The Helicopter Tour
The Beginning of Panama Canal Ocean to Ocean Helicopter Tour
We’ll start our trip going to go to the Bridge of the Americas, Pacific entrance of the Panama Canal. This bridge was built in 1962, becoming the second bridge on the Panama Canal.
Visit the Miraflores Locks

Without the Panama Canal, the largest cities at the west coast of the American Continent wouldn’t be what they are today.
