About the tour

Calidonia and Ancón are two neighborhoods full of contrasts and unique in their class, they are located between Casco Antiguo and the Ancon hill.

Recognized for having been one of the border areas between Panama City and the US-administered Canal zone, each with unique characteristics of great interest to know.

Calidonia is an area of ​​high traffic of cars and pedestrians, precisely between the avenue November 3 and the May 5th square we find buildings and avenues with much meaning, stories and full of movement.

In Ancón there are up to 4 different routes to reach the top of the hill 200 meters above sea level, it is an area of ​​much vegetation and less traffic, depending on the day and our resistance we will choose the route to show you the slopes of Ancon hill and the possibility of reaching the summit where the flag of Panama flies.

In this tour we will show you artistic murals, we cross historical avenues and there we'll have an opportunity to meet the tropical fauna and flora of the natural park, according to the route chosen the day you visit.

We will show you and recognize:

- The multiple cultural contributions of Afro-Antillean, Hindostan and United States migration in Panama.

- Local social movements and the Latin American region.

- Design and construction of different periods: railroad, sidewalks, streets, water canal.

- Tropical fauna and flora.

- Buildings of the Legislative Assembly, Court of Justice of Panama, Canal Administration, among others.

- Possibility of drinking natural juice, Panamanian coffee and seasonal snacks (mango salad, pixvae, pineapple chunks, mafá, platanitos)
