Travel Itinerary

Day 1

Meet and greet at the International Airport in Panama and transfer to your hotel.

Day 2

Half day tour of Panama and The Canal from land. You will start your day with a visit to the ruins of Panama’s first capital, known as Old Panama or Panama La Vieja. This city was founded in 1519 as the first Spanish settlement on the Pacific Ocean. Spanish expeditions to conquer other South American colonies left from here and returned with vast quantities of gold, attracting the attention of pirates like Henry Morgan. When this notorious pirate looted the city in 1671, the whole city was destroyed by fire, but the ruins of several impressive structures remain to this day. You will see the ruins of the Spanish fortress, the cathedral and the Bishop’s House, as well as a museum detailing what life was like in Old Panama. Next, you will travel to Casco Antiguo, the Colonial City, which is the historic center of the modern capital. Here you will do a walking tour which includes a visit to the Church of San Jose. Within this small, plain church resides the stunning Golden Altar (the Altar de Oro), carved of wood and covered with gold flake. The altar originally resided in Old Panama, and while Henry Morgan’s gang was looting the city, priests painted the altar black to hide the gold from the greedy pirates. The pirates left the altar alone, and later the priests moved it to its present location. You will next head through the former “Canal Zone” to see the Miraflores Locks visitor center. This includes the entrance to the Museum, a movie on the new canal, and access to the viewing locations. From the observation deck, you can watch as ships cross the Panama Canal, and the fascinating process as they pass through the lock. This tour is quoted in private with an English speaking guide, and bottled water is furnished.

Day 3

Following breakfast at the hotel, you will be transferred to the pier for a partial Canal transit. You will board a vessel that will take you through Miraflores Locks, Pedro Miguel Locks, and Gaillard Cut. You will disembark at Gamboa Pier and be transferred by bus back to Flamenco Pier. Here you will meet your representative for transportation back to the hotel. Tour includes lunch and an English speaking guide. Transit may be in reverse order. Full transit available on request. Not available all days - ask for dates.
