Very confusing place to hike. At least the paths. We didn't get it right and were actually hiking a different path than we intended. But hey, was a good hike after all, with a great view of the mountains and the coastline.

Happened to be a very rainy day, still the drive was pleasant and the vistas beautiful. Gives you a real feel for the Panamanian mountainous countryside

A beautiful place for hiking, getting in touch with nature and forget about the noise and smoke of the city. I went to this place with friends, we spent several hours walking through the hills and it couldn't be more peaceful. There you can experience the tropical forest, see a big diversity of plants and enjoy a beautiful landscape view.... More

Try hiking at Campana and you'll have an amazing experience with the panamanian biodiversity and the luxury of the tropical rain forest. It's important to contact ANAM before going to get more information. Take good sneakers and insect repellent with you.

You need a good guide for this excursion. We hiked into the hills, where it was cool and refreshing, a welcome change from Panama City. Our kids loved this day - while it wasn't a long hike (2 km each way) to the top where the cross is, it's an adventure. We used the hand rails and ropes available to... More

We spent about a two hours here and really enjoyed the scenery. Like other parks, full of interesting fauna and just general beauty.

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.
