The Barú volcano that measures 3474 meters is considered to be the tallest mountain in Panama. However, not only its height is something to catch your attention.

The top of this dormant volcano is one of the few places in the world where it is possible to see simultaneously the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

If you start the hike early in the morning during the dry season, you may be lucky enough to catch clear weather.

Otherwise, the weather conditions are pretty unpredictable and it might be foggy and cloudy, which would hinder the ability to see the Pacific and the Caribbean. Moreover, it can even snow out of a sudden! Therefore, when taking up the hike, be sure to prepare properly.
