Metropolitan Natural Park

Picnic at Parque Natural Metropolitano
Central America’s only protected area lies inside the city limits and is one of the last redoubts of the all-but-disappeared Central American Pacific dry tropical forest, where trees shed leaves in the dry season. It features numerous trails and panoramic outlooks from which explorers observe the forest’s sundry strata, tune in to all manner of birdsongs, and take in panoramic city views. Parque Natural Metropolitano is also an ideal venue for picnics. You’ll find it in Ancón, where Avenida Juan Pablo II ends.
