Panama City Tourist Bus route & stops

Experience the best of Panama's capital on the Panama City Tourist Bus. The comprehensive sightseeing route circles the most important monuments and landmarks around the city, making twelve different stops along the way where you can hop off and on to immerse yourself in its vibrant atmosphere. Throughout the tour, you'll also enjoy recorded commentary in English about the fascinating places you pass.

The Panama City Sightseeing Bus will take you to diverse areas of the city: explore the beautiful Colonial-style Old Quarter, a recognised World Heritage Site; admire the capital's most contemporary high-end districts, and drive alongside the bay for magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean.

Marvel at the incredible feat of engineering that is the Panama Canal on a visit to the Miraflores Locks, and appreciate the modern architecture of the Biomuseo, designed by celebrated architect Frank Gehry, and its fascinating exhibitions dedicated to Panama's natural and cultural history. If you'd prefer a spot of retail therapy, don't miss stopping at Balboa Boutiques Plaza or Albrook Mall, two shopping centres where you'll find luxury brands at incredible prices. And if you're craving an escape into nature, hop off for a walk up to Cerro Ancon, the highest point in the city, from which you'll enjoy incomparable views from the historic centre to the canal. Unmissable!
