Baru Volcano Hike

Standing a mere 35 kilometers from the Costa Rican border, Volcán Barú is the tallest mountain in Panama. 

Move into and through the rainforest as the day breaks, hiking ever upward with your private guide. The adventure will take you through six ecoregions and the change in elevation creates an immense temperature variation.

Your guide will provide fascinating insights on the ecosystems you travel through, and before you know it, you’ll find yourself at the 3,475-meter summit of this active stratovolcano. 3, 475 meters – that’s right, this isn’t a small volcano. 

The panoramic view is incredible, encompassing great swaths of the Panamanian isthmus, parts of nearby Costa Rica, and, in good weather, both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
