Friendship International Park encompasses 207,000 hectares of nature along the Central Cordillera of the provinces of Chiriquí and Bocas del Toro. The high altitude of the mountainous, originally volcanic, area affords incredible views.
Recognized and protected by UNESCO, this park contains large trees like almonds and ceiba that stand aside various trails, inviting hikers to be immersed in the biodiversity and explore its virtues. This park also safeguards the watersheds of the Teribe and Changuinola rivers, sources of hydroelectric power for Panama City.
Friendship International Park has over 100 species of mammals, 9 species of amphibians, 3 types of snakes, and around 400 species of birds, including the Harpy Eagle and the captivating and brilliantly colored Resplendent Quetzal.
