We rode on Avenida Balboa from the airport to get to Fuerte Amador Puerto. Nothing special but scenic to pass the Pacific Ocean on one side and skyscrapers on the other side of the road.

One of the highlights of our non-touring time in Panama City was Avenida Balboa. This is an open area with sidewalks for walking and riding. We saw the Pacific, people doing yoga, and so much more. There are playfgorunds and fields for some sports. And we were able to see the almost dmoesticated raccoons of the waterfront.

We walked la Avenida on the way from dinner at Hacienda Real. Lovely view at night. We stayed at the Bay View with a fantastic view of Balboa daily!

Designated bike lane next to the pedestrian lane. Great to run, walk, or ride along the ocean. Many shady places, with benches to stop and enjoy the views.

You will likely find yourself traveling on Balboa Ave more than once while visiting Panama City. It connects many of the major sights in the city. There are numerous shops and restaurants along this stretch. Those interested in running, cycling, or just spending time outside can be found here.

It is natural, that on arriving to Panama City we went to the ocean. But, except for a small part, all the Avenida is divided from the ocean by the wall, so you do not see much
