A walk through coffee country

After my disaster climbing Vulcan Baru the previous day, we decided a leisurely stroll through the wooded hills surrounding Boquete would be much more sensible. Although the day was hot, there was a mountain breeze and the countryside was absolutely beautiful: forested hills, coffee plantations, small suspension bridges, rushing rivers and a somewhat disappointing waterfall.

The ultimate goal of our walk was a waterfall that several people had told us was ‘spectacular’. It was a disappointment, but thanks to the fabulous countryside the journey really was better than the arriving. I wish we’d had a few more days so we could have explored a little more of the area, its such a beautiful place.
