"Uphill for Nature"

Bearing a beautiful sylvan landscape, Cerro Ancón is a lofty hill rising 199 meters (657 feet) tall in the center of the Canal Zone, fringed by remarkably natural surroundings. Affording a breathtaking bird's-eye perspective over Panama City, this hill beckons many curious hikers to its soaring summit. Since 1999, it has been open to the public, and a winding pedestrian road leads up its slopes to the lookout point. Harboring an array of native creatures including deer, sloths and coatimundis, this hill is also a safe haven of myriad migratory birds, depending on the time of the year. In addition to its many natural attractions, the hill is also home to a few cultural establishments which lie nestled near its base; the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo is located on the side closest to Casco Viejo, and around the other side, Mi Pueblito proffers interesting cultural education with a mock village modeling three indigenous Panamanian cultures.
