“Cute little town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Lots of shops to check out where we were. We did not have a lot of time between out tour and the ship getting ready to leave. Would love to return & explore more!

“A squatter city of over 60,000 people”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Colon is a city that was abandoned because all of the jobs moved to Panama City, the capital. What happened next is that squatters moved into the abandoned building and this is the present state of affairs. It is a pathetic example of the lack of urban planning and the impact of poverty. There are reportedly over 60,000 people living in these conditions.

“Makes Port-au-Prince look like a Sandals Resort”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

A motion picture company wanted to show the squalor of Port au Prince but instead, they used Colon as a backdrop since conditions there are so much worse.

“Shopping in Colon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We didn't spend much time shopping as we were soaking wet from the rain but the 99 store has some good prices. We looked in some of the other stores but didn't buy much. Typical souvenir shops. Beer at the restaurant was $3.68. Not bad price compared to the $6 beer in Aruba.
