Things To Do In Panama City
No trip to Panama City would be complete without a visit to see the famous Panama Canal. But how do you get there many ask? You can hail a taxi if you want but they tend to be expensive and soulless - OK lets face it, the driver will do his best to point out some sights along the way if you ask, but what do you do if he only speaks Spanish and he'll only really take you there and you've find another cab to get you back!
Since the City Sightseeing open top bus tour launched in Panama City in 2012, they have been carrying thousands of happy passengers to see one of the greatest engineering feats of the modern world and tickets are cheap too from as little as $29 for adults. This gives you unlimited hop-on hop-off sightseeing travel aboard their open top buses over either a 24-hr or 48-hr period. There is a dedicated stop at the Miraflores Lock Canal Centre where you can hop-off and then back on again when you are ready. Great value if you ask us!

But you don't just see the famous Panama Canal and the Miraflores Lock, the open top bus - which has two routes by the way - takes in some of the City's other great landmarks like Isla Flamenco, UNESCO listed site Casco Viejo, Panama Multiplaza, the Amador Causeway and the fantastic Biomuseo designed by Frank Gehry.
Jumping aboard the City Sightseeing Panama tour is also ideal for cruise ship passengers who dock in Panama. With only a short time to explore, the open top bus is quick and convenient plus cheaper than most of the shore excursions.
