El Valle has numerous other eco-attractions to lure visitors. These include a zoo, thermal mud baths, Orchid Center, numerous groomed hiking trails, waterfalls (for both sightseeing and swimming), a Serpent Center, 2 museums, horseback riding, and more. The renowned artists and farmers market acts as the town center. From the market, Butterfly Haven is the closest attraction and an easy walk.
For many reasons, El Valle Panama is a highly sought after tourist destination. As the second largest inhabited volcanic crater in the world, it is cradled 360 degrees in the surrounding beautiful mountains. This lends a spiritual aura.
Volcanic soil and a moderate climate, with temperatures ranging from 62 to 90F have created a green, lush valley filled with flowers year round.
For all these reasons, it is also a highly desirable place to live. El Valle contains many beautiful weekend homes (which are an attraction in themselves) These homes were built by wealthy Panamanians who work in Panama City, just 2 hours away by car or direct bus.
