Gatun Lake is the central area of the Panama Canal. Lake cruises are available, or it is part of the full transit of the canal. Very enjoyable.

You'll certainly visit this lake if you take any tour concerning the Panama canal.
It's an artificial man made lake with a prime purpose ensuring enough water for the canal to rise or lower the passing ships. Apart from that, from the boat cruise starting point there was a resort built for those who appreciate nature, wildlife and fishing in that area.

Man made lake whose water operates the locks by raising and lowering the ships. Man made marvel which also serves over 160 species of native mammals.
