Anton Valley...

Originally what today is Panama was under water. Five million years ago the Pacific and the Atlantic ocean where one ocean with only some island in between. Volcanic eruptions formed and increased the size of those islands. One giant volcano was located exactly where Anton Valley is today. A dormant, practically dead volcano is today a fertile valley where a thriving community lives today. A visitor to this town can enjoy a bath in the thermal springs there located, he can also visit the Nispero zoological park where efforts are being made to save the golden frog which is on the way to extintion. The tourist can also visit the Chorro Macho and try some rapelling and explore the trail at La Piedra Pintada or La India Dormida. There are a number of hotels, hostels, nice restaurants, a museum, a serpentarium and botanical garden. If you decide to go there, bring your swimming suit.
