The history of this man made lake is very interesting. Ships wait their turn to traverse the locks of the canal. The shore shows terraced earth making the cut to create the canal.

It was incredible trying to count all the ships in the lake crossing the Panama Canal. They were lined up everywhere. We were also able to see the dam creating the lake. Frigate birds were abundant and gorgeous to watch. We spent time here watching other vessels enter and work

Views for the Gamboa Rainforest in to the lake were great. The charter boat rides to the lake were great.

Lake Gatun was full of surprises at every turn of the tour boat we were on. We saw so much wildlife! I spotted a manatee! There were so many birds. We also saw a few lodeges along the shore. It would be a great place to stay.
