The Panama Canal
A modern feat of engineering

Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans across one of the narrowest parts of Panama, the 77km-long Panama Canal is hailed as one of the great achievements of the 20th Century. With time spent in Panama City, you can join a boat tour through the canal to marvel at the engineering genius that allows for up to 14,000 ships to pass through each day, a journey of 7-8 hours for these behemoths.
