The famous Panama Canal uses water from rivers, lakes and the dense pristine rainforest, to raise the waterlevel for ships to cross the locks.
Panama is a country so heavily defined by its canal, in itself a magnificent feat of engineering and ingenuity, that is easy to think there's little more to it than preposterously big shipping containers (and perhaps a global financial scandal). But Panama could just as easily be defined by the verdant virgin jungle that fringes the canal, its many unspoilt beaches lapped by crystal-clear waters or the colourful wildlife of the Soberania national park. The glistening skyscrapers of the capital city hide a historic and charming core, whilst the Interoceanic train takes you on a scenic jaunt through the heart of the country and boat trips whip you off to coral reefs and national parks, protected as biosphere reserves & World Heritage sites. No trip here would be complete without a ride along the world's most famous canal, but there's a lot more to be explored in a country full of surprises.
