INTRODUCTION




At almost 2000m above sea level, in a valley surrounded by densely forested mountains, CERRO PUNTA is the highest village in Panamá, and often swathed in cloud. Since it was settled, agriculture has expanded so rapidly that the town now produces some 80 percent of all the vegetables consumed in Panamá.

Everything in Cerro Punta is spread out along the main road from David and a side road leading towards Parque Internacional La Amistad.

But not all is agriculte. Despite the impact that this activity has over the environment, there are many ecosystems in very good shape and the tourism is coming to discover not only the natural reserves but also other parts of Cerro Punta where mother nature is still showing off the best images.
