Panama City, Panama

Cinta Costera Waterfront Path

Panama City’s signature running option, the Ciclovia Cinta Costera is one of the finest waterfront running routes in Latin America. Introduced in 2009 and continually expanding, this paved path is in great condition, and stretches more than 8 km between Estadio Maracana in the south and Democracy Plaza in the north. Along the way, there are loads of photo ops, including views both the Gulf of Panama, and the city’s skyline. There are also plenty of strength training stations, sports fields, and spaces for group fitness classes to keep your workout varied and interesting. The trail is especially popular on Sundays for Panama’s public “Ciclovia” event. Hop on at any section for an out and back of up to 16 km, or see our Casco Viejo Loop for a tour including the newest section, Cinta III. Keep in mind the Cinta Costera is very exposed, so wear sunscreen and run early to beat the heat.
