After transiting the Canal the previous day, while docked in Colon, we took a tour back to the Miraflores Locks And Panama Canal Expansion Observation Center. We got to see, up front and personal, a ship go through both through the original Miraflores Lock on the Pacific side and then a Panamax ship go through the new Canal on the Gulf of Mexico side. A tour well worth taking.

This port was a little rough I drove through Colon on my way to and from from my excursion. From what I observed from my bus ride I wouldn’t want to do a walk about in Colon. Did not look safe for tourist.

Our excursion included a viewing of the new locks, a transcontinental train ride, and a bus tour (including a worthless shopping stop). Good narration on bus and train, and a nice alternative to staying on board.

We did the trip to the native village.. It was deemed to be authentic and that the families were living off the grid, However once walking through the area of the cabins, we saw coke cans and “croc” shoes in the mess under their cabanas.
