ATTRACTIONS


If Boquete is the main center of attraction of Chiriqui high lands, being the best departure point for the visits to Barú Volcano and the National Park of this same name, Volcan offers almost the same possibilities with other additional attractions, like the exclusive Bambito, town a little before Volcan main center, the trouts breeding farm, the handicrafts of Arte Cruz, the Barriles Site and the tours to the Vocan Lagoon.

Volcan is also in the way to Cerro Punta and Río Sereno, two very interesting towns in the mountains.
