What is it about this stunning place that gets your heart pumping? Or makes you want to kick back and stay forever?

Visiting Fort San Lorenzo
Exploring Fort San Lorenzo is not only a lesson in history but candy for the eyes. To get there, you must pass the Panama Canal (another location worth seeing).

The remains of this Spanish fortress is located inside a National Park and you are treated to a fifteen minute drive through a forest teeming with wildlife. Everything from howler monkeys to wild parrots and toucans and wild parrots are easily spotted and heard.

It is about as close to a true jungle you can get.


Exploring the Panama Canal
This is a must. Not just for its historical significance but because of the incredible innovation of the time when it was created.

It took ten years to build and is a sight to behold. Watching the locks fill up with water as the massive ships squeeze through such a tight space makes you realize why it is considered one of the seven wonders of the world.
