Amador Causeway

Visit one of the best known roads in Panama, and access some of the city’s top attractions while you’re there. The Amador Causeway is a 6 kilometer stretch of road that extends out into the Pacific Ocean, and connects the capital to a handful of islands known as the Causeway Islands. The Amador Causeway was built with the rock extracted during the excavations from the Panama Canal, and now serves as a booming boardwalk and major social destination. It’s also the perfect place to see the Panama City skyline, and where you’ll come to catch ferries to Pearl Islands and Taboga Island. 

The Amador Causeway is home to many of the city’s biggest attractions. For one, you can see the Pacific entrance of the Panama Canal itself. If you’re feeling active, you can paddle board in Panama Bay, or bike the causeway, which offers bike lanes down the entire length. Not up for biking? You can rent scooters and segways right on the boardwalk, as well. While you’re there, shop local at the Centro Artesanal, and then check out some of the Panamanian restaurants that line the boardwalk. For a more educational experience, you can visit the Punta Culebra Nature Center operated by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, or go to the Biomuseo.
