Cerro Punta

chiriqui, volcan, boquete, panama, tourist, information, guide

Cerro Punta is located in the heart of the “Panamanian bread basket.” Situated in the Chiriqui highlands just a days hike from the peak of dormant volcano Volcan Baru, Cerro Punta has an ideal climate and soils for growing many fruits and vegetables.  If you can find it in a Panamanian produce isle, it probably came from Cerro Punta.

Cerro Punta and the surrounding slopes of Volcan Baru (Panama’s highest point) are a part of the Cordillera de Talamanca mountain range.  The temperatures are cool and refreshing and provide a perfect escape from the warmer weather in the lowlands.

When visiting Cerro Punta try to get an early start as afternoons tend to bring mountain fog and showers.  Make sure to pack long pants and a jacket to keep you warm in the evenings while snuggling next to a cozy fire with your special someone.
