Volcan is a very up and coming town located at the skirts of the Baru Volcano in the province of Chiriqui. From its peak, located 3,475 meters above sea level, you can see the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Volcan is commonly known as Little Switzerland, since many immigrants from this country settled here and built small villas with the architecture typical to their cities of origin.
