We went to Campana on the advice of our tour guide. it is not very far from Panama City, and the climate is worlds away. It was nice and breezy with temps in the 70s. The view was amazing, we could see the city in the distance all the way around to the beach resort areas. we went to a... More

Yes, there is a Panamanian flag the size of a basketball court and yes, it is a natural reserve. If you're lucky you could see some wild animals. The three view points are awesome.

If you are traveling along the InterAmericana west of Panama City you will see a large and impressive mountain several miles off the north side of the highway. Those who like mountains will feel drawn toward it. A turn to the north from the small town of Capira will take travelers toward the peak. A bit of adventurous exploring is... More

This parc national is not full of jungle, but also barren hilltops and marvellous views to the distant ocean (weather permitting!) , the drive up to the peak is possible now with any normal vehicle, the road twists and turns until you are there. Several places tp stop en -route for aa very peaceful view over the tree tops and... More

I just love the views from the top of Cerro Campana, Panama. People around the area are also very friendly. Ocean views as we drive to the top of the mountain from diverse points. Planning for future asphalt roads are under way with electricity and water availability. Various B&B opening and a brand new boutique resort very soon. I have... More

Great view and a good place for hiking. Not a tourist spot, therefore it makes it even a better place to visit. Not far from the city either.

Another place a friend took me for a drive. Surely a place to be cool when tropical heat/humidity gets one down.

Deserted. Nice walks if you are fit. It is very steep.

We went on a tour with Panama Roadrunner tours that they were just setting up, called 'Off the Beaten Path', which included a trip up the mountain to Campana national park....there were wonderful views of the lush countryside, and it was a welcome break to be away from the crowds at Decameron for the afternoon. You could hike trails if... More

The park has easy and some hard trails. Better to go in the dry season - May to December as there is a fair bit of mud on the trails in wet season. I suggest you start the climb on the road to this park in early AM. There are places with parking to pull off to see the amazing... More
