Crossing the spectacular Bridge of the Americas at the Pacific, we again admired the truly awesome Panama Canal.

Sailed under this bridge on our Northerly crossing (Pacific to Caribbean). Beautiful bridge. It is the first sight you see when you begin the Panama Canal crossing on the Pacific side.

A not too slow ride over the bridge during locking hours will offer a real good impression. Your visit should be supplemented with a view on the bridge from the biodiversity museum.

It has a beginning & an end. You can drive over it and it doesn't collapse. It's a bridge, no more or less beautiful than other bridges you've cross in your lifetime. No need to visit it unless you have to drive on it.

The sheer size of the bridge is really something. You can see it from quite a distance, even from the Old Town.

This was the first Bridge built across the canal but it is still impressive. It provides a route to drive from north to South America.

The bridge of The America's is a great span. It is fun to watch from a cruise ship. They are also building one at Cristonbol on Atlantic side.

This was one of the two bridges we passed beneath during our cruise through the Panama Canal. After passing under this one, you are in the Pacific Ocean with great views of Panama City.
