Cerro Campana, located a mere 50 km from the Resort, covers an area of 4,816 hectares (11,900 acres) and became the country’s first national park in 1967.
The park, embraced by the Rio Chagres which is part of the complex water reserve system to provide the Panama Canal operations, harbors a great biodiversity of flora and fauna. According to studies carried out by the National Panamanian University and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, the geography of the region characterized by mountains of basaltic rock at altitude, has contributed to the park’s rich diversity of species.
This is the perfect place for bird watching, even for beginners, and you will become familiarized with species such as the iris-beaked toucan, the tangara, the white-tailed sparrow hawk and the pava simba.
