Tour Overview

Discover three cities that tell the story of important events in Panama's history over three centuries.

First, travel back in time to the 16th century by visiting Portobelo and learning about its wealth, historical significance, and strategic geographical location by visiting its museums, churches, and forts.

Then you'll go to the Panama Canal's new locks (Aguas Claras), a 21st-century masterpiece where you'll see mega-ships with capacities of over 15,000 containers transit from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

Finally, you'll ride a 150-year-old train on a railroad funded and built by the United States of America. The construction, which dates from the nineteenth century, was the region's first transcontinental railroad. The train travels from Colon to Panama City and offers an unforgettable view of the Canal's landscapes, lakes, rivers, flora, and fauna.
