Volcan is the gateway to some of the most beautiful scenic mountain drives in Panama.  Named after Volcan Baru, a dormant volcano that blew her top off long ago, Volcan is the first reasonably sized highland community on the way to either Cerro Punta, near the top of  Volcan Baru, or Rio Sereno, at the Costa Rican border near La Amistad International Park, a UNESCO recognized World Heritage Site.

If your travels take you to the Boquete area or other wonderful places near David in Chirqui take the time to spend a few days in the area of Volcan and enjoy the cool nights and beautiful sight seeing during the day.  Go visit places like Las Lagunas de Volcan or Sitio Barriles Archeological Site, all located near Volcan.
