This full day tour, specially built for the canal enthusiasts, is all about the canal, its history, its expansion and more. We will visit the following sights:
- Agua Clara Visitors Center, the new visitors center offers spectacular views of the new locks following the expansion of the canal, and also Lake Gatun. You will be able to see the operation of the Panama Canal and maybe post-panamax vessels transiting the locks.
- Pedro Miguel Locks
- Amador Causeway, one of the most beautiful places in Panama City. This tree-lined promenade, built from earth & rocks extracted during the canal construction, connects the mainland to four islands facing the city. With many local and international restaurants, this is a great place to have lunch with a nice view of the city skyline.
- Miraflores Visitors Center, this is where you can see up-close the operations of the canal and the transiting ships. There is also the canal museum and a short movie on the history and construction of the canal.
The scenic railway journey winds its way along the canal and through the spectacular tropical rainforest from Panama City to Colon:
