If you are planning a trip to Panama you should consider visiting Colón. Economically the city has seen better times, but it is rich in history and culture. It is definitely a city worth visiting or holidaying in. It is the second largest city in Panama and it is the gateway to the Atlantic Ocean from the Panama Canal. It is a major asset for Panamanians because it is an important sea port for touristic and commercial use.
Colón is a beautiful port city where you can take walks in one of the many parks and boardwalks in order to view the sea and ocean. Many people enjoy going to Portobello, which is a small sight where you can find the ruins of five Spanish forts and a Spanish Colonial designed house. This house served as a gateway to take the gold extracted from Peru to Spain during the colonisation era. This is also one of the Panamanian spots protected by the UNESCO World Heritage.
