Welcome to Colón Province


The region's incredible history encompasses the earliest European explorers. During the colonial era, these coastal cities ranked among the world’s richest; their gold and silver stores enticed everyone 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.
