Panama Canal Railway Company

Train in Panama City

This glass-domed train takes passengers on a lovely ride from Panama City to Colón on weekdays, departing at 7:15am and returning at 5:15pm. The train follows the canal, at times engulfed by dense vine-strewn jungle. If you want to relive the heyday of luxury train travel for an hour or two, this is definitely the way to do it.

Note that the Panama City terminus is actually located in the town of Corozal, a 15-minute cab ride from the capital.
