La Zona Libre

free trade zone, shopping

A walled compound within Colón, and the second largest free trade zone in the world after Hong Kong. Unfortunately, it is not aimed at tourists but to wholesalers, so it's not the shopping paradise you might imagine. If you're a foreign tourist and just buy a bottle of perfume or an iPod or something like that while you're in the Zona Libre, that's fine, but you will NOT be allowed to leave with big bags full of stuff.
