Anton Valley Day Tour
Anton Valley “El Valle” is a scenic mountain town nestled inside of the crater of an extinct volcano. Located 600 meters above sea level on the mountain side of the the Pacific Riviera, a visit to El Valle will guarantee a refreshing escape from the tropical heat of the beaches
Known for its beautiful landscapes, flower lined streets and lush, green mountains, and with temperatures ranging from 10º to 25ºC, El Valle is the perfect place for outdoor lovers.
Offering a large variety of trails, hikers of all skill levels will find their activity fix. Since not all trails are marked, our guide will gladly accompany you as far as you want. The most famous hike, which no one should miss out on is the India Dormida trail, offering the most spectacular sunrise viewpoint in the whole valley. The India Dormida trail will take you to the summit in 45 minutes, where you can enjoy amazing views of the valley below, before heading back down along the crater’s edge.
Back in town, don’t miss out on visiting the Nispero Zoo to see the Panamanian golden frog, which is actually extinct in the wild. Panama has made incredible efforts to preserve this species since it became threatened by a fungal pathogen over the last 40 years. Today, The Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute along with the Panamanian Golden Frog Species Survival Program is working on a plan to get them back into the wild, and you can see them first-hand at the Nispero Zoo.
If you visit El Valle de Antón on a Sunday, you should not miss the market, a favorite of locals and visitors alike. There, you’ll be able to pick up artisanal crafts made by members of the Ngöbe-Buglé community, as well as traditional molas crafted by members of the Guna community. At the market, you’ll also find traditional Panamanian hats known as “sombreros pintaos,” and a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Since Anton Valley “El Valle” is 2 hours away from Panama City, we leave early in the morning. Our friendly driver and guide will pick you up from your Panama City lodging at 7am. Arriving in El Valle we invite you to hike the India Dormida trail (Wednesdays) and enjoy jaw-dropping views of the immense valley 900 meters below. We also offer a shorter version of this hike, which leads to the petroglyphs and waterfalls (Sundays). In the afternoon we visit the Nispero Zoo to see the famous, nearly extinct Golden Frog and the famous artisan market. For those who need more exhilaration, we offer a zip-line adventure option (additional cost of $70 per person).
At around 2pm we return to Panama City to avoid late afternoon traffic. However, if there is time and depending on traffic and weather conditions, we will gladly stop at the beach to end the day with a relaxing swim in the Pacific Ocean.
