Ancon Hill - Hiking Panama City - Panama

A steep, 30 minute hike up from Mi Pueblito, this hill offers a commanding view over Panama City all the way to the first locks of the canal. The best view is in the prohibited area at the base of the giant flagpole. Offer the security guard a dollar and compliment him on his fetching pet cat and he'll unlock the gate for you. Trying to spot your hotel is fun, as is watching planes land at the nearby airport.

The hills form an island of jungle within the city, and are home to monkeys, armadillo and toucans. The surrounding neighborhoods are a bit dodgy and a taxi is strongly recommended. It's also possible to taxi up to the summit, but that's a pricey trip.
