Strolling through the Park

Metropolitano entrance sign

Since 1988 there is a park just on the outskirts of Panama City – El Parque Natural Metropolitano. It’s the only wildlife refuge in the city and is host to an amazing variety of wildlife. There are no special attractions there. It’s a place you just go to in a casual manner to relax and forget your everyday duties for some hours. It’s fairly big and you can also easily spend a day there – as I did with some friends from the university.

From the main mountain, you’re able to catch a nice view of the city skyline…

..walk on to enjoy the tranquility of the forest…

Light breaking through the trees

..and soon-to-be forests.

Trees growing in earth buckets


Turtles in the water

It was a good day.
