Discover A True Engineering Marvel

Did you know that the Panama Canal is the most used canal system in the world? The canal was completed in 1914 to decrease the travel time for ships between the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. It is a true marvel of engineering - attracting hundreds of thousands of tourists each year.  

One of the best ways to experience the Panama Canal is by cruising through the locks on a tourist boat - giving a unique opportunity to see the canal up close. Watch the big ships rise and fall through the locks and observe the tugboats in operation. Around 40 ships pass through the Panama Canal each day.  

Holidays to Panama start from £2,949pp. Get in touch to find out prices for your perfect trip.

The Area

There are three main places to see the Panama Canal up close - Miraflores Locks, Gatun Locks, and Pedro Miguel Locks. The latter location has a great viewing platform providing excellent views of the canal, while the Miraflores Locks Visitor Centre provides fascinating insight and a different viewing perspective. 

Best Time to Go

The best time to visit the Panama Canal is during the dry season, which lasts from December to April. Temperatures usually range from 21°C to 26°C. In July you may experience sudden afternoon rainstorms.
