Going through the canal in a small boat is worth the cost of the excursion. It gives you a completely different perspective than the transit on the cruise ship.

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.

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.
