Toro Point Lighthouse (Punta Toro) - Bahía Limón, Panama

The Toro Point (Punta Toro) Lighthouse is located on the west side of Limon Bay at the entrance to the Panama Canal in Panama. It is across from the city of Colon. It sits on the property that was Fort Sherman which was a U.S. Army base and their training centre for jungle warfare. The light sits at the base of the long west breakwater marking the entrance to the canal from the Caribbean/Atlantic side.  The light was constructed in 1893 and is a 27.5 metre (90 foot) steel skeletal tower. The light is active.  Unfortunately the photos are quite distant when taken in March 2016.
