Cerro Ancon provides you with a beautiful view of Panama City and the surrounding areas, it also is a very serene and beautiful location as well.

Nice walk up this hill. We saw two sloths, two toucans, and a family of tamarin monkeys. Very cute. This was around 11 am. The top has some nice views. You can stop at the bottom of the hill inside mi pueblito for some fruit...More

This Hill is a must see place from me point of view since you could have the best view of the city skyline, the old town area and the Canal.

The hike up Cerro Ancon isn’t hard. It was hot in the afternoon, so people might want to do the hike in the morning when it is cooler. That said, there was a nice breeze at the top and the views of the canal and...More

The climb to the top of Ancon Hill would not be closed as it's an outdoor hiking road. I would guess that the beautiful Port Authority building, as a government building, would be closed on weekends. Enjoy!
