Colon Port - Panama

Thank you for visiting this website about the Province of Colon in the Republic of Panama. The Province, with a population of 200,000 residents, is located on the Atlantic coast of Panama.

The Republic of Panama, with a total population of 2.8 million people, is a small but vital country in Central America. The Panama Canal, built and formerly owned by the US Government and now owned by the Republic of Panama, runs through Panama and provides a vital waterway link to the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

Colon, the principal city of Colon Province, is located at the Atlantic entrance to the Canal. For over a century the city of Colon had been a beautiful and colorful European style metropolis and its people enjoyed a prosperous lifestyle.

However, over the last several decades, unemployment had reached 60% of the labor force in the Province, resulting in a severe economic decline, causing an extreme hardship on the population.
