Get prepare for a unique experience close to Panama City. Yes, just inside the boundaries of the city, our monument for sovereignty is full of nature and history. We will start our hike at the entrance of the pave road to the top of Ancon Hill. While we walk up we will be talking about the evolution of Panama City, the importance of the hill since colonial times and how it became such an important icon. Know, not everything is history, we might be able to see wildlife such as(sloths, tamarin monkeys, agoutis, birds). So close to the city and we have the opportunity to see such interesting animals.

At the top we will have amazing panoramic view of the city and of the entrance to the Pacific side of the Panama Canal, giving you by far the best photo opportunities in a Panama city hiking tour. On the way down from the top it will be a casual walk to the entrance of Ancon hill pave road.

José is a fantastic host and guide. He did a wonderful job describing the natural beauty of the hike, while also adding in bits of trivia, story and insights that made the trip extra special. We spotted monkeys, sloths, toucans and many other wonderful animals and creatures while also understanding the history, significance of the hill, flag and other aspects of the tour. We went on the tour with our two small children. José was patient, friendly and very caring. He ensured everyone was having a great time. If you have an opportunity to fit this tour into your schedule, you'll love it. The paved road to the top makes for an easy walk and you'll enjoy one of the best views of Panama City as your reward for making the trek.

The guided tour of Ancon Hill was so interesting and Jose was very knowledgeable about the history and wildlife. My family had a great time exploring the area and Jose helped my kids see the monkeys, sloths and other animals that we otherwise wouldn't have noticed. I really recommend this tour or any tour with Jose!

The tour with Jose was great! He was very knowledgable and enthusuastic both about Panama's history and its wildlife and nature. At the same time, it was not like a lecture, but more like a conversation with a friend. And we also saw a lot of animals. In addition, Jose was very accomodating about the time of the tour. All in all, I have learnt a lot and had a great time, too!

Jose was very knowledgeable and friendly to hike the hill. Due to unforeseen circumstances of access closure, we were not able to complete the tour the first day. Jose was very accommodating to reschedule and even offered to pick us up to try again. The views were beautiful at the top. We saw multiple animals from Panama, including lots of sloths (It was my personal goal to see one!). He was so friendly, courteous and accommodating. Wonderful experience!
