During the building of the Canal by the United States, the plan arose to create a lake making the construction easier because lifting up the water level excavations did not have to be that profound. A large earthen wall was built in the Chagres River and several villages were flooded when the water rose to form the Gatun Lake. Already in these early days, the awareness existed of the importance of ecology in the Panama Canal, because it depends largely on rainwater for its operation. Therefore the watershed of the Panama Canal has always been well protected. This adventure starts with boarding your air-conditioned coach and transferring to the Melia Resort. This is a great tour for adventurous passengers. Nature is the most common sight in the area where wildlife is abundant. The tour will include a Kayak ride around Gatun Lake, and a visit to Gatun Locks where you can see the operation of the Panama Canal.

NOTES

  • Witnessing a ship transiting the canal cannot be guaranteed. 
  • Minimum age is 12 years 
  • Maximum weight is 220 lbs.
