We will visit the Amador Causeway, a road that connects three small islands on the Pacific, and was made with the excavated materials from the Canal. The Amador Causeway offers stunning views of Panama City skyline and the Pacific entrance of the Canal. Depending on the traffic, I will drive you through the Bridge of the Americas, one of the bridges over The Panama Canal. After crossing the bridge, we will visit a viewpoint, a special spot where you can take pictures of the bridge, the Pacific ports, and the ships. Then, we will stop at the Goethals Monument, a beautiful white Vermont marble structure built to honor George Washigton Goethals for his achievements during the Panama Canal construction. Behind the Goethals Monument, you will see the Panama Canal Administration Building, a landmark of the Panamanian history built in 1914. Our next stop is at the Panama Canal Miraflores Locks Visitor Center, where you may see the ships while they pass through the Canal. You will learn about its history, operation and recent expansion. You can also visit the Exhibits and the Souvenir Shop. There is also the option to watch the 45-minute 3D movie "Panama Canal, a Land Divided, a World United" narrated by Morgan Freeman at the IMAX Theater. *Please note that ship sightings in the locks are not guaranteed. It is based on the Canal schedule, but I will do my best for you to see it.
