Panama Canal, Panama
The Panama Canal bisects the country just to the west of Panama City and was opened in August 1914 with a third, wider lane of locks added in June 2016. This artificial 82km-long waterway in Panama connects the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean. The banks of the canal are covered in rain forest and national parks. Central Panama stretches out from the canal across three provinces and into two oceans to comprise everything from the mountains of the Cordillera Central to the west, to the Caribbean coral reefs and colonial fortresses in the north, to the beaches of the Pearl Islands in the Bahía de Panamá (Bay of Panama) in the south. The coast on either side of the canal's Caribbean entrance offers the remains of colonial fortresses surrounded by jungle, half a dozen beaches, and mile upon mile of coral reef. The mountains to the east of the canal hold flora and fauna and indigenous Emberá villages.
