The Baru Volcano National Park has the highest peak in Panama and is the best place for mountain hiking. The imposing Baru Volcano emerges from the park's 35,000 acres, exceeding in height all the mountains of the country. Its slopes, from top to bottom, are surrounded by 5 different ecosystems and are crossed by numerous streams. Its trails offer the opportunity to go deep into the cloud forest and to find through the mist the natural inhabitants of the park. At the end of the route, there is the cusp of the volcano: 11,400 feet above sea level. The summit is the perfect place to try to get a view of both oceans, camp under the stars and marvel at a glorious sunrise over the clouds, from the rooftop of Panama.
