“Dramatic Mountains dropping into the Pacific on the Azuero Peninsula”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2010

Parque Nacional Cerro Hoya (Cerro Hoya National Park) is on the southern tip of the Azuero Peninsula in Panama. The area is full of jungle, teak farms, dramatic mountains falling into the 'Tuna Coast' of the Pacific Ocean. Jaguars, the endangered Green Macaw small white-tailed deer, and many other mammals and birds that would please mammal lovers and ornithologists alike. The area covers a large area on the southwest part of the Azuero Peninsula or 'the heart of Panama.' There are several places you get can get information, but the best place is the ANAM office and the actual Cerro Hoya Park Station in Arenas, Mariato region, Veraguas province, Panama. tanager Tourism, north of Malena, can arrange a tour for you that consists of birding or plant collecting. Jake and Alli, two expats in Torio, can also arrange tours through the Park Service. They own a local business. All of these choices are great due to their effort and communication. This park is not in the Chitre city of the eastern Azuero. Hiking here can be unexpected as the weather can change from the top of the mountains to the seaside. Be prepared for rain and warm, humid weather to a very dry heat located in areas.
