Notice the architecture - from crumbling façades of days gone by to beautifully restored buildings in the classic style. See the locals as they go about their everyday life from selling crafts on street corners, to shop keepers running their businesses. This little area is filled with cultural diversity! Continuing on, visit the Miraflores Lock Visitor Center. View a 3D IMAX movie on the history and construction of the canal and visit the mini-museum, depicting the struggles that were encountered.

A highlight of the day may be visiting a designer who takes four years to create the dress worn by the Queen during the four-day carnival celebration.

Our Tour Manager, Jolie, was outstanding. We were totally impressed with her professionalism, courtesy, empathy, and kindness. She is also informative and a lot of fun. She treated all of us with dignity and warmth. She kept us informed about departure times, meal times,and opportunities for self-touring. We appreciated her cheerful and fun-loving attitude. Our bus driver, Mike was terrific. Great driver, very professional, and personable. He went out of his way to transport us to different destinations and provided great service. The pick up service drivers, Steve and Ken were on-time, courteous and friendly.

First time with Mayflower Tours, it was great. We will travel with them again. The tour guide added optional attractions not listed on the tour itenerary which was a plus to us. Affordable Tours agent, Brendan, was great to deal with too. All and all a good experience.

This trip was amazing. It was exciting, interesting, and I appreciated the free time and flexibility to explore on my own. Elisabetta was an excellent tour specialist. I would travel with her again.
