Azuero Plant Database

The Azuero Plant Database database provides detailed information on plant species appropriate for planting in the Azuero Peninsula. Our extensive database includes plants and trees suitable for use in a variety of projects, such as reforestation, live fences, and medicinal uses. Plants can be searched by name or characteristic, and can be browsed alphabetically.

Azuero Map

During 2012 Azuero Eco Foundation made available the Regional Map of the Azuero. This comprehensive, bilingual map includes great detail of the Peninsula including local roads, protected areas, and points of interest. This truly is the Azuero map for every need – from planning an Azuero vacation, to finding the nearest hospital, recycling center, gas station, and tree nursery, to teaching local children about the value of their surroundings. Our map makes the perfect souvenir to remember the beautiful beaches, abundant sea life, rolling hills, farmland, forests, and picturesque towns of Azuero. Read more about it!
