At the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal, a 2km palm tree-lined Calzada connects the four small islands of Naos, Culebra, Perico and Flamenco to the mainland. The Causeway is the popular place to be in the early morning and late afternoon when residents head here to walk, jog, skate, and cycle or simply escape the noise and pollution of the city.

The Causeway also offers sweeping views of the skyline and the old city, and you can see flocks of brown pelicans diving into the sea here most times of the year. Others arrive here simply to savor the pleasant breeze at one of the Causeway's many restaurants and bars.

At the Causeway entrance, Bicicletas Rali operates a booth where you can rent a bicycle for around US$3 per hour or in-line skates for around US$1 per hour.

If you don't have a vehicle, it's most convenient to take a taxi to the Causeway (around US$4 to US$6) and to hail another when you're ready to return to town - any of the restaurants or bars can call one for you.
