Things to do in Panama City
If in Panama City don’t miss a visit to the Panama Canal, the country’s most famous creation. A man-made marvel key to both the country’s economic growth and tourism, the Panama Canal is widely considered one of mankind’s greatest engineering constructions. A decade-long project, the Panama Canal cuts through the country’s isthmus and through the Caribbean Sea so both cruise and cargo ships can enjoy a significantly shorter journey as they travel from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic. The Canal today generates a significant percentage of the country’s income from toll revenues and has also become a key tourist attraction in the region.
Head over to the Miraflores Lock Museum in Panama City to watch ships get processed through a complicated series of locks, some of which involve lifting whole ships into a man-made lake.
