The Metropolitan National Park is situated only 15 minutes from Panama City’s downtown and is considered the most accessible rainforest in the region, being the only tropical forest in Latin America located inside a major urban center.
The Metropolitan Park, together with several other protected areas forms the “Interoceanic Biological Corridor” that stretches from the Pacific to the Atlantic Oceans.The park is characterized by a rare dry lowland pacific forest which is home of the Two- and Three-toed Sloth, several monkey types as well as over 200 bird species. In this remarkable park visitors can access four walking trails, a bike trail (you must be in shape for this one) and the Cedar Hill lookout over Panama City and the Canal.
