Best of Boquete
Today you will visit the highlights of the Chiriquí Highlands surrounding Boquete. Begin with a visit one of the area’s top working coffee plantations, where you will see the entire process from bean to cup and can even roast your own cup of Geisha Coffee!
This coffee tour is kept small and semi-private for an in-depth and hands-on experience. As you walk the fields, you will learn about the growing and processing of coffee plants. Then you will visit the roasting house where you will sample different roasts to determine your preference. Another unique feature of this tour is coffee tasting; every coffee drinker has a preference and every tour roasts beans to satisfy those particular taste buds.
Afterwards, saddle up and head out on horseback in the warmer Caldera Highlands above the Boquete Valley. Follow a trail that meanders through open golden fields, green rolling hills, across the mountain ridge, and then down into the lush rainforest. From here, you will have an amazing panoramic of the Pacific Ocean, Chiriqui’s lowlands and Volcán Barú.
Following lunch, you will drive through some of the picturesque landscapes surrounding Boquete, and you will immediately be charmed by the little mountain village, along with its favorable climate and lush vegetation.
You will have the opportunity to take pictures and get close to waterfalls alongside the road, as the fresh scent of eucalyptus trees perfumes the air as you pass by.
