Avenida Balboa is very close to the commercial center of Panama city. the street is well marked. it is very easy to stroll or jog and enjoy on one side the ocean and on the other side the beautiful high rises.

Probably one of the best places to visit the combination of beach view and the city is just awesome. Visit the sea market and enjoy a ceviche...

Just went down this avenue within the last week. There are great playgrounds for the kids and several venders selling different foods or drinks. Be careful of the entrances and exits, these people are dangerous when they drive.

It is a nice causeway. We went at night and asked the taxi to take us back because the place was dead at night and no taxis or buses to take you back to the hotel. Some very food restaurants, mainly a place to walk.

Many people think Rocky movies when they hear word Balboa, but in Panama it's their currency and also name of the most famous Avenue in whole Central America. Whole Panama City is so diverse. You have beautiful Old Town(Casco Viejo), but also ghetto like areas...More
