Valle Escondido Residential Resort Community began construction in 2001 and was the first residential project of its kind in Panama. It is widely acclaimed as one of the finest residential communities in Central America and has been featured in a number of international publications and TV programs including Forbes and HGTV House Hunters. One of the many advantages of living in a resort community is the number and quality of the amenities available to homeowners and resort guests alike. Although residential communities can have great amenities such as golf, tennis, pools, fitness, club house etc., the monthly fees needed to provide and maintain them would be prohibitive without a resort operation to absorb much of the costs. Be sure to look over the links to our Country Club and Spa to see the details of the many amenities that help create a wonderful Valle Escondido lifestyle.

El Higueron for casual fare
The Higueron is next to the river under the giant Higueron tree. Here you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the Quebrada Grande as it runs right next to your table. The early mornings bring out the many song-birds who favor this area for their breakfast too. The giant tree acts as an umbrella to both provide shade and protection from the bajareque (Boquete mist) that often times rolls into the valley. They serve a wonderful breakfast of either typical Panamanian style dishes or North American favorites, from omelets to French toast. For lunch you will find great soups and salads as well as sandwiches, burgers and wraps. Want something even more filling? You can order great steaks and chicken dishes as well as fresh fish. Hours 7am to 4pm.

Sabor Escondido
Don't let the name fool you. It means hidden flavor, but the flavors won't be hidden from your palate! Enjoy fine dinning in a casual style at the great white tent. The inside is decorated as a Bedouin camp with multicolored textiles and soft lighting. Sit by the fireplace and enjoy a glass of wine while perusing the extended menu of delightful creations by our chef Alex. We offer a variety of specialties as well as some of your well-known favorites, but all with a touch of Chiriqui flavor. Enjoy a Mexican basket of sauteed chicken in a flour shell or an authentic Valley of the Moon ceviche. Or how about a tangy strawberry salad to go with the steamed or broiled local rainbow trout or seabass. We even grow our own tilapia here in the resort if you would like to experience that wonderful fresh water fish. Our steaks and other meats come from just over the volcano. Brevard specialty butchers is well known all over the country as the best supplier of select meats. If you like pastas they have several flavorful dishes such as meat or vegetarian lasagna or seafood sauce over fettuccini. Be sure to look over their extensive wine list consisting of wonderful South American wines and some California favorites. Home made tres leche or cheese cake with raspberry are to die for. Hours from 6pm until 10pm.
