Panama - El Valle de Anton

El Valle de Anton is a town of about 9,000 people about 1.5 hours drive from Panama City. The town is located in the flat wide crater 6 km wide of a volcano that has been dormant for around five million years. Because of its elevation (600m), it is cooler than the Panamanian lowlands. (Wikipedia).

The town has a well-known crafts market, including some tourist-oriented kitsch. Here are a couple of examples.
