Metropolitan Natural Park
The Metropolitan Nature Park is the only park in a tropical metropolitan capital. Its 265 hectares are an island of trees and shrubs where one can view arboreal fauna. Approximately 192 hectares of the park are composed of tropical semi-deciduous forest of low-lying lands. The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute installed a high crane to study the animal life that takes refuge on the canopy of the trees. Among the fauna that you find in this park is the Sanguinus geoffroyi (Red-naped tamarin), Odocoileus virginianus (White-tailed deer), Dasyprocta punctata (Agouti), Nasua narica (Coatimundi), Tamandua mexicana (Collared anteater), Choloepus hoffmanni (Two-toed sloth), and Bradypus variegatus (Three-toed sloth).
Additional we find close to 200 species of birds like seedeaters, chachalaca, oropendolas, owls, hummingbirds and others.
We hike up the Natural Interpretative Trail up to the look-out, where the rest of the park can be seen as well as Panama City, the Bay, the Panama Canal including the Port of Balboa and Miraflores Locks. We come down the Mono Titi Road and finish our visit at the park's mini-ecological bookstore.
