I love Campana. Good for a quick hiking. Great views. Just take a good pair of hiking boots and go climb a mountain.

I find this hike medium in difficulty. It has a great view from the top, where the cross is. The trail is ok, you wont get lost, so no worries, but is slippery thou.

Very confusing place to hike. At least the paths. We didn't get it right and were actually hiking a different path than we intended. But hey, was a good hike after all, with a great view of the mountains and the coastline.

Altos de Campana is located just 45 min drive from Panama City. There are various hiking nature trails as well as observation decks that offer expansive views of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding areas.

Happened to be a very rainy day, still the drive was pleasant and the vistas beautiful. Gives you a real feel for the Panamanian mountainous countryside

No markings that I can remember. However it is a loop. Cannot get lost. Wear good runners/hiking shoes. Slippery in rainy season.
