A cool and picturesque country resort, only 120 kilometers from Panama City we find El Valle de Anton. It was originally the crater of a giant volcano which became a lake, then a swamp and then a fertile plain.
Indigenous people who were the first inhabitants left curious rock drawings or "petroglyphs" that can be seen on the outskirts of the village in La Pintada neighborhood.
El Valle has developed a prosperous industry for flowers and ornamental plants, making the small town a center for orchids. This town is well known for its Sunday market where you can observe the plants and all handicrafts of the area.
There is much to see in El Valle where fauna and flora are abundant including trees with square trunks. It is a good area for foothill birds.
We depart from Panama City on the Panamerican Highway towards Western Panama.
Approximately two hours and a half later we reach El Valle. We visit the Sunday market, visit the petroglyphs and El Macho Waterfall.
After lunch we go to the Nispero Zoo before starting our way back to Panama City.
