This tour leaves early for a 2 hour drive to Panama's famous valley located in the crater of an extinct volcano, El Valle de Anton, home to the legendary Golden Frog.  It is the second largest inhabited volcano crater in the world, surrounded by mountains and a cloud forest creating its own microclimate. E l Valle is a must-see on your trip to Panama!

2 Short walks bring you to pre-Colombian indigenous petroglyphs (images created by carving part of a rock surface) and waterfalls.  Be advised that the Golden Frog exhibit recently moved and is not always open due to Covid.  The tour will, however, visit a butterfly garden and - of course - Panama's most famous artisan market!  Around 2pm, after a stop for lunch at a local restaurant (cost of lunch not included in tour price), you will depart from El Valle to avoid traffic getting back into the city.

On Wednesdays only, more fit or adventurous travelers can enjoy a hike on the famous India Dormida trail for breathtaking views of the valley from above 3,000 feet.  A zip-line adventure option is possible in El Valle as well (order the Add-On at an additional cost of $65 per person).
