“Fun Side Trip”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

This was fun and we saw a spider as big as your hand. The views were great. Not bad for a side trip, which our taxi driver took us on.

“Amazing Ancon”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Ancon Hill is part of the history of the Panama Canal. In order to full appreciate the history, you must take the Panama Canal tour by boat(half day or full day) Well worth the money spent to be able to full absorb all the historical sites along the canal

“Amazing views”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

A definite must to give you a panoramic view of the canal and bridge and on the other side the amazing vistas of the old town and new city skyline. Add it to a trip to Miraflores in a taxi or tour

“Take a taxi.”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

This is worth seeing, but take a taxi. In a cool climate it wouldn't be a difficult hike up, but with the heat and humidity at this time of year it would be uncomfortable. The city view from the top was very good.

“Great views”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Great views of the city on one side and the canal on the other. A hidden gem in the hustle and noise of Panama City. Also saw our first toucan and sloth, highly recommend.
