Hired driver on internet - 'tours by locals'. Prepaid, but really good references. Cost about $70 pp for our party of 3 for full day. Met on dock at agreed time. He drove us across country to Panama City, showing some highlights as we went. Drive time less than 90 minutes each way. Toured Panama City (new & old). Went to Mira Flores Locks on the way back, and saw ships moving through the canal. Holiday in Panama that day, so there were lots of locals who could access locks tour for $5 making it a little crowded. Our Ticket into locks $20, a little steep, but that is why we went. We would do this tour / process again. Read Less

Advised to only stay on Main Street across from terminal, I would check out travel warnings from state department.gov before going into any of these ports.

The area is seedy. The tour sellers were very aggressive all the way to the deteriorating marketplace. The sellers in the shops wouldn't bargain. The best prices can be obtained from the few sellers immediately outside the exit.

I basically got off the ship to purchase postage stamps and mail a postcard to our grandson. The shops that line the street across from the pier had a good selection of local craft items as well as the usual touristy items. Restaurants had fair prices. We were scheduled to depart Colon at 7:30 PM. Six tour buses from ship-sponsored shore excursions pulled up at 7:20! A testament to the promise that the ship will wait for all cruise line sponsored tours to return before the ship departs. Read Less
