Amazing experience. I recommend reading about the construction before you go…then you can marvel. The shopping in Panama is incredible because it is a bottle neck of world commerce, so you can get items from all over the world there. The local crafts are awesome also.over 5 years ago
I loved Panama. The canal was still quite inspiring, though some people don’t think seeing the locks is all that exciting. The canal is more a series of lakes and river connected together. There is even a yacht club on the canal! They don’t tell you these things.over 6 years ago
For some reason I thought the Panama Canal was going to be some massive awe-inspiring structure. Granted it is an engineering feat, but I felt decieved.
The huge cargo ships that pass through are actually quite skinny, so the canal needn’t be very wide.
Make sure you visit at a time of day when they are letting the bigger ships through, now that is a sight to behold.over 6 years ago
