  Pancanal`s Bridge of the Americas pic
by quime

Its name comes from the reason that it was the only point that holded the north and south of the American continent since 1962...until 2004 when a brand new bridge was inaugurated.
It has a beautifull three colored ilumination at night.
On the western side of the bridge, just after joining the highway, there is a rest stop / look out station situated on the right side. One can get reasonably good photographs from here.
A taxi ride from panama city should cost 3 USD one way, but you will need the taxi back to the city. deal with the driver.
