If you come to Panama you have to go and see the Panama Canal.

In reality it is just a much scaled up version of the canals and locks we have at home, but it is impressive to see a super tanker go through.

It takes ships between 10 and 24 hours to transition through the canal at a cost of between $100,000 and $500,000 depending on the size of ship and the type of cargo.

The visitor center has a museum, 3d theater and viewing platforms of the locks
