It also says that the ideal time to take a diving trip in the Panama Canal are the months between January and April, when the water temperature is around 27°C.

The operator's managing director, Claudia Morales, said: "Alternatively, a spectacular way to enjoy the magnificent view of the canal is to take the train to Colón, the second largest free trade emporium in the world.
