This stop was included in our one-day city tour and was a must-see. Yes, it was undergoing road construction, but the views of the city from out there were great. Its a peaceful place with small boats bobbing at moorings. We also visited the Smithsonian Park there (fee). As we did not schedule a jungle visit it was nice to... More

This section is nice and going to be a boom area with work in progress. Potential is awesome and opportunities abound. A visit here or condo purchase just the ticket.

The Biosphere at the start of the causeway is spectacular, but stop there. Road construction, large "turista" restaurants and a good view. Nothing else.

Great place to view the vibrant urban skyline of Panama City. Urban growth has exploded in recent years and walking, cycling or driving the causeway can give you a perspective of how dense Panama City has become

The causeway is a nice spot to get a bite to eat(many restaurants along the way) go for a bike ride by the sea overlooking modern Panama city and get in some duty free shopping.

The Causeway was a super place to drive to, great views, great restaurants, could go to the marina, but we were there this week-end and it is down to one lane, bicycles on the road instead of using the walkways, the businesses looked closed, it was basically a mess. The Panama tourist sign is right in in curve making it... More

Everything is under construction. You have to park very far and then walk along the Causeway. I'm sure once they are done it is going to be very pretty and a nice place to visit.

It was very windy, but an easy ride out to restaurants and some shops. The causeway is under heavy construction and they are adding shops on the islands. It is worth a few hours to look at the boats in the marinas and have lunch.
