Directions to Cerro Canajagua
In the central provinces of the country we have beautiful masisos that are not part of the Central Cordillera very little explored by adventurers and mountaineers one of these is the Masiso the Canajagua where its main elevation is the hill that bears the same name with a height of 830 meters above sea level, exactly located in the Province of Los Santos forms the political limit of the Districts of Las Tablas, Guarare and Macaracas.
Considered as the water reserve of the Province of Los Santos, since the main rivers of this region are born, such as Guararé (34 km), Oria (67 km), Estivana (27 km), main tributary of the La Villa river, Perales (20 Km), Cacao, Sario, Monagrillo, Valle Rico and Burning.
El Cerro is considered as difficulty 2 quite easy, we have determined 4 routes of ascent, of which 2 are access with a fully paved car, another land for 4X4 to join the previous and two path may possibly exist others but We do not know whether science is passable or not.
- Route Bayano Road
- Route Hawthorn Road of penetration 4X4
- Route Hawthorn
- Trail through the Forest Burning path
If you intend to go by the Bayano route, you will have to leave early from Panama City, towards the central province through the Interamerican highway, passing the cities of Penenome, (2 hours from Panama), Aguadulce and arriving to Divisa at 45 minutes from the city from Penonome, where you must take the elevated bridge to the City of Tables estimated time 45 minutes from badge, deveras Pasar Parita, Chitre, Guarare, once you get to the Tables you must continue to the central square and cross the road bank National and ask the way of Carate, Valle Rico Tonosi, from there like in 25 minutes of road passing the towns of Carate and Muñoz you will begin to see on your right the Cerro Canajagua taken from antennas in the top you must look for an entrance on the right paved where there is a national government sign where it says Carretera de Bayano, you must take that road the first kilometers are a bit damaged you should go with caution once you get to the com Bayano unit you have to take the right path until you find the new pavement, follow it up to one and in it you will take the left and start the ascent, it should take you like 10 to 15 minutes to the top.
If you intend to climb the Macaracas side you will have to reach the Villa de Los Santos once you cross the bridge over the river La Villa arriving at the Delta fuel station turn off to the right and take the paved road to the town of Macaracas about 30 minutes , once there ask the road to Corozal it takes like 20 to 25 minutes from El Poblado, from there you start the unpaved road to Bahia Honda, and then to Espino Amarillo you always have people to ask you how to get to Cerro Canajagua, we leave the car in the central square of there we took the road on the left side we started the ascent on foot but it is a road passable in 4X4, it connects a couple of kilometers up the Bayano road from the top but this road is very beautiful and picturesque the view is totally different from Bayano.
From the top you can see the Pacific Ocean in three different regions, one of them all of Los Costas de Los Santos, Guarare and Las Tablas, from another point of Tonosi and from another the area of Mariato is a beautiful sight worth enjoying this landscape forgetting the antennas.
