DAY 2, Thursday - Panama City Tour & Miraflores Locks
The day begins with a tour of Panama City's "3 cities", Old Panama, Casco Antiguo, and Modern Panama. Old Panama, also known as Panama La Vieja, is the site of the original city founded by Pedro Arias de Avila in 1519. Tour the archaeological site of the settlement, which finally met its end in 1671 after an attack by the infamous pirate Henry Morgan. From here, continue to the historic center of Panama City, Casco Viejo, the location to which the settlement was moved after the destruction of the original location. In 2003, Casco Antiguo was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and with its mix of architectural styles, including Caribbean, Republican, Art Deco, French, and Colonial, this area has become the second most popular destination in Panama. Take in the atmosphere of this important section of Panama City which houses the majority of the city's monuments such as the Catedral Metropolitana and the National Theater before your tour takes you to Modern Panama, where skyscrapers dominate the skyline. In the afternoon, complete your tour of the city with a visit to the Miraflores Locks, the first set of locks located on the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal. Here you have the opportunity to view the lock in operation and watch in amazement as over 20 million gallons of water are transferred in less than 10 minutes. Balance of the day at leisure
