Colon

3.9
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. Colon is in Colon Province. Make the most of your holiday in Colon by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Panama online tour itinerary planner .
