Description
You will be picked up at your hotel for a half day tour to Colon.

Your 1-hour Panama Canal Railway train journey will begin in Balboa on the Pacific coast, running northwest toward Cristobal on the Atlantic side.
The train hugs the canal for most of the journey and even crosses sections of the Gatun Lake, by way of small islands and trestle bridges and you will enjoy fantastic views of the busy Panama Canal.
Continuing towards Cristobal, you will find yourself in the middle of deep tropical forest bordering the Gatun Lake, an artificial lake on the South of Colon.

Upon arrival at Colon, you will visit the Panama Canal Expansion, the largest project at the Canal since its original construction. The project will create a new lane of traffic along the Canal through the construction of a new set of locks, doubling the waterway’s capacity. Discover this place by visiting the New Observation Center of the Canal Expansion.
This is a park style concept based on open platforms and roofed terraces, built in an area of four hectares. You will be able to enjoy in this new center, the construction of the new locks of the Panama Canal in the Atlantic. From here, thanks to its privileged location, you will be able to see the majestic Gatun Lake, where ships continue their transit through the waterway.

The return route to Panama City will take you to the former Panama Canal Zone, where the military installations of the American administration are a gentle reminder of the strategic importance of the area. Make a short stop there to take photos.

At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at your hotel.
