El Valle de Antón in Coclé Province, home to both the Canopy Lodge and the Canopy Adventure, is an enchanting mountain valley town much cooler than the tropical lowlands. Surrounded by scenic misty mountains traversed by creeks, its true charm is revealed by its unhurried pace and its peaceful residents. Located just two hours from Panama City, El Valle is the perfect resting place for someone trying to escape traffic jams, office buildings, pollution and the pressures of everyday city life. At El Valle there are many nature-related activities for you to enjoy. At the Canopy Adventure you may go on a nature hike where you may encounter forest mammals, such as Geoffroy's Tamarins or Hoffmann's Two-toed Sloths, as well as many gaudy tropical birds. You may want to take the challenge of our zip-line adventure, where you will be thrilled at the grandeur of the cloud forest at eye level, or just relax by or in a natural waterfall! Whatever your need, El Valle will beguile you, making you want to come back for more! The Canopy Lodge is a full service lodge specializing in nature tourism, particularly birds. It is about 60 miles west of Panama City in the picturesque village of El Valle de Anton, right in the center of a gigantic crater of an extinct volcano. This is the largest inhabited crater in the Western Hemisphere and second only to the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. It is surrounded by the Cerro Gaital Natural Monument. The lodge consists of 12 bedrooms, an open living/dining room (with WiFi Internet), and a well-stocked library with natural history books and bird guides from several countries of Latin America. The swimming area in an idyllic tropical setting may be found in the gardens of the Lodge. Created by diverting crystal-clear water from the nearby Guayabo River, this pool has a year-round temperature of 76F - quite a welcome respite if you have been doing some heavy birding or hiking on our nature trails. No water treatment is necessary here, as fresh water is constantly entering, and a natural drain sends water back into the river down stream! Depth varies from 3-4 feet at the beginning to 6-7 feet in other portions, and an inviting overhanging tree with ropes completes the scene. You can swing from these ropes gracefully like a monkey or you can fall in the water like a ripe papaya. Read less
