Gatun Locks and San Lorenzo

We will leave the hotel and using a modern highway will go to the North of the country. After taking a detour we will get closer to the Canal entering the Gatun locks we will be able to see, if there are vessels using the canal, the rising or lowering the water levels after the opening or closing of the steel gates. A full explanation of the canal operation will also be offered at this point. Afterward we will cross the the canal using a road built at the bottom of the locks to go to the San Lorenzo Fort crossing the Fort Sherman, a US military base, grounds where the legendary Jimmy beach is located. The San Lorenzo fort is one of the oldest Spanish forts in America. The pirate Henry Morgan was jailed here and he learned of the Crosses Path used to move the gold from Panama to the Caribbeann shore to wait for its shipment to Europe. At a later date he used this way to attack Panama City from the back to destroy and sacked it. This fact plus the open ocean waters in front of the Fort caused to plan the construction of three forts around Portobelo and divert the shipments that way. Finally we will depart back to the city hotel you are staying at.
