Volcan Baru Jeep Adventure
Volcán Barú, a dormant volcano just south of the Continental Divide, is one of the only places in the world where it is possible to see both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea at the same time with the naked eye. Dozens of people attempt the climb daily, hoping to make it to the summit before the gorgeous sunrise shines above the clouds, to then light up the mountain town of Boquete below.
Join us on the steep and rugged climb by 4×4 jeep. You will make your way up to the volcano’s summit (3,474 meters or 11,398 feet), as you traverse through rolling green hills, lush jungle and finally rocky cliffs. From the top, you will be rewarded with the breathtaking panoramic view of both of Panama’s coastlines, the Pacific and the Caribbean. This is a once-in-lifetime opportunity to witness a volcano sunrise from the highest point in Panama.
Approximately 7-8 hours (2 hour scenic drive each way if departing from Boquete)
Roundtrip transportation, water, snacks, guide, amazing views!
