Directions to La Yeguada Forest Reserve
Things to do in Panama
La Yeguada is located in Calobre, Veraguas and is the first forest reserve of the country. It was created in 1960 to protect the basin of San Juan River in order to supply clean and abundant water to the Yeguada hydroelectric plant. This area is now one of the best camping sites in the country because of its beautiful lakes, rivers, waterfall and mountainous scenery.
In addition, this Forest Reserve is the location of one of the oldest experiences of reforestation with Pinus caribaea in Central America, which began in 1967 (mainly by women) and now has over 2,000 hectares planted in harvesting state.
This place is perfect to enjoy and relax with the family you can BBQ, go swimming in the gorgeous lakes and admire the magnificent mountains.
There are not many services in this area, so you need to come prepared. You will only find one rural toilet and you can get water from the park ranger’s office.
This forest reserve is a protected area under the responsibility of ANAM ( National Authority for the Environment) so there is an admission fee to access and a camping permit fee.
- If you are coming directly from Panama City, you should follow the Panamerican Highway and make the turn in the Jaguito entrance. The entrance is sign posted and it is about 15 minutes after you have passed Aguadulce. Then drive 30km from there until Calobre and then 20km more to La Yeguada.
