Favorite thing: The Canal is both an engineering marvel and one
of the most significant waterways on earth.
Stretching 50 miles from Panama City on the Pacific
coast to Colón on the Atlantic side, it provides passage for
over 12,000 oceangoing vessels per year. Seeing a huge ship
make its way through the narrow canal, with huge tracts of
virgin jungle on both sides, is an unforgettable sight.
