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.

I find this hike medium in difficulty. It has a great view from the top, where the cross is. The trail is ok, you wont get lost, so no worries, but is slippery thou.

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

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.

No markings that I can remember. However it is a loop. Cannot get lost. Wear good runners/hiking shoes. Slippery in rainy season.
