  • Balboa Avenue has a beautiful view of both day and night. It is very spacious and ideal for walking or exercising. You can take very good pictures there, is a safe and quiet place. If you visit Panama, anyway you must pass through the Balboa Avenue, recommended in its entirety!

  • Well designed, extent of its green areas, many seats to enjoy the tranquility and the chirping of many birds that nest in its leafy trees, Park and areas for walkers, zero waste. Around the towering skyscrapers and a calm sea.

  • Avenue and beautiful but the traffic and maddening! Don't nominate anyone rent car, move of UBER or TAXI. Transit and confused, no respect for pedestrians ... notice that almost all cars are beaten and this avenue the flow is intense!!!
