Torio is a small town on Panamas Azuero peninsula. It is an undeveloped region with people who live a simple but interesting way. There is a fishing village that is very friendly and the people cooperate and respect tourists. Little do they know how privileged they are to live in a place where the Humboldt current passes and an abundance of pelagic fish pass through the region.
Torio's coastline has views of Isla Cebaco and has a surfing beach that is fairly unknown to those who don't practice the sport. This region was the hometown to Victorio Vergara who is a famous Tipico musician and people take pride in this. Few foreigners have moved to the region, but these pioneers will be the first to enjoy a paradise that is filled with mountainous landscapes, rivers, waterfalls and abundant flora and fauna.
I love visiting Torio because it takes you back to another time, a place where nature and the people unite in harmony. As a photographer I like to take images of how beautiful the place is, even though its not the type of photography I specialize in. If you get a chance hop in a car, go to Torio and don't expect anything but let yourself explore and discover everything this secret place has to offer.
