El Valle is town nestled on the inside of an ancient caldera. The town is famous for its golden frogs and square trees. The golden frogs have been captured to save them from fungus.
Mexico to Panama
3/6/2009: For our last stop before Panama City, we visited El Valle. The ride from Santa Catalina took forever, including being left at the wrong bus stop.
Our intention was to visit the cloud forest. That night might have been the stormiest of the trip, and it was difficult to sleep in the high winds.
We did not make it to the forest, and we left early the next day for Panama City.
