Without a doubt, the Panama Canal is one of mankind's greatest feats of engineering, uniting the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific. It's exciting to view the Panama Canal on an excursion from Panama City -- but even more exhilarating (not to mention bucket list-worthy) to actually traverse it. Panama Canal cruises allow travelers to cross the historic passageway as part of extended trips also exploring destinations in Mexico, Central America and South America.

Cities like Panama City and San Jose boast world-class amenities and attractions like luxury shopping malls and museums. All have tons to offer travelers, whether staying a week or simply passing through.
