Miraflores Visitor Center

Miraflores 2000

Seeing the Panama Canal is on the "must do" list of every tourist visiting Panama City.

A trip to the Miraflores Locks Visitor Center was part of the Panama City Tour that we took with "Your Man In Panama" tours.

Since I took so many pictures during our visit to the Miraflores Locks Visitor Center, I split them up into two parts.

This page covers just the Miraflores Locks and the Maersk Panamax cargo ship that happened to be passing through during our visit. The other photos are in my Panama Canal Museum gallery.

The Miraflores Locks Visitor Center is located about 15 to 20 minutes away from downtown Panama City.
