Hiking & Waterfalls, The Green Side of the Riviera Pacifica

Meet the Riviera Pacifica's verdant side and discover the depths of its tropical jungle. Cross crystal clear streams and wonder at the waterfalls that spring up from the greenery of its vegetation. This tour along the Pan-American Highway begins in Chame, just 1 hour from Panamá City, and continues to the top of the Anton Valley Mountains, 80 miles (130 km) from the city. 

With almost 10 trails, more than 7 waterfalls and several circuits, the Riviera Pacifica invites you to know its opposite side to the beaches: a green side full of life. In the Riviera Pacifica, regardless of whether you are an expert or if it is the first time you get into nature, you will always find an exciting trekking challenge.
