Get away from the urban bustle at Metropolitan National Park, a sprawling area of green located just ten minutes from the center of the capital.Take a stroll by the canal, and through the tropical forest areas rich in wildlife, including sloths, toucans, and iguanas. Start at the visitor center to learn about the three main trails that cut across the 265 hectare (655 acre) park. The walks vary in difficulty and length, and each offers something different. To plan Panama City vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • For only 4" admission you can walk on different paths through the lush greenery and go on animal observation. Although I was already there in the morning, I didn't see many animals, but still enjoyed the trip. Despite being close to the city, you feel like you are in the jungle and the tropical plants alone are worth a visit. Those who take the trouble to climb the hill will be rewarded with a magnificent view of Panama's skyline. All in all: great!

  • Going up hilly, but a good ride and it's worth seeing the scenery from above. You can see it all the way to Balboa Bird. Fabulous!
