Port strange, however if you can get out of Colon to rainforest or old fort it is worth it. If staying in Panama City the train from Panama City to Colon is worth the early morning.

went to a flea market and a mall in a taxi. My companion wanted a Panama hat so the Taxi driver took us to a small flea market that had prices that were a fraction of the mall prices. We shared the taxi with another couple.

Get an excursion, sketchy town. I passed thru town in a bus and based on the ghetto I saw I would say excursion or go to the terminal and back to the ship. Not safe on own.
