Reviewed June 5, 2014

While waiting for our cruise ship. Had time to shop and eat lunch. Shops and food spots were rather high.

“The armpit of Panama!”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

We needed to be in Colon to get our truck out of a container, shipped from Cartagena Colombia to Colon, Panama as we are overlanding across the Americas. Colon was about as bad as it gets, think of Key West after the apocalypse and you start getting the picture! We were told it was unsafe to walk anywhere outside of the Free Trade zone… BTW: No deals in Colon, electronics and everything else are not a bargain as they would make you believe… Example, Nikon 7100 at 1649$ US, seen advertised in US for 1349$, exact same thing with lens… If you happen here from a cruise ship, stay on board, enjoy the pool! Hope this review was helpful!!!

“Colon, Panama”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

We stopped there on a cruise ship. We were only there about 2 hours...long enough to look thru all the junk/sourvinor shops. It's dirty here and I wouldn't feel safe leaving the shopping area right by the cruise ship port. It's fine to get off the ship and stay right in these shops.

“Cute little town”
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!
