Its a beautiful view on a nice day. Go by car and if you want stop at the Chinese monument on the other side of the bridge to get a few nice pics.

...I am told, it connects North to South. Worth crossing, looking at the Canal, and worth a cycle round if you have one, they’ve got a lane reserved just for you!

Nice photo op of this bridge that connects the North and South American continents. Five minutes and a few pics. Easy 5-minute ride from the city center between 10am-4pm, do not visit during rush hours!

The "Puente de las Americas" was built to connect Panama's East and West over the Panama Canal. Built in 1914 by the Army Core of Engineers. An excellent view of the Port of Balboa, Amador and passing ships.

Excellent landmark, can take pictures from amador or ocean cruise. Smooth travel during off time, but heavy traffic during peak time.

We crossed the bridge on our way to our other hotel for the second leg of the trip. It’s quite impressive even just to be on and look out onto the Pacific Ocean. There is nothing on the other side like unless you’re traveling in...More
