Cerro Ancon (Ancon Hill) - Panama

There is not much to do on the top besides the really nice view, so if you are short of time just go up by car in order to take pictures and can go back down quickly.

Directions to Cerro Ancon (Ancon Hill)

Ancon Hill is the highest point in Panama City with an altitude of 654 feet. The hike is very easy and can be done in around 30 minutes give or take. In the way up you might spot some wildlife mammals like sloths, white-nosed coati, geoffroy’s tamarins, nine-banded armadillos and even deers, and you can also spot some nice birds like the Toucan. However, the highlight of your hike will be making it to the top and enjoying an amazing view of Panama City, the Panama Canal, Casco Antiguo and Panama Bay, especially if you manage to see the sunset from there.

Ancon Hill was once part of the Panama Canal Zone and was once under USA jurisdiction. It was returned to Panamanians in 1977 following the Panama Canal Treaty of the same year. The first thing that the Panamanian government did after regaining control of the hill was to fly a huge Panamanian flag on top of it. This has made the hill a national landmark.

The top of the hill is also reachable by car, as there is a paved road all the way up. If you take a taxi, make sure to ask them to wait for you, otherwise it will be difficult to catch a taxi to go back. The road is only open until 3pm, so if you want to go after that time you need to walk it.
