What characteristics of the physical geography of the Isthmus of Panama made the construction of canal so difficult?

From the start, the project was plagued by difficulties. Rain, landslides, escalating costs, fraud, inadequate machinery, and the dread plagues of yellow fever and malaria doomed the project. All work stopped in 1889.

In 1904 the United States began the task of carving a canal through the isthmus. The engineering difficulties involved in cutting through the Isthmus of Panama were enormous. After years of digging and construction, and the expenditure of more than $300 million, the Panama Canal was officially opened in 1914.

Who built the panama canal first and did they succeed and and why?

The French started first, but had to stop when most workers died of Malaria. Then the US started up and succeeded.

What seas does the Suez Canal connect?

The Suez Canal (Arabic: قناة السويس, transliteration: Qanā al-Suways), is a large artificial canal in Egypt, west of the Sinai Peninsula. It is 163 km (101 miles) long and 300 m (984 ft) wide at its narrowest point, and runs between Port Said (Būr Sa'īd) on the Mediterranean Sea, and Suez (al-Suways) on the Red Sea. The canal allows two-way water transportation, most importantly between Europe and Asia without circumnavigation of Africa. Before its opening in 1869, goods were sometimes offloaded from ships and carried over land between the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. The canal comprises seven parts, north and south of the Great Bitter Lake, linking the Mediterranean Sea to the Gulf of Suez on the Red Sea.
