Colón

Safety

Travelers who explore Colón on foot risk being mugged, and the route between the train station and the bus terminal is especially notorious. Do all your traveling in a taxi, rental car, or on a guided tour. If you do the Panama Railway trip on your own, take one of the shuttle vans to the Colón 2000 (pronounced coh-loan dose-mill) cruise-ship terminal, where you can rent a car or hire a taxi to see the sights near town.
