"Panama Canal" Provincia de Panamá by CDM7

Provincia de Panamá Travel Guide: 554 reviews and 1,351 photos

A fantastic engineering effort.

The first firm effort to build an all water route through Panama began with the French in 1880,but financial problems and diseases made the idea fail.After its independence in 1903,Panama negotiated an agreement with the United States for canal construction and this would be finished in in 1914.The United States managed the waterway until 1999 when Panama took over full operation and maintenance of the canal.

    I will visit Panama for the first time this year, and probably I go to see the canal then.

    It sounds really interesting to go through the Panama Canal on a cruise ship. Great that you have done it twice!
