In the midst of the celebration of national holidays, 1,429 tourists arrived in Colon on the weekend onboard the Celebrity Millenium cruise ship.

With the ship’s arrival, the cruise season begins bringing life back to the ailing tourism sector especially in this region of the country.

According to the Tourism Authority, these tourists visit the Agua Clara lock, the Emberá Parará Puru community in Chagres, and points in Panama City.

The tourism sector was one of the hardest hit by the economic stoppage due to the Covid-19 pandemic and is currently struggling to reactivate, taking advantage of the fact that the incidence of the disease has dropped and 70% of the population is vaccinated.

For residents of Colon, tourism is a form of subsistence in a province where their main source of employment, the Free Zone, has been in decline for several years.
