Balboa, Panama Cruise Port

When cruising to Balboa, Panama expect to feel the great Spanish influences all around you. Balboa is the gateway to the capital, Panama City, where many interesting and historic sites can be found. The city offers many amazing views of the gorgeous surrounding waters as well as the Canal, an attraction in itself that you can enjoy on a cruise to Balboa, Panama. The area was founded by Columbus in 1502 and then by Balboa in 1513, where it received its name. The Panama Canal was the main shipping and traveling point to Central and South America during the colonial days, and is still used today in a similar way. In town, there is the Panama Canal Administration Building, built in 1914, that overlooks the port and rest of the city. This area is filled with different wildlife parks, museums and historic places for all ages to enjoy. Below, we have listed a few of our favorite things to do while on your Balboa, Panama cruise:
  • Explore the Old Town, Casco Viejo, filled with Spanish and French influenced historic houses.
  • View the French Plaza that provides amazing panoramic views of the city as well as the Canal.
  • Venture into the famous Metropolitano National Park that has the only rainforest that lies in city limits in the world.
  • Bike or walk along the Amador Causeway, that serves as a breakwater as an entrance to the Canal, with plenty of paths as well as restaurants and shops.
