    What a beautiful place. Unfortunately we were not able to see the bees because we didn’t have time but we were able to visit the store which was exceptional. Expect to find any flavor of honey you can think of.

    Every animal at La Jungla has a story. Some were injured, some abused, and some abandoned. Here they are cared for and loved. Some of the animals are just your typical pets, like cats and dogs, while others are wild, like the monkeys and parrots. If a wild animal is rehabbed, it will be set free. Others would never be able to survive on their own, so they become part of the family. Your guide will introduce you to each animal and tell you their story of how they became part of La Jungla. The humans at La Jungla are all very special people who truly care about the animals.

    The trek up Volcan Baru's summit was truly breathtaking. The lush forest scenery and awe-inspiring vistas left us in complete awe. Every moment of the journey was cherished and enjoyed to the fullest. Remember to pack ample water and sturdy hiking boots for the adventure ahead.

    This is a well maintained, privately owned hiking trail with loads of pretty flowers on the owner's property. I understand why they charge $10 per person entry; the money is put to good use. I enjoyed hiking to the first two waterfalls. The third one was too steep, muddy and slippery for me - looked like a broken bone waiting to happen! Surprisingly didn't need bug spray and the hike is via mostly shady areas.
    Trailhead easy to find and I agree with other TA reviewers, there is no reason to hire a guide for this trail. It is well marked and easy to follow. Enjoy!

    We booked a birding tour of Finca Lérida with César Caballero on the recommendation of our AirBNB host. César was the best! I am a life-long birder and have toured with numerous other guides. César was easily one of the best guides I've had the pleasure to bird with. He has an incredible ear and eye and can identify and find birds very quickly. Having been in Central America for six weeks it was extremely helpful to get confirmation on many of the bird songs and calls I'd been hearing but hadn't been able to confirm. Once a bird is spotted, he does and excellent job helping you find it, which is a skill many guides don't share. And he does it without a laser pointer! César is also highly adept at getting birds in the scope for viewing and is very accomplished at digi-scoping if you desire photos. Besides a deep knowledge of the birds César also knows all of the plants as well. It was great to finally put names to many of the trees and shrubs we had been seeing during our many weeks in Central America. He also gave us a crash course in coffee growing and processing. Since the finca is a working coffee plantation he was able to point out the many different varieties and their horticultural requirements. He even showed us how to taste ripe coffee berries! They are surprisingly sweet!
    César's pace was perfect for birding, discussing the natural history and covering a fair amount of ground. We were out for about 5 hours, moved through several different habitats and saw and/or heard about 60 species. He is extremely easy going, very personable, charming, and has a great sense of humor. When we told him we were interested in improving our Spanish he used a perfect mix of Spanish and English. He did an excellent job of speaking slowly so his Spanish was completely understandable. His English is excellent, however, so if you don't speak Spanish he would have no trouble conversing only in English. My wife, who is not a birder, found the walk completely enjoyable. She got good looks at many of our target birds and was completely charmed by César and enjoyed conversing with him.
    I highly recommend César for any birding you intend to do in the Boquete area.

    Easy and nice walk. It is for free. Best go early morning, 6 - 10 am. It is not allowed to go after 7pm.
    Good to spot wildlife and birds, but I reccomend to go with a guide.

    This is a farm upon which is grown some marvelous medicinal plants from which salubrious tinctures are made. The hostess, Elizabeth, is great and a font of info. many of the recipes are handed down from the original indigenous tribal Indians. Enjoy some breathtaking views from the Jarmillo side of Boquete.

    A young pianist prodigy, 14 year-old David Garcia, captured the hearts and astonished the minds of those who attended his amazing recital at the Biblioteca de Boquete in June 2022. His performance demonstrated his proficiency in interpreting a variety of musical works from around the world - including classics from Shubert, Chopin, and Prokofiev - and also those from composers highlighting Panama, Argentina, and Spain. An amazing and enriching experience!

    We had a great couple of hours here. The plants and flowers were beautiful, saw so many birds. The children (10 &7) were kept amused by all the quirky models, statues, freaky faces. The thing they loved most though, was on the second trail, where there is some children's play equipment, including swings with really long ropes. We couldn't drag them off. Add to that some very friendly dogs who walked round some of the route with us, and it was good for all of us. The admission fee wasn't as advertised though, as it said $5 for adults and $3 for under 10s but the children were charged full price. We couldn't be bothered to argue for that amount so just paid up.

    The beers at this establishment are decent, not exceptional, but the real standout is the ambiance. It exudes a fantastic atmosphere that draws in locals and tourists alike. The fact that many patrons speak English makes it an ideal spot for socializing and meeting new people. However, it's worth noting that the noise level can be quite high, which may hinder meaningful conversations. Moreover, due to its popularity, the place tends to get crowded, resulting in frustratingly slow service.

    Attended a lecture there during my visit. There were no plays in production but enjoyed the enthusiasm of the local people who told me about the theater.

    13 of us went to Macho De Monte today with our excellent guide Joseph Bonilla from SCAPEPANAMA. Agewise, we were from 50s to mid 70s but in decent physical condition. I was thinking the walk through the water with the canyon walks on each side was going to be similar to “The Narrows” in Zion National Park in Utah. That would’ve been a big NOPE burger! We walked through rocks in both shallow and deep waters and slid down a pretty steep natural rock slide. Ropes were required to get down another steep, pass in the canyon, and then at the end had the choice to rappel, climb a slippery, mossy wall or just jump 20 feet into the water below (I did the latter, which was much easier and time saving!) Then we had to turn around and find a way all the way back to the beginning…which was more difficult as you are climbing tall, wet and slick walls to get back to the starting point.

    All of that being said, it was absolutely gorgeous, the canyon walls in the waterfalls in the turquoise water made it all worthwhile.

    We had four guides with us, and they were very much needed and appreciated. They had to work very hard to get all of us up and down some treacherous areas. We were also geared up with helmets, life, vests, and rappelling harnesses.

    This person is not for the faint hearted nor people afraid of water or heights. You must be in decent physical condition, and I strongly strongly recommend that you go with a company who can guide you safely.
