Several writers have described this idyllic community in the mountains of Chiriquí, Panama as being similar to the fabled “Shangri-La” valley of the famous Hilton novel.
This area is most probably the most unique in all of Panama and this tranquil garden home embodies all of the best features of the area.
3 bedroom, 2 bath Titled Home
The home sits on 1543.43 square meters of land.
It is bounded by a paved road to the south and west and a river to the north. It has municipal water and electricity.
The owner wishes to sell the home as a “turn key” transition. So everything apart from his personal effects will come with the house. This included cutlery, bedding, furniture and appliances. So all the new owners need to bring is their suitcases.
This home would suit an artist, writer or any creative person. Also suited for a retiree who prefers to live peacefully among Panamanians and live an authentic life like a local as opposed to a disinterested expat. Volcan is 20 minutes away.
Money will buy this house – but the mountain tranquility and peace that comes with this home – that is priceless
The Cerro Punta Area & Guadalupe Village:
Cerro Punta is a gorgeous high altitude (about 7,00′ elevation) fertile valley in western Panama near the Costa Rica border. Noted for its many vegetable farms and dairy farms that sometimes run right up the sides of the mountains to dizzying heights. This valley is referred to as the “breadbasket” of southern Central America, and fondly as the “Switzerland” and “Shangri-La” of Panama.
Physically, Cerro Punta is a relatively small valley squeezed between the continental divide – which is called the Cordillera de Talamanca here in western Panama – and the 11,400′ high Volcan Baru. Guadalupe is one of a few magical villages in Cerro Punta.
This area of Chiriquí is noted for its high quality grass and fertile soil. The Gaudalupe area grows almost 90% of all the fresh vegetables sold in Panama. This home has its own food forest, complete with fruit trees and berries. This home is primed for eco-sustainable and off the grid living if desired.
A 5-minute drive from the house is the world-renowned horse breeding stables, HARRAS CERRO PUNTA.
This horse farm produces world-famous racehorses including a Kentucky Derby winners.
A five-minute walk brings you to Finca Dracula. Finca Dracula offers a unique opportunity to meet some of the rarest orchids from the tropics with its more than 2,000 different orchid species. It is the most exotic garden in Panama growing rare native plants you would never see unless you go deep in the forest.
A 30 second walk from the house is Los Quetzales Ecolodge, a local tourist attraction that sits at the edge of a national park rainforest. It serves excellent meals including SUSHI.
A few seconds further down the same road you have a SUPERMARKET. You would NOT need to own a car here as just about all your needs are.
Eternal spring climate, fresh air, flowing streams – truly a
