Caldera River

This is Caldera River. This area is known for hot springs. I took a Collectivo taxi to the hot springs with a group of friends. The taxi dropped us off the the ‘end’ of the road and we had to walk 1.5km into a farm. The hot springs are on a private farm. We had two choices to enjoy the springs. One was in the middle of a paddock and the other was by the river. We chose the river. It was a good experience. I took the opportunity to relax before spending the night hiking Vulcan Baru.

Vulcan Baru

Vulcan Baru is the largest mountain in Panama. It sits at 3,474m (11,398 ft) above sea level. I hiked up and back in a day. The sunrise is spectacular. I got a chance to see the Caribbean and the Pacific Oceans at the same time for the top.

On the top of the volcano sits this cross. To me it was a reminder that every day is a gift that is given to us and we should treat each day as it is our last.
