The Panama Canal reputedly generates annual revenues of over two billion US dollars. Very little of that money seems to find its way to Colon - a sad town with terrible roads, terrible housing and terrible poverty. I stayed less than twenty-four hours and that...More

The port of Colon and the part we visited is a very poor, unkept part of Colon. The shopping area was a mixed bag of tourist souvenir shops, restaurants, a bakery, a barber shop and a casino. We spent about 45 minutes in the shopping...More
