Avenida Balboa is a busy area but very pretty, it runs right next to the ocean and the statue of Vasco Núñez de Balboa is located here. You can stop and have a raspado. It’s a refreshing snow cone. Very popular in Panamá.

There is a lovely park along the entire water front that you can walk along.... there is plenty of parking. Childrens play parks, water fountains and the big PANAMA sign for photos - not to be missed.
