I really enjoyed my visit to the agua clara locks. There were few people and it is a great view of the new locks. There is a person there narrating everything you see in both English and Spanish, and they give you information about not...More

Our cruise ship was docking in Colon and we were excited to visit the Panama Canal. We booked an excursion thru the cruise line because Colon could be dangerous and very congested. It was best to not do it on our own. We were right...More
Must see for anyone with more than a peripheral interest in the Canal. While the visitor platform does not seem to be as close to the locks as in Miraflores, the high elevation provides a good overview.
We visited the Agua Clara locks of the Panama Canal in Colon. They did a great job with the visitor center and includes a short video of the construction project which was very well done. Definitely a must visit if you travel to Panama. Our...More
Mirroring it’s Pacific-side (read: Miraflores) counterpart, the Agua Clara Locks are a result of the decade-long Panama Canal expansion project that began commercial operations in June of 2016. I visited the locks proper and the associated visitor center in the middle of a day-long tour...More

It would be much safer to book a trip with the cruise ship as there may not be any bus back and the taxi would be expensive. The trips that the various cruise ships do are good value generally.

The experience at each is quite different, best is to do both (I was there in March). Miraflores has a big visitors center, with excellent historical exhibits and 2 viewing levels. You can spend a lot of time there. It is... More
The experience at each is quite different, best is to do both (I was there in March). Miraflores has a big visitors center, with excellent historical exhibits and 2 viewing levels. You can spend a lot of time there. It is also crowded. Aqua Clara is smaller with no exhibits, a short movie to watch, and not crowded. Watching the ships is good at both, a little better at Miraflores if you can get up to the fence.
