This is a great train ride! For $20 per adult, and $10 per child, you can take the old train (it is a fabulously redone train and is not "old" at all!) from Panama City to Colon at 7:15 in the morning. It doesn't return until around 5 pm so we took a cab back. This train became the backbone of the Panama Canal build and is chronicled in David McCullough's Path Between the Seas. It was well worth the time spent!
