7th Summit of the Americas in Panama

The 7th Summit of the Americas will be held in Panama April 10 - 11 2015. The Summits are a continuing series of conferences bringing together the leaders of the Americas including North America, Central America, the Caribbean and South America. The international meetings typically go unnoticed by the general public. This year's summit however, has gained the world's attention.  The buzz is primarily over Cuba's invitation and the likely meeting between US President Barack Obama and Raúl Castro. Expect the city to be a mess from April 9 - 12. Plan your travels accordingly, as many streets / areas will be closed to the general public. A number of streets near the Atlapa Convention Center, where the summit is being held, will be closed. These streets include: Vía Israel from Calle 68 to Via Cincuentenario, which will be closed from midnight April 9 until 9 p.m. April 12.

The Corredor Norte and Corredor Sur will be partially closed April 10 and 11.

The Cinta Costera, Avenida Balboa and the Pan-American Highway from Panama Pacifico to Panama City, including the Bridge of the Americas, which will be closed from noon April 9 until 6 p.m. April 12.
