The most notable feature of Parque Nacional Volcán Barú is the dormant volcano, the 3474 meter high summit of which is the highest point in Panama. But the park is also home to one of the most scenic treks in the entire country, Sendero Los Quetzales (the Quetzal Trail), a place where you can sometimes spot a quetzal, a bird that was considered sacred by the ancient Maya people. Besides quetzals, the park also hosts 250 other bird species as well as pumas, tapirs and the agouti paca, a large spotted rodent also called conejo pintado, or painted rabbit. Connie and I knew that this hike would be very special, and we weren't disappointed by what we found! I took almost 200 photos and videos that day.
