“Altos del Maria, Panama a paradise to live in”
Review of Altos del Maria

Altos del Maria
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Sora
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 January 2017

Altos del Maria, is mainly an expat and Panamanian (where they have their country homes) mountain community with 7000 Acres, located 20 minutes from Panamericana road, and Pacific beaches near Coronado golf and beaches.
We stayed in two ocassions at Altos for a period of 3 months. It was a paradise for us. The view of the valley, and peak are stunning, The temperature is about 80 F during the day, no A/C needed, no mosquitos because of the breeze from both oceans (Pacific and Caribbean) and not as hot as by the ocean (90F or more). The vegetation and kilometers long hiking trails along the Maria River reminded us of places in Canada. October and part of November are the rainy season then after comes Spring.

This place shouldn't be listed on TripAdvisor. It's a private property without public access.

In Google maps the streets seem to be public, but finally they weren't. We had to turn back and couldn't pass...

The development of Altos del Maria consists of 7000 + acres within a gated community with 24/7 security, Altos boasts beautiful mountain views, amidst a pristine natural setting and provides for year-round comfortable living for its residents. Many green areas have been maintained, and there are a variety of mountain trails which help maintain the look and feel of a national park. Attractions include panoramic mountain, valley, green belt and Pacific Ocean views, a near perfect spring-like climate year round (75º F - 24 Cº), a first-class infrastructure including miles of paved roads, vast common areas, waterfalls, rivers, hiking trails, observation decks, parks, lookout points, flowers and trees everywhere.

Altos del Maria has may building lots for sale as well as existing homes looking for new owners. A stop at the Visitor Center will allow one the opportunity to get a great overview of this paradise and arrange for a guided tour if interested in buying. When I first saw this fantastic place I decided to relocate from Florida and become an "Altoid", as residents are known. Keep in mind that this is private property and not open to the general public.

This is a gated community in the mountains above the Pan American Highway. Not sure why its listed on Trip Advisor! From some of the comments you would think this is a place to visit. There is no access to the area where the camping or the hiking trails are unless you want to go to the sales center and get a sales pitch on buying property! Huge waste of time!!
