tour from Colon to Maria Chiquita & area
Hello - my husband and I will be arriving into Colon on the 13Mar for the
day. We are birders and wonder if you know of a tour company for a 1/2 day
tour in and around the area including a visit to the Embera village?
Colon is the most dangerous city in Panama and one of the worst ones in Central America. Take extra precautions and try to arrange a taxi from a reliable source to pick you up and drive you at as quickly as possible.
It's basically a slam town with high poverty and serious crime rates. All travellers are advised against visiting Colon as being a victim of a crime is quite likely. Read wikitravel, fco.gov.uk and other websites - and pls take them seriously.
Otherwise, Panama is a nice country and beside Colon and some parts of Panama City, you should be safe.
Didn't want to scare but Colon has a very bad reputation...
Have a safe trip!
