Overview

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.

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...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.

I think it is a nice place to go. To feel the natural ambiance and take advantage of an amazing panoramic view to admire the mountains and the seaside landscapes. It is easy to get there.
