Miraflores Locks visitor center

We will be passing through the cansl on a cruise ship, but we have the evening before to spend in the city. Is it worth the $79 per person to tour the visitor center in the evening on a tour? We will not be able to be there during the day when it is usually open, but $160 seems like a lot of money for two people to have a nightime tour of the visitor center, or am I missing something?

What a rip-off!! Yes, you can take a taxi to Miraflores. You shouldn't pay more than $5 US. (Always ask the price before you get in. If the taxi driver wants more, go to the next taxi.) And, yes, it's a safe area. As noted above, entry to the Visitors' Center and the museum is $8 for adults.

hazenumber1, It would be so much better if you posted your question as a New Question rather than posting on an old post (from a year and a half ago) mainly because many travelers don't look at the dates on the original post and the information given back then is now outdated, and even incorrect .

To keep info current, please try to post future questions as new posts. Thanks so much for helping keep this forum current.

Yes you can get off the ship and see the museum yourself IF your ship is docked at a time when the museum is open. That was not the case with our trip. We came in late and were only there at night so if you wanted to see it, you had to take the tour. Our friends said it was nice to see but not really worth the price because of the nighttime time frame. I believe the ship will provide transportation to get you into the area, but they probably charge. You would really have to check with your individual ship.
