If you’re visiting Panamá City this is certainly the best thing you can do! Come early when they open or later in the day after 2:00 to see the ships go through the locks. Bring food as options are very limited.

All the staff were welcoming and was able to explain everything in English and Spanish. Everything was very straight forward. The centre is spacious and room to sit down and relax. The prices in the shops were usual tourist prices and were not too over...More

Everyone expects you to go to Miraflores, so I went. I got there 9-9:30 am and caught a large freighter passing by. Took a few pictures. OK, great. Other than that, there isn't much to do there. I learned much more about the canal and...More

When you visit Panamá 🇵🇦, you should totally come for a visit. It’s an outstanding engineering construction!

Super place for a relaxed visit and to understand what makes Panama so famous - do go for the Imax movie (every half an hour) to get a better background and soak up time between crossings - suggest you go early before the crowds.

The canal at Miraflores locks is far more interesting than I expected. Also, it takes rather short for the shops to cross them. I spend an hour there (from 4.30 PM) and could se a complete cycle: two smaller ships going to the Atlantic at...More

If you come to Panama and do not visit the lock you might as well stay home. It is a marvel of this wonderful country.

A must-see for any visitor. Interesting museum, interesting film, a buffet for those arriving after 11 am (NO SHIPS between 11:30 am and 03:30 pm).
