Historic Panama Stopover

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 517

This city is a delightful combination of the historic and the ultra modern. Explore the centre of Panama City with restored colonial houses, interesting museums, cathedrals and plazas.


More than the canal, Panama City makes an ideal stopover on your way to South America, or a great 3 day visit on its own. Enjoy a full day sight-seeing Panama both colonial and new, including the cathedral tower, the Old Panama Museum and the historic Casco Viejo district. Of course, a visit to the Panama Canal Museum is a must, followed by a stop at the Miraflores locks, to see ships using the famous waterway.

Full Day City Tour with Panama Canal

Morning tour where you will visit the ruins of Old Panama, climb up the Cathedral tower, visit the Old Panama Museum and then continue to Casco Viejo (the old city compound), which dates from the late 1600's.

Afterwards, visit the Panama Canal Museum. Continues with a visit to the Miraflores Locks at the Panama Canal where large ships can be seen transiting the canal. Enjoy a presentation by the Panama Canal Authority on the history of the Panama Canal and marvel at the workings of this feat of human engineering. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant. The tour then continues to the Panama Canal area, including the town of Balboa, formerly part of the Panama Canal Zone. You will stop at the folk art market at the old YMCA building.
