Volcán is a small and beautiful town located in the folds of the Barú volcano, which is often surrounded by clouds, the highest peak of Panama, 3,475 meters (11.460 feet) above sea level in the western province of Chiriquí.
The Chiriquí province, in Panamá, is a new tourist destination with an abundance of natural resources such as mountains, sea, islands, rainforest, coral reefs, trails, volcanos, beaches, most of them surrounded by or within national parks and natural reserves, with rich Indian cultural roots, like the Ngobë Indians, in an environment naturally designed to enable many activities like travel, scuba diving, trekking, snorkelling, rafting, canoeing, fishing, bird watching and many more.
Deep in the valleys of the Central Mountain range, among hundreds of waterfalls, between wooded canyons and thousands of wild flowers, we discover small towns that have their own enchantment.
Volcán lies in a zone of “cold” climate, of mountainous landscapes and a great agricultural production.
Here the houses and properties are constructed in the central European style, making us remember that Swiss people arrived here, long before the highway to Volcán was built. The Swiss were followed by Yugoslavs and Germans.
