The Canal connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans through its 81 km from Panama City to Cristobal in Colon district. The cruises that pass through the Canal are an interesting travel opportunity both for the culture and for the thrill of crossing a continent which, before 1914, could only be circumnavigated. The cruise here is a wonderful discovery of Caribbean landscapes and interesting shore excursions. You will be fascinated by the system of hydraulic locks that allow ships to descend by as much as 28 metres in height difference between the Atlantic and Pacific coast. We talk about Panama as the "Bridge of the World"; let's cross it together.
Not to be missed:
• Miraflores Locks
• Panama "La Vieja"
• The colonial quarter of Casco Viejo
