This morning, the Janson Coffee Estate invites you for a comprehensive tour of their farm in the shadow of the Baru Volcano. Learn first-hand the entire process of coffee production – including planting, harvesting, processing, roasting and packaging. This coffee is grown at an optimum altitude in rich volcanic soil and has won many prizes. Continue on to the Eastern side of Baru Volcano to the charming mountain town Boquete, located on the Caldera river. Prepare for an exciting canopy zipline tour that that allows you to contemplate the rainforest from fourteen different canopy platforms while smoothly soaring in the heights of the cloud forest from one treetop to another. Glide through the trees and encounter a world unknown, discovering a fascinating new perspective of wildlife. Marvel at the sight of a great variety of orchids, trees and wildflowers that are found throughout the area.
Note: The Canopy Zip-line Tour has the following maximum weight restrictions: 175 lbs for women and 250 lbs for men.
Descend for about an hour to Boca Chica and board a boat to explore the Gulf of Chiriquí National Marine Park, a 36,000-acre area encompassing two dozen islands, the surrounding open waters and estuaries. The refuge is home to dramatic wildlife, including howler monkeys, leatherback and hawksbill turtles, and Tiger herons. Your home for the next two nights is on Boca Brava, one of the larger islands at the edge of the park. Approximately 10 miles long and four miles wide, its topography is as rich as its flora and fauna, with a grassy interior sloping to a coast composed of idyllic and empty beaches, estuaries, and mangrove wetlands. At your seaside boutique hotel take some time to enjoy a swim in the warm waters of the Pacific or enjoy a paddle on the calm bay during sunset.
