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.
