The Panama Tree
Continue the trail until you leave Uvita, you will come across a tangle of vegetation. These are the creepers.
The Panama Tree is one of the largest on the island
A clearing is reached where a Panama tree stands majestically, a symbol of our nationality.
This is another ideal place to take a group photo.
Before you get to the tree, jump on several spots and you will feel the soft ground. Next to this tree was one of the rice plots of Minsín and Gringa. You can display the map of the Minsín and Gringa era by clicking on the following link.
To the west of the Panama tree there is a path that leads to the banana plantation. This trail is not open to the general public.
