This is a beautiful stretch of road that gives views of the city and the ocean and the jungle at once. It shows the diversity of Panama in a sweep. It is all the more interesting that this causeway is man-made from the stone removed to make the canal. That makes it the counterpoint to the canal--designed, engineered and made by human effort, connecting two natural locations. Very understated in its importance.

The Causeway is hugely changed. It's unrecognizable from what it used to be. There's shops, hire a bike, restaurants, marinas, condos, hotels, and the tropical Smithsonian, and colorful futuristic Museum of Biodiversity designed by the renowned architect F Gehry are there. The Causeway is definitely worth a visit. Take the Hop on/off bus early on a Sunday (only day w/o traffic jams!!), get off at the museum, then hop on to the end, get off, lunch at Alberto's or Leñas y Carbon, (have a gelato next to Alberto's for dessert -expensive but yummm). Both are large restaurants in front of the marina (now expanded) with a view of the city skyscrapers.

It has some nice restaurants, a museum, and nice roads to ride bike, run or walk. You have a nice view of the yatch club and its a nice place to go.

Amador is great. Dont miss it! There is almost always a breeze blowing. There are resturants where you can eat or drink. You can rent bicycles to ride. Or just walk or jog along the causeway enjoying the breeze & view.
During the middle of the day it gets really hot. Best times are morning or late afternoon.

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.
