"Colon, Panama" Colón by Stephen-KarenConn

Colón Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 46 photos

Colon, named for Christopher Columbus, is a seaport town on the Caribbean coast of Panama, near the eastern entrance to the Panama Canal. We sailed into Colon on March 28, 2007, on the anniversary of our first date and two days before our fifth wedding anniversary.

Since this was the first time either Karen or I had been to Panama, we spent little time in the city of Colon itself, but passed through it twice on a bus tour across the Isthmus of Panama where we saw a portion of the Panama Canal and the nation's capitol, Panama City. Still, we spent a short while in Colon looking in shops and viewing the city streets.

    Looks like things sure have changed from the '80's when we made a half transit of the canal. They didn't let us off the ship! Don't remember seeing any development around there at all.

    The shops in Colon gave some colour to the place. Will be coming back to this page to see more of Colon. Regards
