Bridge of the Americas, Panama City

3.6
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.

  • It is very exciting to pass on the bridge that connects the two Americas. This bridge has nothing special both from an engineering point of view and from an aesthetic point of view itself.

  • It was the first bridge that unites the Americas, in this place before the bridge the crossing was made by ferry, what the cars enter; Then came the one that sits at the entrance of the canal by the Pacific Ocean, the ships pass underneath, after crossing by car soon in the inland sense descent there is a parking lot where you can enjoy the passage of the ships... Be sure to visit and pass through it, now there are 3 of them on the channel being this and the CENTENARY that are close to the city.
