Panama

Amador Causeway


The Amador Causeway is a roadway and walking path that stretches from the mainland to four small islands in the Panama Bay (Naos Island, Culebra Island, Perico Island and Flamenco Island). It was constructed from rock that was removed from the construction of the Panama Canal. The Amador Causeway overlooks the entrance to the Panama Canal, so you can watch as ships enter the Panama Canal and go under the Bridge of the Americas.

The Amador Causeway is a great place to take a bike ride or walk and see a lot of the sites including the Panama City skyline, Panama Canal, Bridge of the Americas, Balboa Yacht Club and Panama Bay. There are also a lot of bars and restaurants as well as the Marine Exhibition Center (Centro de Exhibitions Marinas) run by Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.
