Canal Zone image

The canal crosses the Continental Divide and links the Pacific and the Caribbean. It can be visited by boat, or viewed from the locks. There are several national parks on either side of the canal, visited by boat or land -the wildlife here shows very little fear of man since the zone was protected (unintentionally, by US occupation) for nearly a hundred years.
