San Lorenzo Protected Area

The San Lorenzo region, on Panama's Pacific coast near the city of Colón, combines picturesque natural beauty and historic significance. The ruins of San Lorenzo fort, built by the Spanish to protect the entry to the Chagres River, offers impressive views from its UNESCO-recognized lookout points, while the surrounding Parque Nacional San Lorenzo is graced with lush vegetation and excellent bird-watching.
