We did this as part of our day tour... The city from one side and the canal from the other. Truly spectacular views from up there. My understanding is that the jurisdiction for the park is changing and may become less accessible and more expensive to see. If you're going to Panama soon I'd say make sure you go here,... More

My husband and I stopped here with our tour guy this past week. The trip up is narrow for only one car, so sometimes there's a wait until the other cars are down. At the top there are two great view spots. One side showed the canal and the other side showed an amazing view of the city. On our... More

It is worth to visit Cerro Ancón, the view is spectacular for both the city and Panama Ports. A visit during the morning may be a wiser choice.

We went during the week, in the morning and were able to drive to the top of Ancon Hill. If you go during a busy time, you can only park part of the way up. We saw two sloths that were easily viewed. The photo possibilities are endless. There are a lot of mosquitos, so take repellent. There are also... More

A windy road up to the summit, there are several viewpoints that afford spectacular views of Casco Viejo, the skyline, and the canal. Make sure to visit all of the viewpoints. You can also see the largest flag in Panama flying high above the hill. Although you can walk up and down the hill, I'd suggest going by car/taxi unless... More

The best views imaginable of Panama City, Casco Viejo and the Canal Zone can be had from Cerro Ancon. I drove up as I was pressed for time, but if you can, hike up and enjoy the scenery all the way up.

Do yourself a favor and hike to this place instead of driving. Parking is very limited and there is usually a wait for cars. It will make it for a more fun way to get to the top and appreciate the beautiful views.

You will get spectacular views from this vantage point. You can see spectacular views of the city, and also of the canal. We took an Uber car to get here. This is one of the few times using Uber that we had a problem. Our driver didn't speak English, and my Spanish was almost as good as her English. It... More

We accompany a family with 4 children . The whole family enjoyed seen the whole city from he top of the hill. But I think that will be better if the government give it better care to the place .

Ancon Hill was one of the beautiful places I saw in Panama City. We went to the base and take a walk up. It takes like 20-30 min at normal cadence. It was better than with taxi because of waiting line for card. The view is very nice and you can see the city, the Panama Canal
