Heading to the Caribbean Sea, we will board for one hour the railway of Panama opened in 1855 as the first route railway between the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean.  In addition to its history, this train follows a picturesque route through the Isthmus of Panama. It borders the channel passing by a lush tropical jungle, Miraflores and Pedro Miguel Locks, the Culebra Cut (Continental Divide) and the Gatun Lake connecting one of the more attractive touristic corridor of the world.

Upon arrival to Colon City coasts on the Caribbean Sea, our guide will be waiting for you to continue with a trip back in time by visiting the imposing the San Lorenzo Fort dating back to 1597, built at the mouth of the Chagres River as part of the Spanish colonial defense system. San Lorenzo Fort is within the National Park so we can see a dense forest and perhaps, the emergence of the curious howler monkeys that are felt from the top of the trees.

Explore the rainforest that covers the watershed of the Canal along the trail, outdoor displays and learn surprising details of the construction of the expanded canal. An informative video will synthesize in 15 minutes, years of effort and data about the technology used to build this mega construction.   Next we will enjoy a delicious buffet in the Melia Panama Canal Hotel located on the Gatun Lake and which is another protagonist of the time of the construction of the interoceanic road.

 To return, we will take the road which will allow us to see other views of the Cordillera Central, the Chagres River, and towns along the route of the Canal.
