Mountain National Park
Trek through Volcan Baru National Park, where the active Baru volcano dominates its surroundings at a height of 3,474 m (11,400 ft). Hike the scenic Quetzal Trail, an 8 km (5 mi) trek along scenic forests and valleys, as well as the Caldero River. Wildlife here includes a range of birds, as well as pumas and leopards. Those feeling up to it can attempt the challenging climb to the summit of the volcano, where on a completely clear day you might see both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean.
