Even though we do not live in the area, but based on my trips when I was little girl visiting my grandparents in Boquete (less than 15 miles from Volcan), I have heard that the view from the Baru Volcano itself is absolutely wonderful, but you have to go with a well-trained tour guide, for security purposes. Also, you have to be careful, and ask your doctor if you are fit to go, because Baru Volcano a very high mountain, actually, the highest in the country. And the temperature is very low, and it can be windy.
As Ms. Socarraz mentioned, the area is a natural preserve, and one of the best regions in the continent to find such bio-diversity, which is the reason that it has been chosen several times for the "Corredor Mesoamericano", which is an international event where people from all over the world come to use that path for a competition.
On the other hand, the views from surrounding towns like Cerro Punta, Volcán, Boquete, Altolino, the Costa Rican border, several rivers and lakes, Chiriquí Viejo, and the Indian district make this region very beautiful and picturesque, with its unique coffee farms and flowers, pine trees, gardens and birds. The "Feria Internacional de las Flores" (International Flowers Fair) in January attracts people from countries all over the world. The cold, windy and cloudy days are similar to London, yet, in 20 minutes you can find and be in warm towns like David and others. All this and more makes this region very popular for expats and visitors, where you can find all modern facilities, airports and shopping centers. Ahhh, writing this brings me memories from my childhood, as I was born in the area, but left as a child. Very different, though, through the years.
