Amador Causeway – one of the most beautiful and tourist areas in Panama City
Amador Causeway (Calzada de Amador) is a street that connects a continental part of Panama with four artificial islands, derived from the construction of the Panama Canal.
The four islands that are part of Amador Causeway are: Naos, Perico, Culebra y Flamenco.
Amador Causeway was built in 1931 by the Americans. Initially this area was part of a military complex, known as Fuerte Amador. The purpose of Fuerte Amador was to protect the Panama Canal.
With the Treaties of Torrijos-Carter, the Panama Canal and Amador channel passed from the US to the Panama government that transformed Amador Causeway from a military complex into a tourist area.
Amador Causeway is, now, one of Panama City’s most popular and tourist areas. The area is full of restaurants and bars where you can eat and drink some great cokctails. You can also go biking or walking along the Amador Causeway pedestrian crossing, enjoying a stunning panoramic view of Panama City.
In the Naos and Culebra Islands, there are several scientific installations, such as: Instituto Smithsonian de Investigaciones Tropicales. Amador is also home to the Museum of Biodiversity, designed by Frank Gehry.
