Layover in Panama C then going to Bocas - Canal tour possibl

Arriving at 230pm in Panama City and taking the latest afternoon flight(3-4pm?) to Bocas on the following day. Is it feasible to get in a Canal tour in that time, or even wing it myself and be able see a nice portion before the flight to Bocas?

thank you

By tour do you mean take an actual boat thru some of the locks or just go to the Miraflores? You have time for MIraflores no problem and then it is easy and close to get to Allbrook. Maybe on the day you land you can have dinner in Casa Viejo to experience that part of PC. Now your main issue is your luggage and what to do with it when you are trying to do stuff.

If you decide to stay overnight at Country Inn & Suites Amador, you could leave your luggage there while you go to the Miraflores visitors' center. Since the hotel is five minutes or less from Albrook Airport, it would be a very short "back track" to return for your luggage on your way to Albrook.
