A vibrant centre of industry and tourism

The Espinar Colon area is highly popular and convenient amongst local workers, business travellers and holiday visitors flowing from the nearby Panama Canal and the free trade zone of Zona Libre Colon, where companies from all over the world converge to take advantage of tax free goods. Canal workers are the hotel's primary clientele, and can occupy up to 100% of its rooms at any one time. Any free rooms are rented to walk-ins, of which there are plenty - as well as business-related arrivals from Zona Libre Colon, the hotel is only 10 minutes from the international port of Colon 2000, which received 340,000 tourists in the last tourist season. In addition, a new state-of-the-art hospital is under construction in the area, which should provide another source of continual business for the investment.

A modern and comfortable retreat

The Best Western Hotel & Suites Zona Libre Colon features all the modern conveniences and facilities typical of a reputable hotel chain, and has already proved hugely popular despite only being open for just over six months. Guests can get active in the gym, cool off in the pool, relax with family and friends in the on-site restaurant or one of two bars, and take care of last-minute work tasks in the business centre. Complimentary wi-fi is available throughout the hotel, while the individual suites feature plasma TV and memory foam pillows and mattresses.
