  • 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:)
