The Cinta Costera, a bit like a boardwalk, is a new attraction that was just completed by the Government in 2009. It is a long walkway that curves along the Pacific Coast, hugging Avenida Balboa as it connects the new part of the city to the Casco Viejo. The Cinta is paved and has pavilions every couple of hundred metres, which are extremely convenient, given the way it rains in Panama. Joggers and cyclists are quite fond of the Cinta, not least because frequent police patrols mean that it is a safe location to enjoy oneself. A walk along the Cinta will require about an hour to get from one end to the other, and along the way there are plenty of great opportunities to take pictures of both the old and the new in Panamá City.

Address: Avenida Balboa
Directions: Along the stretch from the new to the old city
