Boquete flower gardens, coffee, misc

On the way to the flower gardens
After we left the Rio Crystal lodge (sniff!), we drove toward the Boquete flower gardens. The most beautiful, I thought were the private gardens of the home Villa Marta. They belong to the people who own the house. They actually cultivated the whole area and opened them to the public. It's free and gorgeous! They do have timings and I don't quite remember them. They request that you not be loud, step in restricted areas and attempt to feed the fish and birds. They have these little ponds and pools where you have fish, swans and ducks. The kids just ran round and round trying to find one more "coloured fish". Our way to Villa Marta was no less beautiful. Full of coffee plantations. Boquete grows some of the best coffee in the world. It was all on the border with Costa Rica. So it was funny to see the plantations stretching all the way into the other country.

The rock formation
When we drove back from Villa Marta, there was this curious rock formation. The kids tried to climb it and I don't believe that they could get much of a grip. Of course, it was vertical! No slopes or anything.

Villa Marta as we went in


There were fishes in there.
Most enchanting few days I'd had in a long time. I'd go back there in a heartbeat!
