It’s a very nice walk if you only have few hours left before heading to the airport or even between flights. We thought we won’t see any animals we were lucky, as quiet and observers, and we got to see slots, monkey ti-ti and many...More
Don't believe the various tour books about the hours at the park; as one the of guides said - 'we are here every day' - and although we took a chance we found the park open after the reported 1:00 closing time on weekends. The...More
Maybe I'm just unlucky- started my walk around 8am and was there for about two hours. Did most of the trails, stopped and looked frequently, but didn't see any sloths. I did see several coatis. Paths were clearly marked and mostly loose rock (no mud)....More

Really neat to enjoy being in real nature setting right in a city - Incredible especially Panama City - big, not pretty to me - but then in a jungle setting. We walked all three trails, took about 2 hours. Went to top. Suggest morning...More

Take an Uber cab! Tickets at park, not busy at all. Really nice walks with a bit of uneven terrain/hills not too strenous will take 2/3 hours. It really is a jungle in town; hot and sweaty with city views. We saw many birds... More
Take an Uber cab! Tickets at park, not busy at all. Really nice walks with a bit of uneven terrain/hills not too strenous will take 2/3 hours. It really is a jungle in town; hot and sweaty with city views. We saw many birds, insects, butterflies, monkeys and quite a few sloths. I think we were lucky!
