Welcome to Cerro Azul, a picturesque mountain community located in the Panama Province. Nestled at an altitude of 950 meters, Cerro Azul offers a cool climate and stunning views of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. A distinguishing characteristic of Cerro Azul is that it is the closest mountain community to Panama City.
Cerro Azul is home to several villages, including Rancho Cafe, Buena Vista, Las Vistas, Las Nubes, and Los Altos. The area is well known for its poultry farming, with MELO, a leading Panamanian chicken and egg producer, headquartered in Cerro Azul.
Los Altos de Cerro Azul is located just 30 minutes from Tocumen International Airport, making it a convenient weekend retreat for city dwellers seeking to escape the heat. The gated community features 24-hour security, a country club with a pool, tennis courts, and restaurant, as well as a series of trails through one of the oldest cloud forests in the Western Hemisphere.
In this cloud forest, you can find rare palm trees that are native to only three countries in the world: Ivory Coast, Haiti, and Panama. The mystery of how these palms made their way from the African coast to the Caribbean and then to Central America is currently being studied by the Smithsonian Institute in Panama.
Cerro Azul is also home to a variety of accommodation options and sometimes homes for sale.
Encouraging wildlife in the area is the nearby enormous Chagres National Park, a tropical rainforest reserve that reaches an altitude of 1,007 meters. You can enjoy perfect weather, birdwatching, beautiful river walks, cascading waterfalls, and a wealth of wildlife on the many trails. You can also relax in the pool, jacuzzi, and hammocks on the terrace, all with breathtaking views of Panama City, the majestic mountains, and the Caribbean Sea.
Cerro Azul is the closest higher altitude community of its type to Panama City.
