Great photos as I passed under it during my whole Panama canal tour. History is interesting - our tour guide on the boat told us about it.

During our tour of Panama with Caravan Tours, we had the opportunity to both go over and go under the Bridge of the Americas, which spans the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal and connects North and South America.

It was raining when we sailed under the huge bridge that carries 55,000 vehicles every day between North and South America. Sheets of water poured off it onto our Island Princess balcony while two crocodiles swam past. Incredible "Wow" moment! Such an important bridge.

Passing over this bridge gives one a sense of history. Seeing all the ships and luxury yachts waiting for their turn to enter the fist Miraflores Lock (over 100 years old!) is awesome. Then knowing you're actually passing from one continent to the next, just...More
