  • We visited this park that has many possibilities for walking and enjoying nature. There are areas of rescued animals that are preserved in the area for their care and recovery, and recreational areas to spend it with family or just by reading on a bench under the trees, observing nature.

  • It is striking that the hotels do not have much knowledge about tours for this place. I contacted an official of Ranger who served as guide, went in may, rainy season, wear layer for water, appropriate footwear, foods that give you energy and plenty of water. If you like the photo your camera lenses is tarnished, carries paper for paper to clean lenses. He thinks about walking at least 9 km trip and return. You will find herds of monkeys that cross through the trees, toucans and various birds.

  • We pay $ 5 per person for entry into the Park, and a charming guide made us a short briefing before leaving. Sublime Park, there went the way of the Plantación (13km round trip) 4 h leisurely and stopping to observe the animals. We ran into: bird, blue monarch, a tapir butterflies, squirrels, and small animals like rabbits beavers. Be sure to take a repellent to insects!

  • This is more of a zoo than a natural park. Does offer some viewing of Panama's beautiful flora and fauna. Worth a brief visit if your close by. Quite a distance from the city.
  • Vast and dense foliage. Good place for birding. Start early to catch birds.
  • Some of the best birding in Panama. There are lots of hotspots. you will walk alot, even with a rental car.
  • Absolute top thing to do in Panama for those who like hiking, wildlife or both. We saw so many animals on the pipeline road. We would return again in a heartbeat. No cost besides getting there. We had some trouble with busing back to Radison hotel because the bus decided not to come.
  • Preaty good place, i even went to the panama canal:)
