Continuing on we will visit the Miraflores Locks and Visitor Center, one of three locks available to the Panama Canal. The Visitor Center has a short video that summarizes the past and present Canal. Four floors of exhibits include historic pieces, interactive modules, video presentations, and models of the canal so you can really understand the huge feat of its construction. Magnificently designed and executed, you will see the consideration that the architects and engineers had for observers that might come to see this incredible locking system. The 80-kilometer channel, actually 48 miles long, joins the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. The ships line up for days to be able to enter the locks at their assigned time, or miss their opportunity. You will not be disappointed, as it seems there is an infinite line of ships waiting to pass by you, whether they go from high to low or reverse in the canal of water.
