We had so see the museum with a guide, problem is we do not speak Spanish and the guide did not speak English. Most of the write ups were in Spanish only so we were not able to understand what things were. If you speak Spanish you would likely enjoy this place more than we did. The museum is very... More

If you get the chance to go to the Anton Valley, take it! Beautiful views! You'll see the life of Panama, you'll hear about their history and you'll see their beautiful artisanal creations!

We had a nice stroll through the valley and into the tropical forest including walking on suspended bridges and we also visited the animal care shelter for animals with injuries. You'll love it!

Spent too much time in an animal Rescue "Zoo". Not what I really wanted to see. Very brief time spent in Anton Valley itself.

This is a very small museum behind the church but has some very nice displays. It only takes a half hour or so to visit but has information on the geological history of the area, petroglyphs and historical and cultural artifacts. Note: Some of the recent reviews here are for the zoo, waterfall, etc. This is the museum, totally different!

There were large birds in small cages. The mesh on the cages was quite small and it made taking pictures difficult. Small pool for the "therapeutic" waters.

The kids enjoyed the hike up to the waterfall. The mineral spa was a little disappointing. Looked like a man-made tub filled with dirty water that was suppose to make for skin glow!!

This is basically a one-room museum located in the garden of the church next door. Cost is only $1 and it doesn't take more than about 30-40 minutes to walk through. There are cards to explain some of the things in English. the first wall shows some of the geological history and formation of the valley, followed on the second... More
