This wilderness area is considered an excellent living laboratory, where you can study the structure and functioning of tropical ecosystems and the relationships between them.

The Aguas Buenas phase (200-800 years d.C.) and the Chiriquí phase (1,000-1,500 years d.C.) with subsistence activities. The archaeological sites are called El Cedral, located on a terrace of the Sirena River, near its confluence with the Cedral River, the other is called Sirena, located northwest of the station of the same name in the south of the park. In both sites archaeological artifacts of great importance have been found.

Its location, its climatic characteristics, the capricious condition of its soils and its topography, make this site the home of an amazing diversity of biological species.
