On the drive up to Volcan, you will see wonderful rolling hills with horse farms and salad crops and  tropical flowers growing wild everywhere. 

The climate is really special, day time temps 75-80 degrees and cooler nights; some call it an eternal spring, but you will really enjoy living in this cool microclimate as the rest of the country can get quite hot and humid.

Volcan is located in the Bugaba District in the Province of Chiriqui, at an altitude that varies between 4,000 to 5000 feet and boasts a comfortable year-round climate which ranges between 55°-78° F.  This small town is home to the highest point in the country, Volcan Baru, Panama’s only volcano. The volcano is now dormant, and is surrounded by the forests of La Amistad National Park. Nearby are the quaint mountain towns of, Cerro Punta, Cuesta de Piedra and Bambito.

The accessibility, infrastructure and “eternal spring like” climate make Volcan a great place to be.  But, combine this with low-stress and the wholesome food; you can see why Volcan has become known as being one of the healthiest places on earth to live!

Volcan is also home to a brand new 35-bed regional hospital with 24-hour emergency care (inauguration 4/29/14). In addition, just 20 minutes from Volcan, in La Conception, a modern new hospital is almost complete. It is considered to be one of two of the most modern facilities in all of Panama. (The sister hospital is under construction in Panama City.) This new facility will create many jobs and save people in this part of the Province the need to travel to David for their high-end healthcare needs.Real estate prices in this area are on the rise, but you can still find a good deal if you really search and do your homework. The people who invest now can do nothing but sit back, hold onto their property, and enjoy the appreciation. For example: the commercial property in town is running from $200 to over $800 per meter. Just a few short years ago…you would have paid less than half of that. Real estate prices in this area are on the rise, but you can still find a good deal if you really search and do your homework.

The local economy is very strong and will continue because the majority of the country’s food supply comes from this small section of the Chiriquí highlands. The soil is very fertile and land is just appreciating in value. Farms in the most remote areas of the district are selling at shocking prices.
The government’s approval of the expansion from a 2-lane road to a 4-lane highway of the road from Concepcion to Volcan and then up to Cerro Punta is huge for this part of Chiriqui. This supports the importance that Panama places on the farming commerce in this area. The larger road will make it much easier to transport meats, fruits, vegetable, poultry and milk to other parts of the country. Real estate prices in this area are on the rise, but you can still find a good deal if you really search and do your homework.
