Panama City & Panama Canal
Visit the Panama Canal’s Miraflores Locks Visitors Center, where you can learn about the history and operations of this engineering marvel of the world as you watch huge cargo ships passing right in front of you. Then move on to the Amador Causeway, the breakwater for the ships transiting the Canal, built with rocks from the original excavations. From here we drive on the Coastal Belt for great views of the impressive Panama City skyline and the Pacific Ocean. We finish things up with El Casco Viejo, the historic district founded in 1673. This area of Panama City is quite unique and well worth a visit, with an unusual combination of beautifully restored buildings, low-income housing, churches, and ruins on just about every block.
