Join this guided hike to the top of Baru Volcano. At 3,475 meters (11,400 feet) El Volcan Baru is the highest point in Panama. The summit of Volcan Baru is one of the few places in the world where you can see both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.
The overnight climb is steep and rugged. Hike along rolling hills, dense jungle, and rocky cliffs. Reach the summit just as the first rays of sun crest over the horizon!
Duration: Overnight (21:00 pm – 11:00 am)
Hiking/Climbing Time: 8 – 10 active hours
Start/End Location: Central meeting point in Boquete
Language Availability: Spanish/English
Meet at a pre-arranged point in Boquete, where your guide will check of all the gear and hiking equipment, and a provide a short security briefing. The hike starts at 21:00 pm.
The scenery during the hike is dynamic. You will pass rolling hills, dense jungle, and rocky cliffs. Catch an mpressive view of the dormant volcano’s ancient crater. Extinct for nearly 500 years, the volcano’s crater and walls are covered with growth.
As night turns to day, watch as the sky slowly changes from black to blue to shades of pink and orange. The clouds dissipate and re-form due to the temperature changes caused by the rising sun. This is the best moment to see both oceans.
You might have seen many sunrises, but very few compare to the one you’ll experience upon summiting Baru. On a clear day you will see the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea from the top. Return at 11:00 am.
This hike is available for travelers 16+ years of age in good physical health. Minors must travel with a responsible adult.
