We will be going to the hotel Melia Panama Canal in Colon in late December. We are on our own to get from Panama City airport to the hotel. We arrive at the airport after 9pm. Can anyone advise the best method of travelling to the hotel, about 70 miles we understand, bus,train, taxi etc. (seems a long way to travel by taxi). How much should we expect to pay? We were not planning to rent a car. Would it be best to stay in Panama City overnight when we arrive? How safe is Panama overall and Panama City? Reading replies to other postings suggests that Colon is unsafe and now we are a little concerned.
