Colon is an industrial city by the Atlantic entrance of the Panama Canal making it a popular stop for cruise ships doing either a partial or full transit of the canal.
Where You're Docked
Two piers are used for cruise ships, Colon 2000 and Cristobal. Colon 2000 is the primary pier and has a good sized shopping center with shops, restaurants, hotels, casinos and a 24 hour supermarket with cheap liquor.
Due to a high crime rate and not much to see in Colon itself, it is advised not to leave the cruise terminal area unless taking a registered taxi or tour.
