Many Panamanians overlook Portobelo since it sits half way between Colon City and Isla Grande, and they tend to tar them all with the same brush.  It is true that Colon City is in desperate need of redevelopment and Isla Grande is uncomfortably busy on weekends and holidays with daytrippers.  But Portobelo town itself is an oasis of peace and traquility between the other two places.

As soon as you enter the town you feel the history, the small bridges built to carry spanish gold to and from the boats, the old church sitting on the same square since 500 years past.  The lack of investment and development of the town is the main contributor to its historic town.  With very few restaurants or stores, the town has a tranquility not often possible with tourist destinations.
