Review and Tips 

The Panama Canal is a wonder of engineering but what not many people know that it is a fresh water canal. It needs a lot of fresh water to function because every time the locks are working the Panama Canal system looses fresh water. So, the Canal Zone is surrounded by rainforest to have a steady supply of fresh rainwater filling the canal system. So, a lot of the Canal Zone is surrounded with forest with a lot of typical Central American wildlife and birds. One of the places to visit is Gamboa where there is a canopy tour and a monkey island.
