Description:

Admire the impressive engineering work of the Panama Canal as you watch the 54-foot (16.5 m) tall Miraflores locks in action, shuttling cargo vessels in and out of the Pacific Ocean port of Balboa. Afterward, enjoy a shopping excursion to 2 of Central America's largest shopping malls.

Your full-day tour begins with a stop at Panama’s Miraflores locks to watch huge cargo ships navigate the Panama Canal, a 48-mile (77 km) manmade ship canal that connects the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea and the broader Atlantic. Watch as the gates of the lock open to let boats in, then close to either fill with or release water, raising or lowering the ships within to the height of the waters beyond. This incredible 1914 feat of engineering sees the passage of nearly 20,000 vessels per year.

Next, head to 2 of Central America’s largest and most popular shopping malls to hunt for bargains, use your discount voucher, and purchase any variety of items to bring back home.
