Our taxi driver told us we should take some time and go to the top of Ancon Hill which we can see from our rented condo. So, we did exactly that - we hired him to take us up to the top. When you drive up the hill you get to see some very beautiful houses and then you get... More

The views of this beautiful city are spectacular. We took a cab, the driver waited for us while we enjoyed and took photographs.

The view from the top is fantastic. You can see the spiral building in the downtown area and the marina, as well as the Old City. You can walk it, however you need to be in excellent shape to do so. Best to hire someone to drive you as it is a single lane road. We used Panama Roadrunner and... More

Ancon Hill is the highest point in Panama City, from which you can see both the old city and the new. The best way to make this trip is with a private guide who is well-versed on the US history of this area.

Perfect view of the whole Panama City and Canal from up there. Artesans work and shops worth the visit.

This is just a top of a mountain and not much more. Limited parking and the road is narrow (one lane) ans may have to wait. Walking take some effort and more than 30 minutes. Definitely there are plenty or room from improvement of facilities on top; not much there and not very well kept. Used to be an old... More

You have a great view over the city and a walk through natural woods. Go up with a taxi and walk down as I did. But you can also walk up

The hike was short. We took a taxi from Metropolitan Park which is $6 and told the driver to take us to the entrance rather than all the way up. the walk wasn't too strenuous and we made it in 30mins. The view was definitely better than metropolitan park. and it was clear with minimal obstruction. we even saw an... More
