From Panama City: Anton Valley Day Tour with Hiking

Overview

Begin your adventure with a pickup at your hotel. Then, hop into a comfortable air-conditioned car and enjoy a scenic countryside drive to Anton Valley. On the way, learn about the local history, culture, and geography from your guide. Next, arrive in Anton Valley and start exploring this town. After this, choose what to do in the morning. Hike along the India Dormida trail if you want, to enjoy a breathtaking view of the valley on a track that goes around a crater rim. Also, learn about the area’s cultural significance and the legend of the “sleeping Indian” along the way. If you don’t want to go on this trail, go on a small hike to the petroglyphs and the waterfalls instead. Dive into the water for a refreshing swim if you want. After this, head back to Anton Valley and then browse for souvenirs, handicrafts, artwork, and more at the local artisan market. Following this, go to a local restaurant and buy lunch. Decide what you want to do in the afternoon. Go to the Golden Frog Exhibition, to see the critically endangered Panamanian golden frog if you like. Or else check out the sloths, jaguars, and exotic birds at Nispero Zoo and Botanical Garden. Walk around the garden and appreciate the colorful orchids and beautiful native plants. Shop for souvenirs in the artisan market instead, if you want. Hop back into the car and take in the view on the drive back to Panama City. Finally, return to your accommodation to finish the activity.
