A pretty old bridge but fun to travel over and ponder the historic nature of it. Worth the trip in a cab.

This is a great old bridge, and is fun to cross and see the canal spread out next to you. Currently it is undergoing significant maintenance and painting - hopefully it will be around for many more years.

Has an amain view of the canal from above, along with the panramic view of Calzada de Amador, wich is also amazingly cool.

At night you can see the lights of the ship that are waiting to cross the canal. Looks like millons fireflies.

It was great to see this awesome bridge from our ship (the ms Zuiderdam) as it went underneath the Bridge of the Americas when we were transiting the Panama Canal. Got great pictures!
