Miraflores Locks

The Panama Canal is one of the world’s greatest feats of engineering, and sightseers can get an expansive view of canal operations at the Miraflores Locks, where massive ships are raised and lowered 26 meters (85 feet) between the Pacific Ocean and Gatún Lake. The visitor center has an interactive museum dedicated to the canal as well as three observation decks overlooking the operations. Mornings and late afternoons, when ship traffic through the locks is heaviest, are the best times to catch a glimpse.
