  • Thanks to the information published on the internet by individuals and archaeology buffs, I had knowledge of the existence of this place. We went from gap, and as on so many occasions, are located the place thanks to geolocation apps. The day was rainy, and after a very interesting briefing, finally, a small group of people decided to make the visit, which consists of a small tour that includes a visit to the Museum and to the place where the latest excavations were made. After hearing the explanations of our guide and see the exhibits there, in conditions of appalling conservation and safety, we ask ourselves how it is possible that no cultural establishment in the country, public or private, has interested minimally by this place, more than grant the permission of excavation which made it possible that in 2001 came from Germany to unearth parts with thousand years old. The comedian is to visit there to pay $3 (children do not pay) devoted entirely to try to keep the place running, when to walk by the middle of the field to see some waterfalls in Boquete they asked us $5 and $7. It is forming a foundation that will be used to try to put in value the place, give the scope that it deserves, and trying to get financing to expand the excavations, which stalled makes a whopping sixteen years for lack of money. Essential in Panama.

  • Site barrels is a charming place that shows the great archaeological richness of Panama. A short tour showing some excavations that have been made, the remains of pottery, carved rock, pictogrifos, have been found is made. There is also a small museum displaying rescued beautiful parts. Much research and support by the authorities to give this site the magnificence that should be needed.

  • 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.
  • Very cool exhibit
  • Amazing place. The history is very interesting and the tour was fascinating. The garden attached to this site is beautiful and has some really strange and unique plants.
  • A diversion on the way to other stops
  • It is small but nice and interesting. Good explanations on the part of the lady who gives the introduction to the subject and guide. Beautiful vegetation during the walk.
