When you visit Panamá 🇵🇦, you should totally come for a visit. It’s an outstanding engineering construction!

We were a large group and combined the viewing of the Miraflores lock with dinner. The dinner was mediocre but the views of the ships going through the locks were great. They were quite close and we could clearly see the water levels changing and...More

Super place for a relaxed visit and to understand what makes Panama so famous - do go for the Imax movie (every half an hour) to get a better background and soak up time between crossings - suggest you go early before the crowds.

The canal at Miraflores locks is far more interesting than I expected. Also, it takes rather short for the shops to cross them. I spend an hour there (from 4.30 PM) and could se a complete cycle: two smaller ships going to the Atlantic at...More

If you come to Panama and do not visit the lock you might as well stay home. It is a marvel of this wonderful country.

A must-see for any visitor. Interesting museum, interesting film, a buffet for those arriving after 11 am (NO SHIPS between 11:30 am and 03:30 pm).

Amaze yourself with what man can do to overcome problems and make the world better. Slow and serene almost calming watching the ships pass by. You can feel the age in the buildings and surrounds. All the info you require about the canal is available...More

If you want to see the boats go through the Panama Canal you must be there before 10 AM or after 3 PM. We arrive just at 10 AM, and the last ship was just going through so we didn’t get a chance to see...More
