About Volcan

With the way pollution is dominating the entire plains it’s not unusual for people to look for a place that will provide the best escape from the life-draining pollution in the city. In Panama, one place that tourists favor is the mountainous town of Volcan. Located at the province of Chiriqui, Volcan is a place full of the wonders of nature. It has an abundance of trees, mountains and lakes, making it a resemblance of a small paradise in the earth.

The place itself is magnificent with roadsides that were blessed with green grass and wild flowers but one of the reasons why tourists visit this town is the chance to see the stunning Baru Volcano. This glorious beauty is the highest in Panama and has been one of the main attractions in the region.

Those interested to see this beautiful paradise can easily fly to Enrique Malek International Airport located in David and then travel by land to Volcan. There are no direct cheap flights to Volcan yet so the only way to reach it is by car or via public buses travelling from David to Volcan, Concepcion and other towns in Chiriquí.

The village of Bambito, an equally exquisite place which is popular for breeding trout is also a few minutes away from the main center of Volcan. This place is also a favorite tourist destination because of its nice secluded location. Other sites in and around town that will make cheap flights to Volcan worthwhile are the following.

    • Arte Cruz Volcan – a place popular for its wood crafts.

    • Sitio De Barriles – an archeological place that has a historic museum.

    • Baru Volcano National Park – with its fantastic view of the Panama’s highest mountain.

    • Friendship International Park – a popular natural reserve in Chiriquí.

Those looking for hotels in Volcan to spend the night will not be disappointed since there are several decent hotels available all over town. Some of the best hotels here are Dos Rios, Bambito Resort Hotel and Cabanas Dr. Esquivel. Those who want to sleep in a little rustic environment can stay at the Volcan Lodge or book for a room at Mount Totumas Cloud Forest.
