Colón is a city and seaport in Panama, beside the Caribbean Sea, lying near the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal. It is the capital of Panama's Colón Province and has traditionally been known as Panama's second city. Originally it was located entirely on Manzanillo Island, surrounded by Limon Bay, Manzanillo Bay, and the Folks River; however, since the disestablishment of the Panama Canal Zone, the city's limits have been redefined to include Fort Gulick, a former U.S. Army base, as well the former Panama Canal Zone towns of Cristobal, Margarita, and Coco Solo. Airport transfers in Colon will pick you up at the Rio Hato International hotel and take you to your hotel. You can also book for transfer from your hotel to the airport upon departure. Save yourself the stress of using public vehicles or taxis.
There are a host of things to do during sightseeing tours, from rainforest or shore excursions, to visiting teach or even shopping. While taking boat tours, you can start the journey at the historic Meliá Panama Canal hotel, located at the Gatun Lake in the province of Colon. During your stay, you can use the hotel's swimming pool, kayaks and stroll through its spectacular gardens and trails. You can also take part in water sports, which will have you paddling the last twelve kilometers of the Chagres River on its way to the Caribbean Ocean in one of the best Panama kayak adventures.
Panama is the only country in the world where you can experience both the Caribbean sea and the Pacific Ocean. Day trip tours take around one hour to get to the Centennial bridge to have a wonderful panoramic view of Gaillard cut (the narrow part of the canal) and Pedro Miguel Locks.
Panama is home to 159 species of mammals, 98 species of reptiles, and 65 amphibious species. Among these are monkeys, sloths, anteaters, spiders and caimans, crocodiles, and many snakes. Much of this ecological paradise can be discovered during outdoor activities.
