This May we’re gearing up for the launch of Peter’s Hidden Gems of 2013. This original web series has broken ground by highlighting some of the world’s most unexpected and often overlooked destinations.

Peter has been on the road shooting throughout the year, but we decided to offer a behind-the-scenes look at our first destination for 2013…Hidden Gems: Panama! Here’s a sneak peek at some of the locations and adventures you’ll see coming up this summer.

Gatun Locks on the Panama Canal

Shooting at the Gatun Locks, the largest set of locks on the Panama Canal on the Atlantic Coast. The locks are considered among the greatest engineering works ever to be undertaken at the time, when they opened in 1914. No other concrete construction of this size was undertaken until the Hoover Dam in the 1930s.
