The town is located in the flat wide crater 6 km wide of a volcano that has been dormant for more than 10,000 years. Because of its elevation (600m), it is cooler than the Panamanian lowlands. Natural attractions near El Valle include the Chorro El Macho waterfall, the smaller waterfall Chorro Las Mozas, "square" trees behind Hotel Campestre, and a group of small thermal pools (which consist of three cement pools of mineralized water that varies in color depending on the specific minerals present at that moment). The area around the town is also known for being one of the last habitats of the critically endangered Panamanian golden frog.
