Riding a boat through the Panama Canal is the ultimate experience on a visit to Panama. You can go on either a partial trip or a complete circuit, and both routes may be done in the reverse direction. The full route crosses Gatún Lake until reaching the Gatún Locks, where the ship is lowered to the level of the Atlantic Ocean.
Panama has become very popular destination with many places to visit across the country. A major draw is that Panama has beautiful, antique chapels that retain an enigmatic feel of former eras in their structures, such as the Iglesia del Carmen, located in the heart of Vía España.
