    We found this place by accident. What a pleasant surprise! We saw leaf cutter ants, a tapir, a family of howler monkeys and much more within a 20 minute spontaneous hike.  more »

    As in the case of the Metropolitan park, I wasn't lucky with animals. I'm not able to see many, partly because the trail which departs was crossed by dozens of mountain biking, which were confusing and unnerving to say the least. If you can find a path and a visiting times quieter (advise on Sunday morning), I'm sure you will see monkeys, birds and sloth.

    The Park of sovereignty is a fabulous place for the sighting of animals. It costs $ 5. Birds, bears Anteaters, coatis, capybara, howler monkeys and especially many birds. If done with guide, is will see many more, to us it cost us to see them, but if you give a good ride you will find. The path of Pipeline road is a good path to do so.

    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.
