Colon

4.1
Landmarks · Historic Sites · National Parks
Founded in the 1850s by Americans building the country's first railroad, Colon is now one of the largest duty-free ports in the world. Despite its industrial and commercial importance, the city remains off the radar for most travelers, largely thanks to its reputation as a dangerous place where unemployment remains chronic and street crime endemic. The few tourists who take a trip to Colon use it as a base for day trips to the nearby attractions, which include tropical forests filled with exotic birds, historic colonial forts, and a giant man-made lake with a network of canal locks. Plan how to spend your time in Colon and other destinations in Panama using our Panama trip maker site.
