Bridge of the Americas, Panama City

3.5
#6 of 31 in Sightseeing in Panama City
Bridge Tourist Spot
Drive across Bridge of the Americas, which spans the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal. Built by the United States in 1962, the bridge remains an important part of the Pan-American Highway, though it's no longer the only road crossing on the canal. The bridge serves only vehicles, so you cannot cross it on foot. If you don't wish to drive across the structure, see it from the land or from a boat or cruise ship. Our Panama City itinerary builder makes visiting Bridge of the Americas and other Panama City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • For two weeks I spent every day, but it's worth the trip even if you're not staying. When visiting the Causeway, an Amateur passed over the bridge, you don't even have to stop. Just check the schedule to not get stuck in traffic

  • The ride over this beautiful modern bridge is breathtaking. The view before you is Panama City, the view sideways overlooks the boats waiting to go through the Canal.  more »
  • Nice view and if you are in technical things like me a must see, though not everybody will probably feel this way when they look at "yet another bridge".  more »
