“Nice view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We drove to the top of the hill, nice views of the city, learning about the Ancon Hill was interesting and sad about the kids that died trying to put the flag on the top of the hill.

“Nice view of the city”

You get a very nice view of Panama City, panama canal. You can hike or go by bike. We went by bus, but it seems like great to hike or to go by bike...

“Look Out Over Panama City”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

This spot is on the former US base in Panama and is a high hill with big look out at the city and we saw toucans there which was neat but I wouldn't go out of my way to get here as it wasn't necessarily worth the trip.

“The view is fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

The panoramic view from Ancon Hill is wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed it as well as the perspective one gets of what old Panama, canal Panama and new Panama is all about.

“Fantastic view of Panama City!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Standing on Ancon Hill, you feel like you're looking directly down into Casco Viejo and along the coastline to the financial district and more modern parts of Panama City. Well worth the trip, even if you have to wait for the opportunity to head up the hill. (The viewing area can only handle 5 cars at a time).
