Spent the entire day getting from Gatun to Miraflores, but watching the ship behind you (especially a huge container ship) towering above you as you drop back to sea level is quite the experience!

This is a must see and is easy to get to by bus or taxi. Great to see the ships pass through the locks and watch what goes on.

Great way to learn about the history of the canal. Imagine it goes from the Caribbean Sea in the North to the Pacific in the South. I suggest that you read up on Panama before you actulaly go there.

Transited through here on a cruise ship, we had a guide giving us information about the building of this fascinating canal and the huge locks

You are able to watch the ships come in and go through the locks. You are very close and can go through the museum and then spend time on the outdoor decks watching the ships. Museum is well done.

Always wanted to visit the Panama Canal!! So glad that I not only got to see it, but also got to learn about the history of the canal as well as witness several ships go through. Allow yourself time to go through the museum and ask about the next scheduled ship that's going through!!

Go here. You won't be disappointed. My dad and I visited both the Gatun and Miraflores locks. They are industrial marvels and the visitors center is very nice.
