One hour and a half drive from Panama City, el Valle de Antón (El Valle) is an exclusive, beautiful tropical mountain resort region where prominent families have their vacation homes. El Valle is to Panama what Cuernavaca is to Mexico, Bariloche to Argentina, or Vail (Colorado) to the U.S.
If you feel like going to a beach and return the same day, you may drive down the mountains for only 30 to 45 minutes to the most famous beach areas and resorts on the Pacific coast (Gorgona, Coronado, Punta Barco, Vista Mar, Playa Blanca, Aventura, Seacliff, Santa Clara, etc.).
The region of El Valle offers a great opportunity to go hiking, trail walking, mountain climbing, swimming in water falls and rivers, horse riding, bird watching, bike riding, 4-wheel riding, canopy tours, as well as hot springs and/or creeks. The town of El Valle also has a zoo/botanical garden with veterinarian services; a health center, dental clinic, local and international cuisine restaurants for all prices; food markets and supermarket with many locally produced vegetables and fruits, a bakery, a gourmet shop, shopping stores, drugstores, a Catholic church, a library, several internet offices, and a wonderful flower and indigenous arts & craft market which is specially lively and picturesque on week-ends.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: My husband and I moved to Panama in 2002 from Miami, Florida, where we had established our residence soon after we married in 1978. Adolfo is Cuban-American and I am originally Panamanian. Adolfo grew up in the US and I grew up in Panama. We currently reside in Panama. I have a Master´s Degree in Anthropology but currently work as an independent certified legal translator, and Adolfo has a Ph.D. in International Relations and is currently Associate Professor of Latin American History and International Relations at Florida State University-Panama.
Why the Owner Chose El Valle de Anton (Crater Valley): This property is our getaway place from the hectic life in Panama City. There are 2 houses built, one for rent and the one we use for our leisure and rest. The houses are located on opposite corners of the property to assure total privacy. We come every week-end to re-energize ourselves, because the place is completely surrounded by nature, where we feel the silence and peace of the surrounding area while enjoying the gorgeous mountain views, the sounds of a great variety of birds and the sight of many colorful butterflies.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: We felt in love with the land because of its all green exhuberant tropical foliage around us and its panoramic mountain views. We were looking for a Garden of Eden and we found it, with the great benefit of being only 5 minutes away from town.
