Welcome to Coclé Province
Coclé boasts a wide variety of landscapes, from all-but-abandoned coastline to towering cloud forests, with vast agricultural land in between. With its southern side stretching along the Pacific Ocean for upwards of 100km, the province claims some of the country’s most beautiful beaches, which are a magnet at the weekend for day-trippers from nearby Panama City. Up in the highlands, the magnificently situated mountain town of El Valle is another popular retreat. And shoppers take note: the sprawling provincial capital of Penonomé is the best place to pick up a 'real’ Panama hat.
