Location: intersection of Millonarios and Medinas Street, Valle de Antón, Panama

How to get there:


Leaving Panama City, whether over the Bridge of the Americas or the Centennial Bridge, follow the Interamerican Highway for 10 -15 minutes past Coronado. Many signs will indicate the entrance to El Valle, and turn right where the arrows indicate. Follow the road around the mountain, and it will be before reaching the crater.


Go to the bus terminal in Albrook Mall and find the ticket window for El Valle de Antón. (Be careful: there is another window that sells tickets for Antón, and those buses do not go to El Valle!) The fare is $3.50 per person. Buses leave around every half hour and the trip takes about 2 hours, depending on traffic. Nearly the whole trip is on a freeway, with just the last 28km on a different road to go up the mountain and down into the crater. The first bus leaves Panama City around 7:00 am and the last bus headed to Panama leaves El Valle at 4:00 pm.

The bus from San Carlos to El Valle runs until 6:00 pm or 7:00 pm. For just $1.00 they will transport you from El Valle to the Interamerican Highway, where you can then take a bus to Panama City or any other destination.
