On my first visit to Colon, Panama, the Four Points Sheraton and the Melia Panama Canal. The Melia won my vote hands down. The fact that the Melia is not too near the city is a definite plus. The air was so bad my first...More

Yellow fever vaccination is only required if you come from a country when the yellow fever exist, is a precaution of Panama Authorities in order to prevent Yellow Fever in their country. The vacconation proof -at least in my case as peruvian tourist- is a yellow card extended by “ministerio de salud” that certifies that I have received the vaccin 10 days prior to arrives at Panama.
Tocumen is in panama city (Pacific ocean shore) and Melia Panama canal is in Colon (Atlantic Ocean shore). I was at Tocumen in August, and I went to Colon by Taxi Cab for US$ 90.00 (3 persons plus luggage) in a very confortable TOyota SUV that we got at 5he airport. You can also ask for the service at internet, and is about $80 from Tocumen to Melia in Colon.
The trip is about one hour long, in a very good highway, sourrounded by the forest and lago gatun.
