The capital of the province of Colon bears the same name as the province and it is the 2nd largest city in the Republic of Panama. It is located at the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal. The city of Colon is the most important crossroad of merchandise traffic of the republic.
This is thanks to the Colon Free Trade Zone where most of the import/export is handled. This Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal is one of the largest port/haven systems in Latinamerica. The population of Colon is predominantly from African-Antillean origin which is quite a contrast from Panama city which is a melting pot of people
