Want to avoid the crowds or see the ships from ground level? For a spectacular view Just follow the road down the canal, left from the central building with the museum. You will be the only one there.

The feeling of passing through the Canal in a Cruise ship is amazing, a unique experience that makes you part of history, try it if you can.

This places closes at 4. So get there by 3 to get through museum and movie and see at least one set of boats get through.

El museo es muy lindo, la película que pasan en el cine pudo estar mejor acabada. De los 4 pisos para ver barcos todos se aglomeran arriba, pero del restaurante es más lindo y solo debes comprar algo.

Parada obligada, visite una de las 3 exclusas para entender por que el canal es considerada la séptima 7 maravilla del mundo. El recorrido completo toma tiempo, vaya con calma para que aprecie todo.
