On August 15, 1914, the first ship sailed from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean through the Panama Canal. Exactly one hundred years later, this canal is one of the major shipping lanes in the world, and also for the cruise line Star Clippers.
Any time of the year is suitable to visit Panama, since the climate is no hindrance and there is always plenty to do. The climate in the city is hot and temperatures can range from 26° C to 35° C.
All of the activities, from going to the beaches, bird watching, shopping, hiking around the mountains or spending a few days with the indigenous communities, can be done throughout the year.
The New York Yankees visited Panama and played the Miami Marlins twice at Rod Carew Stadium. More than 40,000 people attended these Major League games, which also honored the superstar Mariano Rivera.
