Panama’s first national park, this one was created thanks to a landscape created by the now-extinct El Valle de Antón volcano. Avid bird-watchers will love it here, as will visitors who want to take in the incredible views from the park’s lookout spots.

My wife and I drove to the park and we're very impressed with the natural beauty Imposing rocky crags with a variety of trees. The mirador has amazing views and many trails to hike. Not crowded with tourists and very friendly people. Lots of plants for sale along the road too. Good road to drive too. Recommend a trip there... More

This place is not far off the Interamerican Highway- the entrance is west of Capira on the mountain side of the road just past the Sinaproc building. There are a couple of outlooks with parking, and some people actually hike down toward the valley. You can see out over the mountains all the way to the coastline. It is a... More

I had the chance to accompany a group having a biology class on site. If you have the chance to get a guide, you can learn so many things! Even on your own, it's a wonderful park.

Really cool set of hiking paths. The park starts at the top of a mountain overlooking a cliff. According to the park ranger, there are 11 large cliffs you can rappel. Apparently, you rappel down one, hike to the next and so on. Can't wait to try!!!

I think it is a nice place to go. To feel the natural ambiance and take advantage of an amazing panoramic view to admire the mountains and the seaside landscapes. It is easy to get there.

First of all, this hike can be either normal or terribly hard depending on your hiking level. What is true no matter how expert you are is, if you are to climb this, ask for a guide because it is not signalized and its very easy to get lost. Getting there is fairly easy, as the road is in very... 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
