Great hike up to the top of the hill and a beautiful view for your efforts. The road up to the summit is paved and along the walk you may see a variety of wild life. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the exercise and...More
Ancon Hill is in town and a lovely hike. There are several lookouts to see great views of the city, We met people that told us they saw toucons, sloths and monkeys, It poured on our way up and I'm wondering if that was why...More

I actually took a sunrise hike up Ancon Hill with a tour guide. My tour guide was very knowledgeable about the flora, fauna and history of Ancon Hill so it was much more than just a walk up the hill. That early in the morning...More
Decent hike and excellent view offered of the city, but this shouldn't be your first choice if you're looking to see wildlife - the National Park was less physically demanding, and had more biological pay-out. It's also worth checking out Mi Pueblito if you're at...More

The climb to the top of Ancon Hill would not be closed as it's an outdoor hiking road. I would guess that the beautiful Port Authority building, as a government building, would be closed on weekends. Enjoy!
