Experience the culture, the wildlife while you sail along the historic Chagres River and above the petrified forest of the Gatun Lake. Follow the old Las Cruces Trail a silent witness to Spaniard pursuit of gold, a key point of Pirate stories and the easiest way to tranship between South America and Europe.
Set on a cliff overlooking the river mouth of Chagres and the Caribbean Sea is located San Lorenzo Fort, this fortress was constructed between 1598 and 1601 for the main purpose of protecting the Spanish ships which exited the Chagres River in order to sail back to Europe. In 1670 Pirate Joseph Bradley took the fortress with the help of a plan crafted by famous Pirate Henry Morgan. This is a journey full of experiences.
