the Talamanca Cordilleras. Having passed by magnificent haciendas on a way of about 50 km, you will arrive at Volcan on a high plateau in a height of 1200m. The landscape rapidly changes from cleared grasslands to dense and lushly green vegetation. In a distance of 7 km from the small town Bambito, which only consists of a few holiday homes and one hotel, you will reach Cerro Punta. This very pretty and well-maintained location with its marvellous gardens is a real eye candy. Furthermore it is the starting-point for going to the La Amistad International Park - biosphere reserve of Unesco since 1983 – with cypresses, cedars and gigantic oaks in the unspoilt cloud- and rain forest. Apart from 263 amphibian species various mammals are living there as e.g. jaguar, ocelot, tapir and a few different monkey species. In Volcan and Cerra Punta a very lovingly hotel has been established whose Panamanian-American owners will provide you with a rich and comprehensive breakfast.
