Long held as one of the must-have items on any itinerant cruiser’s docket, your Panama Canal cruise will show you stretches of vibrant rainforest, beautiful shore, and the great locks of the canal itself.

Located on the northern end of the Panama Canal, Limon Bay is a gateway to many nearby cities including Cristobal, Colon and Panama City itself. The port offers fantastic views among other things, including fantastic tours to see native birds and monkeys in the beautiful rainforest nearby, and the serene waters of Limon Bay are a great place to take a swim.
Also known as Puerto Caldera, this port is a lush refuge for wildlife of all kinds, with the surrounding rainforest boasting a whopping 5% of our planet’s biodiversity. The sheer variety of plant and animal species to see makes this an incredible place to go walking and animal spotting, and the Paseo de los Turistas by the port provides plenty of shopping and dining options for cruisers.
A vibrant and beautiful city, when you call at Cartagena, you’ll be right in the heart of the action. Take a walking tour to see stunning plazas, the walls enclosing the old town, and the historic character of this venerable fort city. Enjoy the colours and spirit in every corner, see the local sights, and stop by a café or restaurant for a bite to eat.
While not along the canal itself, Puerto Quetzal’s proximity to Panama gives you a chance to experience the largest Pacific port of Guatemala, and it’s not one you’ll want to miss. Shore excursions are diverse, ranging from full day visits to UNESCO Antigua City to visits to coffee plantations, hot springs, chocolate factories and more.
