Travel To The Most Renowned City In Panama Colon

Colón is one of the most renowned cities in Panama and it is also the capital of Colón Province. I heard a lot about this city and so made up my mind to travel here. The city is located on the Caribbean coast and at the point where the Panama Canal starts. The most fantastic thing that I like in Colon is its Observation Center, which is a park. The viewing platforms Canal Expansion Observation Center is over the Gatún Lake and Atlantic locks canal. You get a mesmerizing look of the city from this place and I recommend this to everyone who is traveling to Colon for the first time and want to see the best things there.
