Soberanía National Park is the most accessible national park from the city, and protects forests that include some of the most acclaimed sites for bird watching in Panama. It is situated along the Canal and crossed by the Chagres River, and offers excellent opportunities to explore the tropical forest. Its 22,300 hectares are home to more than 500 species of birds, including toucans, hummingbirds, parrots and even the powerful harpy eagle. The trails of Plantation and Pipeline roads are the perfect places to get into the tropical nature of Panama and marvel at its exotic inhabitants, as are the Panama Rainforest Discovery Center and the Summit Municipal Park.
