Fuerte Amador (tours to Panama City), Panama cruises

The fast-growing city of Fuerte Amador lies at the Pacific end of the Panama Canal, on a peninsular jutting out from Balboa. It has a pleasing marina, with Panama City on the other side of Ancon Hill.

Fuerte Amador is for relaxation and shopping, but if you need more excitement you can easily head into Panama City to explore its atmospheric old quarter, Casco Viejo.
