Panama Canal - past, present & future

An undeniable element of the construction of the Panama Canal, is the social impact it had in our country, translated into the thousands of West Indies citizens that relocated into Panama and made a new home here, as well as the relationships among Panama and the USA, and the effect this relationships had in several layers of our society with the ups and downs of such relationship.

The milestones of the past, set course for the new milestones achieved by the Panama Canal, and in consequence the Panamanian people, as Panama is the one responsible for how the Panama Canal operates, and how it prepares for the challenges the future may hold.

Our mission is for the time you put your trust on us to showcase Panama to you, that you have the best experience.  With that in mind, there are still things that may get on the way of the "perfect day", and such things may be as follow:

  Traffic.  Both Colón and Panamá City has a high traffic flow that can translate into traffic jams.  We will do our best to avoid "complicated" areas, but as you may understand, traffic is still something that goes beyond our control.

  Weather.  Given the way our weather behave, a light drizzle won't stop any of the walks, whereas a pouring rain may represent to cut short some of the walks if you are not prepared accordingly and as suggested with a good umbrella or raincoat.

  Ships.  Ships are not guaranteed to be seen while we are at the Miraflores Locks nor the Agua Clara Locks.  We do observe the planning for the day the Panama Canal releases daily to improve our opportunities, but it can't be guaranteed, as the logistics of the Panama Canal can be changed according to its own needs.
