Sarigua National Park

Sarigua National Park, located in the province of Herrera between the Santa María and Parita rivers, has suffered from a high rate of deforestation ever since the 20th century and become a vast plain.

Rain, wind, and tides have further contributed to the erosion, turning it into the driest area of ​​the country and creating the illusion of a desert.

Sarigua serves as a center for anthropological study, housing archaeological remains that date over 11,000 years old, the oldest found on the isthmus of Panama, as well as a village dating 5,000 to 1,500 years old.
