El Viejo: Touch Hearts With A Vacation Here

I visited El Viejo which is a small city near the Chinandega, the place is known for Its Gastronomic specialties. The specialties are Cajetas (Dulce De Leche), Rosquillas (Doughnut), Bollitos de leche (Scone) and Toncua (a particular type of fruit). Toncua is eaten with honey and it is related to papaya. I went to the Ecodetur Cosiguina Volcano Tour; the tour was breathtaking as peeping into the belly of earth can be very fascinating. The hike up towards the top was intense but was worth the experience. The sunset from there was really mesmerizing and watching the glow was something that would leave you in awe. While hiking, we enjoyed the birds in the forest and the fresh air of nature. Being near nature always bring peace to me, as the air is fresh and the silence of technological world but the noise of nature fills the ears.

Our next stop was Pinolero Tour; the tour at the place was good, got to see the heritage of the city and culture too. The view of the lake from the top of the hill was amazing. It was really deep, like a hole in the earth. It was decorated with the greenery and thus, the lake reflected the green shade. But, from near, the lake looked different with blue shade. I was my friend being from Colorado, Ashley said there are many people who ride horses so this reminded her of being back home.

Next was, Parroquia Santa Ana. It is a beautiful church which I would recommend for everyone to visit while on the tour in the city. The church is as the way it was when it was newly constructed. The main Altar is stunning and the side altars are equally beautiful. There is the Blessed Sacrament Chapel which was brought from Italy. The entry in Chapel is open for 24 hours a day. The music was modern.

If you are planning to travel to El Valle de Anton to spend your vacation, trust me it is the right decision. The place has so many things for each one. When it came traveled to this city, I was not having many expectations from it, but after spending a week here, I changed my outlook for this city. So basically, this city is present in Central Panama. This is located at the crater of an extinct volcano. It is surrounded by cloud forest and mountains. This gives El Valle de Antón so many good things that it attracts travelers from all over the world.

In the northern side city, there is a national park called, Cerro Gaital National Park. This park has lots of wild animals and it is protected by 3 hills name Cerro Gaital, Cerro Caracoral and Cerro Pajita. The national park has beautiful trails that are wonderful to try adventure and get a closer view of nature. The trails give the mesmerizing view of the ocean. Along with that what I found fascinating here is the species of native birds here, there must be hundreds of here. I enjoyed watching red-legged the bay-headed tanager, honeycreeper, and blue-crowned motmot.

El Nispero Zoo is another exciting place to visit in El Valle de Antón. If you are an animal lover just like me, this is a place you are going to love. The zoo is spread in a large area, so come here with ample time.

La India Dormida is the spic mountain sunrise view from the valley is world famous and trust me you should not miss it. It has every worth taking pains to reach the top. I personally liked this place. Other places you should not miss in El Valle de Antón are Cerro Gaital, Chorro Macho, Pozos Termales and lastly the Butterfly Haven.
