Overview Of The Port Of Fuerte Amador

About Fuerte Amador
Fort Amador (or Fuerte Amador) is a former United States Army base protecting the Pacific end of the Panama Canal at Panama Bay. It was turned over to the Republic of Panama in 1999.

Panama City lies just southwest of Fuerte Amador and many visitors head here for day trips.

Located east of today's modern Panama City, Panama La Vieja (Old Panama City) is the site of the original settlement of Panama City. The city was destroyed by a devastating fire in 1671.

Casco Viejo is the home of many restored buildings that house some of Panama City's trendy hotels, bars, restaurants, art galleries, boutiques and upscale residences. It is located on a small peninsula, just west of the downtown area.

Modern Panama City is home to several major shopping malls, restaurants and many casinos.

Miraflores Visitors Centre, about a 15 minute drive from Panama City has several floors of exhibitions and interactive displays. Ships can also be viewed from an observation deck.

Hike in one of Panama City's Parks. You can walk to the top of Cerra Ancon (Ancon Hill) or enjoy Panama City's Metropolitan Natural Park.

Take a rainforest tour in the Soberania National Park.

For shopping, head to the markets at Balboa and Panama Veijo where the traditional craftwork of Mola can be bought.

Panama is not known for it's beaches however, Santa Clara & Farallón, around 2 hours drive from Panama City, are two of the better, cleaner beaches in the area. Note: swimming conditions can be treacherous due to large waves and strong riptides.

A typical Panama meal usually includes meat, coconut rice and beans accompanied by local fruits and vegetables like yucca, squash and plantains. Other local dishes include 'sancocho' (meat and vegetable stew), 'empanadas' (savoury corn or flour pastries), 'carimanola' (fried yucca roll stuffed with meat and boiled eggs) and 'tamales' (boiled pockets of corn dough, stuffed with meat and served in banana leaves).
