Panama Canal

iStock-1194830504-1Whilst in Panama, one trip you have to take is to visit the world-famous Panama Canal. The Miraflores Locks gives a great view of the ships passing through the canal. The first idea of the canal dates back to 1513, when the potential was first recognised. For centuries the early European colonists put many proposals forward as to how this idea could become a reality. It wasn’t until the late 19th century when technology had advanced that the project first got underway. From the Miraflores Locks you can observe the operation of the Panama Canal, one of the most spectacular engineering works ever carried out. Tours start at $118 USD per person and includes transfers from your hotel, a tour guide and tickets to the Miraflores Center.
