About the Tour

This walking tour is a great opportunity to meet the cultural background of panamanian urban development from the colonial Era to modern times. 

We'll see the Santa Ana and Calidonia urban Expressions such as street economy activities, artistic murals and architectural design which tells many stories of the last century, we will also stop by the historical monuments which depict important events of the local story to meet parts of our pass which haveaalways been connected with the world.

Walking pass the urban area we'll reach out a zone which is surrounded by nature, we'll be heading up to the top of Ancon Hill (Cerro Ancón) passing by an interesting and unique development zone, which use to be part of the USA military establishment in the Panama Canal Zone for almost a century. 

Besides knowing the history, this tour is an excellent opportunity to meet the tropical nature of the city, there may be encounter with tropical birds, monkeys, sloths and other animals that are commonly seeing right on the hill. 

Remember to dress for tropical weather and to check on it. Wear comfortable walking shoes and socks, sun protection, umbrella or rain jacket. 

Our two different seasons, green and yellow are between: 
1) May to December we have a green season, with intermittent rain that can get heavy occasionally. 
2) In December starts Yellow season, more sunny and a bit dryer and windy, up until April.

There are many species of flora and faun through all the year. Possible to sightsee from marine creatures to birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Many do a migration stop in Panama.

The views, the nature, the hike, the love….It was wonderful to learn about the history, art and culture of Panama through Inés’ eyes…technically, through her heart. This tour was an epic start to my Friday morning. We met at 7am in order to make it up the hill before the “sol caliente” kicked in. The hike was about 3.5 hours…we walked 12KM on this walk…navigating around to various points of interest enroute to the destination…the top of Ancon hill. An oasis in the city. LOVED Inés's urban expressions tour. Priceless experience!!!

Great Tour. Ines was very personable. She was open to all questions and definitely enjoys sharing her knowledge of Panamanian history. Ancon Hill was closed during our tour but we still learned a lot and got an appreciation for the history and culture which is why I booked this tour.

Awesome tour. Ines really knows her stuff! Very knowledgeable, excellent English, extremely proud of her country. Ancon Hill is a little bit of a climb, be aware of that from the outset--but if you can walk, you'll certainly love the views.
