The country that connects Central America to South America is most famous for the awesome feat of engineering that now allows ships to take a short cut when travelling from the Pacific into the Atlantic and vice versa. The Panama Canal has forged new shipping routes, changed the lives of the people that live here and is a must see on your trip. Its recent expansion means that it now welcomes even larger container ships that really do have to be seen to be believed. Without a doubt, the best way to experience this man-made wonder is on board a cruise ship. Cruises which include a transit of the canal will also usually stop in Panama, meaning you can experience the culture of the city and enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime cruise event. However, if you look beyond this man-made wonder, there is so much more to discover about Panama.

The vibrant capital of Panama City displays the heady mix of cultures that reside here thanks to immigrants that have taken advantage of the improved shipping routes. On the other hand, sloth-filled forests show off the beautifully wild side that the country also possesses. There are excellent surfing, diving and snorkelling opportunities in the Bocas del Toro marine park and the spectacular landscapes make it a great place for a tour on two wheels.
