Experience Boat Tours in Panama City

Things to do: Panama City is a modern destination with a colonial district and of course, the canal. Make sure you see the canal, then head out to explore the rest of the city and its surroundings. Old Panama is well worth exploring, and the Metropolitan Natural Park has leafy trails and animals to discover. Another museum worth considering is the Biomuseo, a Frank Gehry-designed biodiversity museum. The Cinta Costera is on reclaimed land on the coastline, and the islands like Calzada de Amador, which are found near the canal are worth exploring too.

Miraflores Visitor’s Centre: The canal really is the main attraction in Panama, and one place, in particular, you have to go to is Miraflores Visitor’s Centre. Miraflores is the name of one of the three locks you can observe here. The observation deck is a fantastic place to sit and take it all in.

Best time to go: This is a tropical country, so you can expect rain at times. To avoid the majority of the rain, January to the middle of April is the driest part of the year.
