Touristic Attractions of Panama City

CINTA COSTERA 

The Coastal Strip of Panama City is a place to enjoy green areas without leaving the metropolis. The strip covers over 35 hectares, 16 of which are completely devoted to green spaces.

Bordering the Bay of Panama, the strip links modern Punta Paitilla to the Old Town District. As you walk along, the road takes you from skyscrapers on one end to colonial-era constructions on the other.


THE OLD TOWN

Casco Viejo (Spanish for Old Quarter), also known as Casco Antiguo or San Felipe, is the historic district of Panama City. Completed and settled in 1673, it was built following the near-total destruction of the original Panamá city, Panamá Viejo in 1671, when the latter was attacked by pirates. It was designated a World Heritage Site in 1997

CALZADA DE AMADOR "CAUSEWAY"

The Amador Causeway is a road that connects the mainland of Panama City with four islands in the Pacific Ocean that form a small archipelago. These islands are Naos, Perico, Culebra, and Flamenco. The road begins in an area near the southern entrance of the Panama Canal, near the township of Ancon.

MUSEO DE LA BIODIVERSIDAD

The Museum of Biodiversity, or Biomuseum, designed by renowned Architect Frank Gehry, will explain the emergence of the Isthmus of Panama from the depths of the oceans. Its formation linked North and South America and allowed the passage of species from one continent to the other. Seven interactive halls in the museum will explain Panama's role as a "Bridge of Life" in not only providing a pathway for species to migrate north and southwards, but also in separating the Pacific Ocean from the Atlantic and thus altering the marine currents in a way that changed the climate and gave rise to human development.
