views of the coastline and skyline.

Many tourists and local people walk their dogs or jog or do exercise there. Good view to the sea, city and skylines.

Take a drive through Panama City and you will eventually end up at the water front on Balboa Ave. Balboa Ave runs along the Pacific coast and offer views of the ocean and the spectacular new skyline on Punta Patillia. There is a great new park along the water to relax in and enjoy the views, watch the boats, and relax. At one end is the old open air market in the older part of the city and at the other end a modern city with shopping and dining options in abundance. As the sun begins to set head across the street to Calle Uraguay for some of the most lively night life in the city.
