Cristobal in detail

Cristobal, Panama is named after its founder Christopher Columbus. Even those who claim to know nothing about history will recognise that name – and understand how this makes Cristobal a very important city!

With only one (albeit large) shopping complex housed in Cristobal’s pier, visitors to the region can rest assured that they will be able to enjoy a stopover completely uninterrupted by the harassments of day to day life. Don’t let the word ‘city’ scare you into thinking of hustle, bustle and chaos – a visit to Panama and Cristobal in particular, lets you experience some of the most beautiful rainforests and deep blue waters on earth (including the famous canal). Many tourists opt to take in the scenery via boat or train – the choice is yours. While you may feel as if visiting Cristobal is a welcome step back in time, visit while you can, because the port is thriving and continues to develop.
