Puerto Cristobal (Panama Caribbean)

Characteristics

Description

Puerto de Cristobal is a large harbour located on the Caribbean sea, near Cristobal (town in Colon, a province of Panama), on the continent of North America.

Two long breakwaters have converted the entire bay into a safe anchorage, protecting shipping in Cristobal harbor from strong north winds, prevailing from January through May.

The mean tidal variation is about 1 foot at Cristobal. The depth of the harbor is maintained at 40 feet or over, and the designated area for anchoring inside the breakwater has a depth varying from 35 to 55 feet. The port offers good shelter and there is adequate space for the safe handling of vessels.
