Early morning our guide will meet you at your hotel to start your journey to Campana National Park, about an hour from Panama City. Also known as Altos de Campana, this park was established in 1966 as Panama’s first national park. Its noted for its remarkable steep rock formations, evergreen lowland and submontane forest. Campana National Park protects two watersheds: the Sajalices River, which empties into the Pacific; and the Ciri and Trinidad River, which flows into the Chagres River Basin. These watersheds are considered the most important resources of the Panama Canal.
The Campana Mountain is a great place for hiking and exploring the forest surrounding an extinct volcanic edifice. The trails will lead you to beautiful forests where you may observe some amphibians, arthropods and more than 140 different species of birds such as the scale-crested pygmy-tyrant, orange-bellied trogon and chestnut-capped brush finch.
