The vision of the project is to enhance a cruise visitor’s experience during a daylong call or overnight pre- or post-cruise stay in Colon. Most cruisers are eager to visit the Panama Canal locks or explore the island’s natural places and cultural heritage, but the conveniently located Colón 2000 complex invites them to do a bit of shopping or grab a snack on the way from their tour bus back to the ship. For repeat visitors and cruise guests who prioritize the onboard experience over busy bus tours, the facility offers an easy and safe spot to stretch their legs and enjoy some time off the ship without having to leave the port.
