Part -4 The skyline of Panama City, Panama-Incredible!
At this point, we just let Alberto take us to where he thought was best. Up until now, we had only seen the skyline of Panama City from the ground. I was anxious to see it from up high. Alberto said he was taking us up on the high hill, Cerro Ancon, for the view we were looking for. It was a beautiful drive up to the top-lots of flora and fauna-several hikers on the trails doing birdwatching.
At the top of the hill was what we were looking for-breakthtaking views of the skyline of Panama City, Panama. It looked like Miami Beach-unbelievable! Panama City is the most cosmopolitan city in Central America and when you see it from Cerro Ancon, you will believe it! Also from the top, you can see all the ships at anchor waiting their turn to go through the Panama Canal. I think I counted 40 of them. If you go to Panama City, you have go up Cerro Ancon.
On the other side of the hill was a great view of the Panama Canal and Balboa. Alberto was very patient with us, wanted to give us lots of time to take pictures, and was interested in answering all of our questions-in Spanish, of course!
After we took all the photos we wanted, it was off to the Canal.
