This small foothill town, some 15km northwest of Penonomé, attracts visitors with its natural beauty, its famous artisans selling Panama's very own sombreros pintados (painted hats) and its cigar factory. Be warned though: the world's largest copper deposit has been discovered in the hills just 30km north of La Pintada. Visit this delightfully sleepy town before large-scale mining and new money changes it beyond recognition.
