Beautiful Views Of The Largest Waterfront In Panama
Panama’s largest waterfront better known as the Cinta Costera located in the heart of the City. The strip covers over 35 hectares and are split into 3 main areas, Cinta Costera 1, 2 and 3. Lots of people especially the Panamanians flock this area on a daily basis for different reasons. Some go to relax on the side benches and enjoy the scenery of skyscrapers overlooking the city while others take long walks or engage in some form of physical activity. Large numbers of people, both old and young gather here almost as though its a ritual.
What To Do Here:
You can take a stroll along the broad walk, go biking, running or roller skating and if you don’t own a bicycle or roller skate you can rent one for about $5 an hour. Besides sporting activities you can enjoy a meal at the “Mercado de Mariscos” (Fish Market). The Mercado de Mariscos is located towards the end of the Cinta Costera where old Panama City starts and is a place where dozens of local seafood restaurants are centrally located. Mercado de Mariscos is not a typical brick and mortar restaurant but rather, it is made up of plastic tents and chairs. However, this is a common site or tradition of the Panamanians. Locals eat here and the food is very reasonably priced. Nearby there is fish market where fresh catches are sold to the general public so if you are a seafood lover you can purchase some fresh fish.
Amador Causeway is another place to see if you are visiting Panama for a short period and it is very similar to the Cinta Costera. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and let me know if you have ever visited Panama.
