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.

We enjoyed a ship sponsered excursion that showed us some wildlife, rainforest, indigenous people and the new canal in action.

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.

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.


I've always wanted to go through the locks on the Panama Canal. Check that off my Bucket List.
