Add to Itinerary

The Fort at San Lorenzo was first built during the late 16th century. King Philip II of Spain ordered a fortress to be built to protect the mouth of the Rio Chagres, which was heavily used by commerce and slaves ships.

This entry was also the easiest route for pirates and buccaneers looking for gold, and the location of the fort provided an extraordinary view of any approaching ships.

It is one of the most complete forts built in Panama and is filled with stories of pirates and buccaneers that sailed the water for centuries.

Its view of the Chagres River and the Caribbean Ocean together is a natural show that you should appreciate.

The Agua Clara Visitor Center is a place where the Panama Canal has made it clear that both its legacy and its grandeur will continue to bear fruit for the world. With an unparalleled view, this place is waiting for you and all those who want to enjoy a pleasant experience enriched with interesting facts, but especially by being part of the history of the route that unites the world.

Lunch is included and we are certain you will be impressed by it's quality.
