  • We were awed by the natural beauty of Sitio Barriles, with the most exquisite flowers, plants, and trees we'd ever seen. Our hostess's English was superb (our Spanish is limited), and she showed us al...  more »
  • Site barrels has a great potential to become an important tourist point, given the amount of history and objects that are still buried at the site. I went without a guide, so it is likely that I missed some history or important information... Despite this, at the beginning of my journey one of the ladies of the place, very kindly gave me a brief talk on the barrels culture that inhabited this area for many to nós. However, there are points that you should work more to generate more attractive.

  • I like the place. Love the history and the statues. Very tasty cheese and jam. 100% Recommend.
  • It's so amazing all the archaeological things you can find there, some of more than 5.000 years ago
  • Sitio Barriles is an eye opening visit to the little known home of the "barrel people". Lovingly cared for by the family that has lived on the land, they will walk and talk you through the digs and surrounding area as you learn much about the people and their lives. A wonderful adventure that is not to be missed.
  • Cool place, very interesting artifacts.
  • An interesting look into pre-Colombian Panama
