Well, it is the entrance to the canal and it certainly looks nice from a boat or looking down from a plane when you are landing in tocumen. It's nice but nothing really monumental like the golden gate or the brooklin bridge, I mean, it...More

From the bridge, there is an awesome view of the ships, other water craft, city, and landscape that you get no where else. I wish I could have spent more time on the bridge.

Bridge of the Americas connects North America to South America and vice versa. Hundreds of thousands of cars and trucks use this bridge every day for import/export of various goods/cars/food. It was built by the USA.
