Visit El Valle de Anton. When in Panama visit El Valle de Anton. Also known as “El Valle” (The Valley), this small mountain town is located in the central highlands. Less than a three hour drive from Panama City, El Valle is only a 45 minute drive to the beaches of Chame and Coronado.
El Valle is a true oasis for every one of all ages who enjoy outdoor adventures and being surrounded by nature. The “El Macho” waterfall and trails are only a few minutes from the center of town.
For a small entrance fee, the beautiful forest canopy trail is well maintained with metal and rope hand rails in its steepest parts with good footing. There are three rope bridges crossing the river. Signs in both English and Spanish explain the sites. The total hike only takes 20 minutes and ends up at a natural pool where you can swim if you bring a towel and swimsuit.
Hike La India Dormida which is one of Panama’s well-known mountains. This trail ascends to 3,000 feet (914 meters) making it a good workout. The flora and fauna are breathtaking, as well as, the view from the top where one can see both oceans.
El Valle also features the Pozos Termales (Hot Springs). Soaking in the hot springs allows the skin to absorb its minerals including sodium, potassium, calcium and bicarbonate. Experts claim these minerals help with sleeping disorders, asthma, arthritis, and reducing stress. The temperatures range between 36 and 42 degrees Celsius (96.8 to 107.6 Fahrenheit).
