  • Panama Transcontinental Train

    The historic Panama Canal Railway offers an unforgettable experience with spectacular views of the landscape at the heart of the Panama Canal Watershed. Recreate the experience of the California Gold Rush and enjoy the spectacular landscape at the heart of the Panama Canal Watershed from the comfort of your train cabin. The huge panoramic train windows allow you to see breathtaking views as you weave in and out of lush tropical rainforest along the Panama Canal. The Panama Canal Railway offers an unforgettable experience on the first railroad to join the two oceans. The train can be taken in the morning from Panama City or in the evening from Colon, EcoCircuitos highly recommends taking the train in the morning, as it offers incredible views of mystic morning fog lifting off the rainforest and the chance of combining this unique experience with other day tour options in the Colon Province, like the Fort San Lorenzo and the colonial town of Portobelo.
