El Valle de Antón
The small town El Valle de Antón is located in the Province of Cocé, 120 km away from Panama City. The village is nestled in the caldera of the second largest inhabited volcano in the world. It is named by the "El Valle Volcano", a Stratovulcano. The "El Valle de Antón caldera" with a radius of 6 km was formed about 1.1-1.3 million years ago. Today the caldera forms the ground for the small town El Valle de Anton with its 6200 inhabitants with a lively es-pat community..
The floor of the valley is underlaid by deposits of a former caldera lake, filled with hot thermic water. The valley is framed by a lava dome complex which is formed by East-West movement of the caldera. The tops are known as "El Cerro Gaital" (1185 m), "El Cerro Pajita" (616 m) and "El Cerro Caracoral". The most recent important eruption in the underground was 13,000 years ago. It happened when the hot magma met the caldera lake water. Some of the last volcanic activities were measured in 1987.
Basically, Panama is situated in the hot and humid tropical climate. El Valle, lying 600 m above sea level, boasts an all-season mild spring-time climate. Year-round average high temperature is 28° C, and the average night-time minimum is 20° C, with little variation between summer and winter. The dry season starts in the middle of December and lasts until the end of April. At this time the weather is sunny and very windy. But El Valle is also worth a visit in the rainy season because it usually only rains two hours in the afternoon and the place is more quiet than during the dry season. The rainy season is also called the Green Season: at this time nature shows at its best.
Today, El Valle is one of the most popular tourist attractions, hosting many retirees from abroad and weekenders, particularly from Panama City (many of them high-ranking politicians and businessmen), who appreciate the moderate climate and the extraordinary nature.
