Your local guide will meet you for your scheduled arrival at Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport, allowing for some time to pick up luggage & exchange money, if necessary – you will be able to store your luggage in the car that you will be travelling in for the day, so there is no need to worry about your bags.

Heading into the city for approximately 45 minutes, you will head straight to the most popular destination in the city, the Panama Canal. At the Miraflores Locks Visitor Center, you will enjoy views of the famous Panama Canal, visit the museum, step onto the viewing platforms, and learn more about the canal.

Afterwards, your guide will lead you to the historic neighborhood of Balboa and around Cerro Ancón. Here, you will be able to take in some great views of the city and – depending on timing and preference – you can also visit the Museum of Modern Art or the tourist village of “Mi Pueblito”.

Next, you will pass over the Bridge of the Americas for final views of the canal before heading across the Amador Causeway.
