Ports

Cristóbal, Colón, is a port in Panama named after Christopher Columbus. It is located next to the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal. The province of Colón is full of national parks, making it a perfect palce to go on short and long hiking adventures. You can also visit one of the old churches for their architecture and history.

Cozumel is a Mexican island on the Caribbean Sea, famous for the underwater landscapes, very popular among divers and snorkelling lovers. Cozumel Pearl Farm, Palancar Reef or Santa Rosa Wall are just some of many underwater attractions. If you prefer to stay on dry land though, the island has a lot to offer you as well. Discover Mexico Cozumel Park, visit the Punta Celerain Lighthouse and explore San Gervasio Mayan Archaeological Site for unforgettable experiences.
