Panama is a cute country, it really is. The people are nice, the city is small but warm - as the weather (all year round). But if you've been to NY or to San Francisco... this barely qualifies as a bridge...

This is the point of the inter-continental divide, but there is no bump to feel either by ship transiting the Panama Canal uner the bridge, or in a vehicle going over the bridge itself. The road is a vital link between the continents of North...More

When crossing this bridge you can feel the years of history and even peek at the canal. This takes you to nice beaches as well

I drove accross this bridge 1,000's of times but seeing it and going accross after 50 years was a thrill. Most things in Panama are new, but I caught this experience before they renew it too.

Myself and a friend drove over this road bridge over the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal during a private tour. We stopped at the viewing area on the opposite side to take photos. Well worth a close visit.
