La Chorrera is a city and municipality in central Panama, located about 30 km south-west of Panama City. It is the capital of the province of Panama Oeste, and one of the larger cities in the country. La Chorrera is fond of the phrase: “La Bella, Enamoradora y Querendona, La Gran Chorrera“, reportedly as a tribute to its beautiful women, kind people, and happy nightlife.
It’s not known exactly where the name “La Chorrera” originated; but many assume that it is due to the large number of waterfalls there. One of these is “El Chorro de La Chorrera”.
