Cerro Punta is right next to Volcan and other lovely parts of what is now known as Tierras Altas. The area has, along with nearby Boquete, the finest mountain towns for retirement, recreation and a rural lifestyle in all of Panama.

Many properties in the area feature rustic, traditional architecture that blends seamlessly with the natural surroundings, creating a unique and authentic atmosphere.
One of the main draws of living in Cerro Punta is the opportunity to immerse oneself in the natural beauty of the area. Residents can explore the nearby hiking trails, take a dip in the natural pools and waterfalls, or simply relax and enjoy the fresh mountain air. The town is also known for its thriving agriculture, with many farms and orchards producing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables that can be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.
The travel time between Boquete and Cerro Punta along with the rest of Tierras Altas was recently shortened by the completion of the Ruta Sur road, an impressive public works project. The route from the Casa Solution office in downtown Boquete to the Casa Solution office in downtown Volcan now takes about an hour and fifteen minutes.
The fertile lands surrounding Cerro Punta are used to grow a variety of crops, including onions, tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, coffee, corn, bananas, potatoes, lettuce, and flowers. Along with large dairy, horse, and cattle farms, there are several smaller sheep, pig, and chicken farms scattered throughout the region. A couple of miles north of Volcan, on the road to Cerro Punta, there is a large trout farm. To support the farming community, the region has a sizeable Catholic High School, San Benito, that is dedicated to improving farming methods throughout Panama.
