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.

Encourage to do it alone and without guidance, everything is perfectly marked, impossible to lose. Ideal to do early, with very comfortable clothes, slippers and obviously fresh water. If You are lucky (as it was in my case) You can see SLOTHs hanging from the trees with their slow walk. Ideal and economical Exit to make with children from the 5 years. Important: Not suitable for people with reduced mobility.
