This is a steep but rewarding hike that begins and ends at Kalu Yala. At the top of Cerro Prominente, you can see the Pacific Ocean and Panama City on clear days. The jungle village at Kalu Yala has a hostel and an outfitter if you want to arrange a guided hike. Please look at the information on the following website prior to driving (4x4 REQUIRED!) to Kalu Yala to begin this hike.

Beautiful views of the valley below the whole way! Wear long pants or socks to protect from the grass, it’ll cut. Definitely worth the climb!

Awesome trail with breathtaking views at the top. You have to do it on a clear day but if you do you can see both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, Panama City, and both North and South America. Absolutely amazing
