<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Volcan Baru is the only volcano in Panama and is famous as the only point in the country from where, on a clear day, you can see the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans in the same panorama. It is a fun and challenging climb, with an awesome summit experience. It is also easily accessible from the towns of Boquete and Volcan. If you want a guide for the climb, Volcan Baru tours either take you up during the day, or overnight so you can see the sunrise from the top. </span>

<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Time of departure depends on which side you want to climb. The Boquete side is much easier as it is mostly just a road, with no forks or detours; to see the sunrise, you would start climbing this side at around midnight. The Volcan side is much more challenging and it is highly recommended to use a guide, especially if you are climbing at night. To see the sunrise, you would start climbing this side around 10pm (or whenever your guide tells you is best!). </span>

<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Also note that it is COLD at the top of the volcano. It is almost never cold anywhere in Panama, so travelers often don’t expect this, but bring a few layers, including any warm clothing that you can. You won’t need it for most of the hike, but once you are at the top and waiting for the sunrise, you will be glad you carried the layers! If you didn’t pack anything warm, there are a few used clothing stores in Boquete (usually called </span><i><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Ropa Americana)</span></i><span style=”font-weight: 400;”> where you can find a long sleeve shirt or sweater for cheap. Or you can buy a light blanket for $2-$4 at any number of stores in any town. </span>
