CERRO HOYA NATIONAL PARK
Located on the southern tip of the Azuero Peninsula, this natural park protects wildlife and ecosystems in one of the most devastated agricultural regions of Panama, through deforestation and burning.
With an area of 32.557 hectares, of which 23,000 are conserved forests, 4,000 belong to the marine area of southwestern tip of the Azuero Peninsula and 5500 is worked.
The Cerro Hoya Peak, with 1559 meters, is the highest in Azuero. At the southern boundary of the park, on the coast, is a large submarine canyon called the Azuero Canyon with more than 3,500 meters deep.
The mouth of the Ventana river is underwater and displays a rock formation similar to a window, hence the name (ventana=window).
With more than 30 species of endemic plants, it is home to many orchids. In the place inhabits the only existing population in the country of caratos parakeets.
