Good place to walk around if you need to walk instead of driving. Definitely a little bit smelly. Some parts are nicer than others.

If staying in Panama City go and take a hike, you won't regret it. Close to bus stops and to lines of the metro.

Avenida Balboa is a busy area but very pretty, it runs right next to the ocean and the statue of Vasco Núñez de Balboa is located here. You can stop and have a raspado. It’s a refreshing snow cone. Very popular in Panamá.

There is a lovely park along the entire water front that you can walk along.... there is plenty of parking. Childrens play parks, water fountains and the big PANAMA sign for photos - not to be missed.

Beach on one side of this reclaimed land, hotels and restaurants and bars on the other. Cyclists, skateboarders and roller bladers dream. Split 50/50 with walkers. Great way to walk to the old town or just because.

This avenue runs along the coast and it is nicely maintained for bile riders or long walks. Our walk started around 30 min from Casco Viejo. And the Panama sign is a plus.
