Welcome to Colón Province

The region's incredible history encompasses the earliest European explorers. Black roots also run deep, and Colón was the birthplace of today’s ultra-popular punta music (better known abroad as reggaetón).

During the colonial era, these coastal cities ranked among the world’s richest; their gold and silver stores enticed pirates from English privateer Sir Francis Drake to Admiral Edward Vernon. Today the fallen fortresses and cannons embedded in the coral reefs recall the fallen Spanish empire.
