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.

We have seen three sloths (they like to hang on the ant trees - large leaves used by the leaf-cutter ants) We have of course also seen the ants... Many birds--- And you can also hear howler monkeys, only we have not seen them here. Take WATER with you! If you don't have one, buy it in the shop at the entrance. It's oppressively hot in the park and it's a bit sweaty.

Unfortunately, the most interesting piece was closed due to maintenance. Had a nice view of the booth and canal from a beautiful viewpoint.
