You can make plenty beautiful hikes around El Valle de Anton. For example, explore the nearby mountain peaks and hike to so-called ‘La India Dormida’ (the sleeping Indian) route.

We had such a great time in El Valle de Anton! It is a typical Panamanian village where you can make great hikes and dine deliciously. We were painfully confronted with our physical conditions when we hiked the ‘La India dormida’ trail. We were overtaken by schoolgirls and elderly people who walk up and down the mountain every day!

Tip from Marlou:

If you are tired after a hike in the mountains, you can go relax in the thermal baths in the village. It might not look very luxurious, but it is great to take a mud mask and soak in a hot mineral bath. And the best part is that the locals also come to relax here. A great opportunity to have a nice chat!

Discover the highlights of Panama City
Panama City is a great destination to either start or ends your trip in Panama. The city is famous for the Canal, but there's so much more! The city has really developed into a modern metropole, but kept its charm as well, which is to be seen and felt in the old part of town, 'Casco Viejo'. In addition, jungle and beaches are only a stone's throw away. Have fun exploring the highlights of Panama City!
