Owner description: Picturesque bayside village features the ruins of five Spanish forts, a restored treasure house and the burial place of Sir Francis Drake.

A few rusty canons and the leftovers of some old buildings, right at the Caribbean sea. Not really worth a big trip - but why not combine it with an excursion to Isla Grande, only about 30 minutes boat trip?

El Fuerte de Portobelo is on the coast, in the Province of Colón. It is about two hours from Panamá City. It is worth going there to explore the ruins, see the church, and check out the town.
