The extraordinarily scenic Amador Causeway is in Amador at the southern entrance of the Panama Canal. It stretches nearly three kilometers into the Pacific Ocean. This majestic causeway features many tourist-related venues and activities including hotels, restaurants, and exercise trails.

Rent a bike, scooter, or skates

The Amador Causeway is a beloved fitness zone for locals and visitors in Panama. Rent a bicycle to ride along the causeway. There are singular bikes available as well as options for the whole family to enjoy (up to four parties), and you can also rent scooters or inline skates.

Visit the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute

At Punta Culebra, there is a Marine Exhibition Center where visitors can observe the wonders of the tropical environment and many different species that live and thrive in Panama.

View the America’s Bridge

At the start of the Amador Causeway, go behind the TGI Fridays Restaurant to get a fascinating view of the famous Puente de Las Americas, or America’s Bridge. This is a great photo op for those looking to capture a piece of Panama for their memory book.

Take a beach break

La Playita is a bar and swimming pool at The Beach House, a small hotel between two islands—Isla Naos and Isla Perico. Revel in a day at the pool for a small fee, and if you time the tide right, enjoy the beach, too. Stick around to enjoy live music spun by a DJ when the sun goes down on weekends.
