Cruisin’ the Canal
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Panama Canal, I decided to take a partial transit tour of this amazing engineering feat. I have lived here for 34 years and had never actually transited the Canal. I boarded the boat at Gamboa at 11 a.m. and arrived at the Causeway around 8 p.m. It was an amazing journey. It opened my eyes to just how difficult it must have been to create this waterway that connects the Atlantic to the Pacific, especially at the time it was built. I would like to thank Panama Great Adventures for making this trip possible. If you are coming to Panama, do not miss the chance to transit the Canal. Maria Isabel Herrera is an excellent tour organizer. Check out her website at Panama Great Adventures.
