Is Cerro Punta Worth Visiting for Solo Female Travelers?

Nestled in the Chiriquí Province of western Panama, Cerro Punta is a picturesque highland town known for its remarkably cool climate and scenic natural beauty. This gem, located near the Costa Rican border, is a stark contrast from Panama's tropical coastline, offering breathtaking views of its rich vegetation, filled with flowers and strawberries.
