Duration: 8 hours.

Portobelo, home of the Black Christ, is a town full of history and legends. It became one of the most important points in the transfer of gold and silver because of its system of fairs and galleons and its long harbor and forts built to protect the growing town.

Portobelo introduces visitors to the adventure and intrigue of the age of pirates and conquistadors. Visitors tour the forts and newly restored customs building in addition to the local church, which houses the famous “Black Christ”. 
Return by van.

++ Optional at an additional cost $65.00 ? (Train runs during week days, NOT weekends) 
 
On the way back, you will board the transcontinental train for a historical ride alongside the Panama Canal. This 8th wonder of the world is famous for its breathtaking beauty and drama of its construction.
Originally completed in 1855, The Panama Railroad became the first transcontinental railroad. The French Panama Canal Company purchased the railroad in 1880 to assist in their attempt to build the Panama Canal. In 1904, the United States purchased the New Panama Canal Company's assets from the French, including the railroad. The United States rebuilt and operated the railroad until 1979, when it was transferred to Panama under the terms of the Panama Canal Treaty. In 1998, Panama privatized the railroad and awarded a 50?year concession to the Panama Canal Company, a joint venture of Kansas City Southern and Mi?Jack Products, to rebuild and operate the line. The new "reborn" railroad began operations in 2000. The visual charms of this train ride will make this an unforgettable trip.
