At the recommendation of one of our hotel wait staff, we visited the Amador Causeway on Sunday where the local ritual consisted of biking, walking/strolling, and the general being outdoors to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The Causeway offers great views of the metropolis across Panama Bay and seeing it on a bike was truly enjoyable. We initially wanted to rent a bike at the north end of the Causeway but our Uber driver recommended we go to the one that was near the Taboga Ferry area, so we rented one from Burke Bikes instead (make sure you bring an ID of sorts, driver's license worked for us since we didn't know we needed a passport so that was lucky!). Bike rentals there were normal, I guess - we did a 3-passenger tandem side-by-side bike for $10/hour plus $2 for tax (or something else). If you did the usual mountain bike, it was $4/hour. Biking from that spot to Isla Flamenco took all of 20 minutes and then we rode back up towards BioMuseo for the rest of it before having to bring the bike back to the shop. You can do all of this in an hour if you rode like a maniac, which we did (we also raced a cargo ship that was leaving the canal :)) After we returned the bike, we walked back to Isla Flamenco since we were told that on Sundays you can catch a few exotic cars and eat at Alberto's with the Panama Yacht as your view. We saw a couple of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and a McLaren, so the husband was pleased.

Overall, a very nice way to spend your Sunday here - we got lucky with the weather and a good way to enjoy the outdoors for several hours.

Wow! The changes made to the causeway are marvelous. To see a museum in the area. The amount of restaurants. The food and service at 'Mi Ranchito' was superb. Many lovely scenic photographs also. A must visit again.

We rode this causeway on bike. Beautiful way to get pictures of the city skyline. Great restaurants and gift shops along the way. I highly recommend this route. If you're not going to bike it then take a bus or a cab out so you can stroll and see the bay, the city and all the ships lined up waiting to go thru the canal

What a beautiful place to visit and ride, either by car of bicycle. This place is now a 4 lane road with many attractions, the ships waiting to enter the canal, many restaurants, benches to sit and admire Panama City skyline etc. At the end of this causeway there many top flight restaurants and harbor with beautiful boats. This place is always refreshing because of the ocean breezes....a great place to go in the evenings as well. The area is well patrolled by tourism police and very safe at all hours.

When traveling to panama city and not visiting the Causeway is like not going to the Canal. It is a must too. You need to walk this way and enjoy being walking on a street in the middle of the pacific with nice views of small islands, water, good ambience of bars and good food too.
