The hotel is in one of the suburbs of Colon, which is a good thing.
Downtown Colon is the pits, though they are making an effort to clean it up.
The hotel has a great swimming pool and sits on a peninsula. Not really much...More
We enjoyed the good food and drinks in the "all inclusive" package. The only one working hard (and with a big smile) in the restaurant was little Ana, and the hotel needs more employees like her. The hotel management also has to invest on improving...More
The hotel is a nice old brick and mortar building. However, there is a very loud disco on the bottom floor that plays way too loud on the weekend. My father's room was directly above it and he couldn't sleep until they stopped playing around...More
Old School of the Americas building constructed c. 1963. It needs several upgrades today, but is well located and secure and safe place in an area in some distress.

Yellow fever vaccination is only required if you come from a country when the yellow fever exist, is a precaution of Panama Authorities in order to prevent Yellow Fever in their country. The vacconation proof -at least in my case as peruvian tourist- is a yellow card extended by “ministerio de salud” that certifies that I have received the vaccin 10 days prior to arrives at Panama.
Tocumen is in panama city (Pacific ocean shore) and Melia Panama canal is in Colon (Atlantic Ocean shore). I was at Tocumen in August, and I went to Colon by Taxi Cab for US$ 90.00 (3 persons plus luggage) in a very confortable TOyota SUV that we got at 5he airport. You can also ask for the service at internet, and is about $80 from Tocumen to Melia in Colon.
The trip is about one hour long, in a very good highway, sourrounded by the forest and lago gatun.
