El Valle is the crater of an ancient volcano. At the bottom of this crater, 1,900 feet above sea level, is the town of El Valle. The presence of this village makes it one of the few permanently inhabited volcanic craters in the world. Here it is possible to meet the tiny and unique Panamanian golden frog, an amphibian found nowhere else in the world which is studied and protected in a local scientific center to save it from extinction. Here you can also walk trails through the forest, discover waterfalls and climb the hills that form the edge of the immense crater. From them, you get spectacular panoramic views of the town and the surrounding mountains.
All year round, but Summer for Hiking.
