Altos del María is a Mountain Garden with Spectacular Mountain, Valley and Ocean Views: Altos has panoramic mountain and valley views everywhere. It seems that every home site has a magnificent view. From some points you can see the Pacific Ocean and some lots even have views of both the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans. Garden crews work daily to plant and maintain flowers in bloom and keep the lush vegetation; which give the whole place the feel of a mountain garden.

From the comfortable and cool climate of your mountain property, you’re just 1.5 hours from all the conveniences and fun of cosmopolitan Panama City and just 20 minutes away from beautiful beaches, world-class golf and coastal shopping centers.

Altos is a gated community with 8,000 acres of mountain and valley property, where only residents and their guests are allowed. Facilities include a community center with social areas and shops, access to a swimming pond next to a stunning waterfall, a heliport, tennis and soccer courts, Satellite TV, high speed internet service and 43 miles of paved roads. There are also 11 miles of nature trails with suspension bridges, stairways, walkways and viewpoints. If you are a horseback-riding lover you can own horses and ride for miles without ever seeing a car.

Temperatures at Altos vary little from a comfortable 75 degrees all year. In the higher areas, some homes have fireplaces to warm cooler evenings. The unchanging temperatures make for easy and predictable living, but if you are in the mood for a warmer climate, beautiful beaches are just a half an hour away.

Altos is adjacent to an ancient volcano so flowers and trees bloom easily in the rich volcanic soil. From the onset of this project, concern for the ecology of the area was a priority for Grupo Melo. There are vast common green areas where no construction is allowed. A reforestation project of more than 650,000 trees were planted between 1996 and 2000. These areas are cared for by gardening crews daily. Some of the animals to be seen are deer, monkeys, sloths, a wide variety of butterflies and over 300 different species of birds. www.birdinginaltosdelmaria.com

Beautiful rivers, streams and waterfalls offer year–round recreational opportunities such as swimming in the natural pools and rivers, hiking, bird watching and horseback riding. Many residents take up gardening as a hobby. For them, Altos has provided a community green house. Just half an hour from Altos you can enjoy beautiful beaches, both popular and fine dining restaurants, several world-class golf courses. The fun and cultural attractions of cosmopolitan Panama City are just 1.5 hours away.

In Altos you will find all the comforts of home. Every residence has access to all the necessary services and infrastructure required for comfortable living
