More from Panama

Since I posted about Panama's Bridge of Americas below I decided to do another Panama bridge. I am linking up with Scenic Sunday and Sunday Bridges

The Centennial Bridge in Panama was built and finished in 2004 to ease the overcrowded Bridge of the Americas. It is the second road crossing the Panama Canal.  The bridge is a cable-stayed design and is a total span of 3,451 ft. The main span clears the canal by 262 ft. allowing large vessels to pass below.  The bridge was also built to withstand earthquakes which are often felt in this area.






These ship look huge from a distance and even larger when you are right next to them.

One of the Panama hotels we stayed at is the Radisson Rainforest hotel.

 The hotel had two pools, we were so busy sightseeing we did not have a chance to even swim.

The view from the rainforest hotel. There is also a golf course at this Radisson Rainforest resort.


The Radisson's lobby and bar. It was a beautiful hotel, I wish we could have stayed longer.

To see more beautiful and scenic photos,  please visit Scenic Sunday  and Sunday Bridges.

Thanks to both of the hosts, the Holleys of Scenic Sunday and Louis the host of Sunday Bridges. Thanks also for visiting my post and blog. I hope everyone has a Happy weekend.

  5. wonderful architectural bridge structure and a lovely, perfect resort you stayed. It is a juggling act isn't it trying to make the most of the venue but also packing in the exploration away from there as well. Nice to come back home to at end of day though!
