The Caraiguana (“the iguana face” in Spanish) is one of the mountains that form the crater of the volcano, in which El Valle de Antón is located.
Its name is due to its shape, which when seen under a certain angle, looks like the head of an iguana.
From its top you get one of the best views of the town of the Valley, the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding mountains. Ideal to appreciate sunrises or sunsets, enjoy the strong breezes during the first months of the year and admire the unique spectacle that the clouds create when they descend into the valley and fill the crater.

Starting from our meeting point in Valle De Anton, we will walk to the top of Cerro Caraiguana. We will take some time to rest, appreciate the sunrise/sunset views and take pictures before taking the way back.
Anton Valley is located inside the crater of a non-active volcano. It’s a popular destination for both locals and foreign tourists due to its proximity to Panama City.
The cool climate is a welcome change from the heat and humidity of the city, and on warm days there’s always a cool breeze. The crater is about 600 meters above sea level with mountains surrounding the town waiting for you to explore them.
Departing from Anton Valley there is a great variety of outdoor activities, mainly hiking, visits to waterfalls, rappelling and much more.
