Make sure you visit all trails. you will be able to see a lot of different animals, birds and trees. The trails are fine and you wont get lost thought, although you might if you take another route off course.
I like the sound of howler monkeys, there was one time i saw a fight ahaah very hilarious. Make sure you check all trails out thouu..

We did a nice hike here early one Saturday morning. The parking lot already had several cars in it. Apparently, it's a popular mountain bike destination. There is a fee to enter, but we walked there from the Canopy Tower and they waived it for us as we weren't parking. It would be nice if there were some trails where mountain bikers weren't allowed, because many have music playing and it's hard when you're trying to see coatis and such. But most riders were friendly and would say buenas as they passed.
We did about 9 miles up and back. I'd love to return and would try to time it so it wasn't over a weekend.

Great place to experience the Panamanian rain forest! Took several hikes & saw lots of wild life - monkeys, sloths, iguanas, turtles, snakes, butterflies, lizards as well as many birds. The downside is many of the trails need maintenance as they have been left to the elements with little to no upkeep. I felt very safe in my Soberania explorations & wish I would have had time for more!

If you are in Panama City there is certainly a lot to do and probably a lot of people will not take the chance to visit some attractions a little further out. The Soberania National Park fits this bill but it is really worth a visit. The best way to get here is on an organised tour, ours combined a bus to get us out of the city, a boat touring the Gatun Lake which involved seeing lots of wild life; caymans, monkeys and iguanas as well as interesting trees and fauna. A bonus was also a visit to the Miraflores lock to see the operation of the Panama Canal from land. If you are in Panama City, take a trip outside as there is lots to see. I would say that a guide makes the whole experience more interesting.

This national park is called the Rainforest. It is about 45 minutes away from Panama City. What a beautiful park! We stayed in the middle of it at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort. It had so many birds, sloths, owls, and we even saw the largest rodent in the world! We took nature walks on the trails and saw beautiful trees, butterflys, exotic birds, heard howler monkeys, and saw beautiful flowers. You must keep covered. I suggest wearing good hiking shoes or strong sneakers, lots of repellent, preferably with deet, and a large brimmed hat. It is in the high 90s every day and very humid. Also have good sunglasses and carry a lot of water! It's a beautiful place! Go on the Pipeline Road if you get a chance. Go early to see more birds.
