History and Formation of El Valle Panama

In the beginning, the supercontinent, Pangea, was one large land mass that later separated into the continents, Africa, Eurasia, Oceania, North America, and South America. The region now known as “Central America” was beneath the ocean. Over millions of years, many volcanic eruptions caused several mountains of lava to emerge from the ocean, with Anton Valley being it’s own island at first, and eventually several volcanic islands grew until they touched each other, forming a bridge from North America to South America. The following diagrams show the early formation of Central America. (North and South America appear in red.)
