The bay-front Cinta Costera is a favorite place for Panamanians and foreigners to spend their afternoons and evenings either strolling hand-in-hand along the water, watching their kids play in the many playgrounds, or jogging down the track that runs the length of this pretty place that has helped Panama City look a lot like Miami. The newest addition is the Cinta Costera 3, a new highway that takes drivers out on the water and around Casco Viejo (Casco Antiguo it’s being called now). This was the cause of much debate as many people worried it would result in the loss of Casco Angiguo’s World Heritage Site status.
It has definitely resulted in a beautiful route that helps you detour around one of the high-traffic areas of Panama. This new highway comes equipped with an attached, fenced-in pedestrian walkway, plenty of new parks, exercise equipment, basketball courts, tennis courts, and even a volleyball court near its entrance over by the Amador Causeway.
Check out this video on the Cinta Costera. I start my drive at the end of the Amador Causeway and head out onto the Cinta Costera 3 before finishing my drive on the older part of the bay-front roadway. It’s sort of a gloomy day in the video, but hey, it’s rainy season…and that’s Panama For Real.
