Over time, the locals began to say, when referring to the town, 'let's go to the painted house, let's go to La Pintada'.
La Pintada is based on production of the famous Panama hat, as well as their own, well- recognized local style, the Painted hat. La Pintada is recognized for its developments in the field of agriculture and tourism. In the northern area coffee and oranges are grown. It has a health center, agricultural high school and elementary schools.
It borders the Gulf of Panama south, the province of Colón to the north and the province of Panama to the east.
