Goway Invites Visitors to Celebrate Panama Canal's 100th Anniversary

Globetrotters enjoy a free Panama Canal experience to celebrate engineering wonder’s milestone.

The Latin America specialists at Goway Travel, in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Panama Canal are proud to offer a free Panama Canal experience to Globetrotters enjoying a Panama stopover on their way to or from South America.

Inspired by rumours of a kingdom rich in silver and gold, Pizzaro – who would eventually conquer the Incas – and the Conquistador Balboa were the first Europeans to lay eyes on the Pacific Ocean when they crossed the Panama isthmus in 1513. “From that day until the early 1800’s, the thought of creating a water way dissecting the continent and connecting the two oceans played on the mind of explorers, governments and investors alike,” says Don Foster, Product and Marketing Manager of Goway’s Latin America team.

The Panama Canal is the realization of that dream, and 2014 marks its 100th anniversary. Goway is offering a free Panama Canal tour to clients booking an overnight or multi-night stop in Panama. Forster describes the offer as “a way to celebrate this modern engineering feat, and let travellers experience Panama as more than just an airport en route to a South American adventure.”

Goway’s Latin America travel planner features these amazing trips to Panama, along with a wide range of travel ideas across Central and South America.
