We took the tour to see the new locks and found it very interesting. We got to watch the full locking process of a huge LNG carrier. Afterward we went to the Frank Ghery Biomuseum which was well worth the stop.

Great port. Did a Hop on/off bus tour which was good for the value $20 to stay on bus, $25 to hop off. Downtown very congested and not worth seeing except for the other areas.

Too much time being driven around the abandoned US bases and not enough time at the New Locks which is the purpose of the tour.

Honestly it was such a short visit, it was a blur. The only memory is the stifling hot transfer boat. The operators should open all the windows below deck especially when the temp is in the upper 80s.

We did our own thing here, taking a taxi from the cruise ship tender dock to the Casco Viejo, the old colonial town. It has undergone significant amounts of renovation & re-building, but there is more to do. We really enjoyed ourselves, walking along the old sea wall, photographing the restored buildings, dropping into cafes & bars when it got too hot. It was easy to get a taxi back to the ship.

We took a taxi to Metropolitan Park. We enjoyed a stroll through this large "city" park. We were able to see a fair number of birds, but no sloths.

Long bus ride, but takes you to East side of the canal. Got to see the Gatun Locks and several ships going through. Get to see a lot of county, but the locks were truly amazing.

Colonial Panama City is absolutely lovely. It was a bit hot and humid for our walking tour, but we survived. The tour of the Miraflores locks was outstanding.
