Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hopefully you have a private tour or a cruiseline tour arranged. Port area is rather run down. To get to the shopping stores you will have to run through the taxi drivers offering tours. They certainly will be pests.

We needed to get some things at the Super99 at the port and have to say that is the best part of the port.

Wow, after embarking our ship at the Fuerte Amador Cruise Terminal in Panama City, the Colon port is really nice. We disembarked our ship to do a tour of Colon and Panama City after transiting the Panama Canal the previous day. However, the port is clean and new, the surrounding Colon area is pretty rough. In fact our tour of Colon was just driving through Colon, no stopping and heading on the highway back to Panama City. There is really nothing to safely see in the city of Colon.

We took a cruise with the entire family from Miami making a trip stop in Colon (Panama). Taking into consideration that shipping company tour prices were too much expensive, we decided to book them with a local tour operator. So, I do recommend taking it with Tamara (+507.63242898), not only because they are very professional and friendly people, but also because we had the opportunity to visit impressive beaches with transparent water, we saw monkeys and we try local food. Amazing experience!

The Canal is a good experience.
Shopping is a mess, not clean, without information.
City is not a nice view

Our cruise ship went to the port and we caught a shore excursion to the Agua Clara locks at the Panama Canal. When we returned, we walked around the port. The area outside the port looked somewhat like a war torn zone. You could clearly see this from the ship when we arrived. The port area had locals selling their arts and crafts, a few stores, and a restaurant. However, if you walk past those, around the corner to the left there is a Super 99 Store (think mini Wal-Mart) where you can get pretty much anything you forgot from home, or ran out of. We spent about an hour there looking at the toys, different foods and snacks and got some things to bring home. Take a tote bag if you go. We noticed that many crew members from the cruise ship visited the store also. As always in a foreign country, be aware of your surroundings. Stay close to the port and you will should be fine.

The entry port and staging area for those of us on a cruise going for shore excursions. As such, we did not have much processing or waiting time in the area at all - we go direct to ship again with our passes. It was efficient and uneventful. Approaching the area by ship is not as impressive as approaching the Pacific side of the canal - do both if you can! This side is more business looking while Panama City is more like approaching Miami from the sea. Lots of container handling in the area too, both for local use and for container transfer by rail - quite a lot of containers go that way for cost savings if the cargo is not time sensitive.

Dirty, run down, depressed, littered with trash, dog poop everywhere, broken sidewalks, …. In other words avoid this .

We came in on a cruise ship for the day and thought perhaps it would be a nice port but we were mistaken. There may be some nice areas of the city but this isn’t one of them.

There are two gauntlets of people trying to sell their tours that you have to go through. They can be quite aggressive

Not much to do, a few shops but if looking for coffee or souvenirs go the super 99 store, like coffee $2 or so.
