“NICE, COOL CLIMATE LOCATION”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Just a simple small town with lots of handicrafts and a hot spring bath location. Nice and quiet with quaint, unsophisticated good restaurants.

“Interesting, but no one offered information”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

I wish one of the three people congregated around the cash box had offered to provide a tour. There is a lot of El Valle artifacts, some hundreds of years old, some contemporary. The $1 admission is fair.
It is located immediately to the left of the church.

“'Poor' because it was not open...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

The garden walkway into the Museum is lovely. Just like my great grandmother's garden would have been. Charming and natural with a kind hand tending it. We were disappointed to find the Museum padlocked. The adjacent church was open, however and allowed a nice respite. The Nativity scene was still up and was so very pleasant to examine. There is at least one small leaded stained glass window. and the wooden pews were very well maintained as we have seen in most churches in Panama. We will try the museum on another day.

“Small, interesting with a nice guided tour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

David gave us a great guided tour where he explained where each of the pieces in the small museum came from. Very interesting.

“Interesting when you can get in.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We were fortunate enough to find David, the curator, who opened up the museum for us and showed us around. We found it extremely interesting for the tiny size. David (in his 70's) gave us the added bonus of climbing the huge mango tree outside the museum, and tossing us down some juicy ones.
