in english it’s the square trees on Anton valley.. but really they should call it “the somewhat square trees of a small grove in Anton valley”. it’s an interesting place but I would definitely shoot for a more honest title. it’s actually located behind Hotel Campestre and they charge a few bucks to see it.. its a short five minute walk through some jungle overgrowth.
One of the lesser known places in Panama. Clear waters, white sand and yes, iguanas, as well as a healthy population of hermit crabs. Isla Iguana turned out to be quite a day trip. $30 and 20 minutes gets you there on boat from the closest beach. the rest is pretty simple, spend the day there chasing the local wildlife around; fish, crabs and iguanas. they all seem friendly (and almost catchable). its a small isla, only two beaches within a 5 minute walk from each other. lots of beautiful views and lots to see underwater too. the only thing missing was a hammock.
It’s a bright sun and the limitation of my cell phone camera are evident. out of the several dozen photos I took, only a handful didn’t look washed out and over-exposed. but I still got some great views.
As it’s namesake implies, its the home of numerous iguanas, but also the home of thousands of hermit crabs. the beach is filled with them. Video captures it best.
In fear of an impending attack by sea? …There’s a place for that.
built in the later half of the 16th century to protect the mouth of the Chagres river. Fort San Lorenzo still stands as one of the coolest places to visit in Panama. The fort comes complete with cannons and strategic oceanfront views, lots of walls and nooks provide great spaces for hide and seek and if you go in the off season, you get the place all to yourself.
