There we will begin our hike on the beautiful Plantation Trail, a double and single track trail. It is a well defined, narrow trail, and thus very cool and fresh due to the constant shade of the forest canopy. Soberania is one of the most easily accessible tropical forests in the world. The wildlife inhabiting this 22,000 hectare (55,000 acre) park is incredible. There are approximately 525 species of birds, 80 species of reptiles, 55 species of amphibians and over 100 species of mammals.

This trail gives you a real sense of moving through the jungle as the Spanish Conquistadors did back in the 16th and 17th centuries. There is excellent possibilities here to see birds and wildlife, especially if you arrive early in the morning. The trail is about ten miles round trip, depending on how far you choose to go, and is a good steady gradual uphill for about 2 miles before a gradual downhill to the end of the road. Trail conditions vary from dirt, gravel, hard packed sand, mud, and anything else you can imagine. The conditions are perfect for hiking because you move slowly and quietly, greatly improving your possibilities of seeing wildlife. Depending on your conditioning this can be done all the way through or part way.  Bring a sense of curiosity and adventure.
