Amenities in Summit Rainforest & Golf Resort

  • 18 hole Summit Golf Course

    Designed by noted American golf-course architect Jeffrey Myers, the 6,626-yard, par-72 championship course overlooks the famous Culebra Cut of the Panama Canal and Camino de Cruces National Park. Spend a Saturday in the full-service practice area with contoured putting surfaces and multiple tee boxes and bring the kids along to play on the six-hole, par-three course designed for young golfers. You can also perfect your game on the state-of-the-art golf simulator, improve your driving and putting on the driving range and putting green, or receive private instruction at the golf academy.

  • 4 Nature Trails

    The hotel include several day-hikes that involve a visit to our butterfly farm and frog farm and a journey to one of our walking trails, which reach the train tracks of the Panama Canal Railway Company. They also include golf cart rides in peak animal-viewing hours, as well as adventurous Night Tours in our Summit Walking Trail. 

  • Butterfly Farm and Frog Farm

    From blue morphos to owl butterflies, the flying beauties at the Summit Butterfly Farm enchant children and adults alike. You’ll find our butterfly farm at the exit of the Heliconia Trail, where you will observe dozens of insects in various stages of transformation, from caterpillars to butterflies. Then, as you exit the butterfly farm, you’ll be able to lead into our frog farm, where you will be able to encounter night frogs and day frogs. You’ll also be able to witness tadpoles in our ponds. Guided tours are available

  • Sloth Rescue and Rehabilitation Center

    Visit our country’s first sloth rescue and rehabilitation center. Our license is different from a captive license in that it would only be for rehabilitating and releasing. We provide a safe and natural space to the foundations of Panama that receive these creatures, to help them recover and release them to their natural habitat, also creating an educational center for the preservation of these animals and the environment.
