National Parks of Panama

Panama’s 76 protected areas cover close to two million hectares (5 million acres) of the country, some 25 percent of Panama’s total landmass. Many of these areas are part of the national park system, which includes 13 national and marine parks, and one international park. Panama’s first national park, Parque Nacional Altos de Campana, was created in 1966 and all other parks have been established since then.
