The Panama Canal (Spaingie: Canal de Panamá) is a 77.1-kilometre (48 mi) ship canal in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) tae the Paceefic Ocean. The canal cuts athort the Isthmus o Panama an is a key conduit for internaitional maritime trade. Thare are locks at each end tae lift ships up tae Gatun Loch, an airtifeecial loch creatit tae reduce the amoont o excavation wirk required for the canal, 26 metres (85 ft) abuin sea level. The current locks are 33.5 metres (110 ft) wide. A third, wider lane o locks is currently unner construction an is due tae open in 2016.

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.

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.
