Things to do in Colón
Though primarily targeting wholesalers, the Free Trade Zone includes a number of shops where consumers can get great deals on high-end merchandise, including gold, jewelry and liquor. Leave time in your schedule to obtain passes, which are required for entrance. You can also enjoy duty-free shopping at the Colón 2,000 Mall. Check out these other attractions:
Gatun Locks – Located approximately eight miles from the hotel, the Gatun Locks present a marvel of engineering. Watch as ships “thread the needle” to enter the canal, and enjoy a beautiful view of Lake Gatun.
Fortifications at Portobelo/San Lorenzo – The Caribbean side of Panama boasts ruins of a fascinating coastal defense system that date back to the 17th century. Spain built sites like Fort San Lorenzo and Fort Farnese to help protect its maritime interests in the New World. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the fortifications are well worth the 20-mile drive west to San Lorenzo or 33 miles east to Portobelo.
Isla Grande – Plan a day trip to this small island, located about two hours away, where you can lounge on the beautiful white sand beach or splash in the crystal-clear water. Make sure you have money for the water taxi, and don’t forget to pack your own bottled water.
