There is a lot to see in Panama away from the capital city, and Boquete is a great place for those interested in adventure travel.


Head to this charming mountain town, situated around eight hours from Panama City by bus, and you’ll have a chance to enjoy a wide selection of activities. Birdwatchers will love the Talamanca mountains, home to around 1,000 species of birds, including the Resplendent Quetzal.


Coffee lovers will be pleased to hear the area is also home to some of the best beans in the world thanks to rich volcanic soils, high altitude and lots of different microclimates. Visit some of the local farms to find out how coffee gets from the bush to the cup.


Thanks to its varied geography, the area around Boquete is home to lots of adventurous activities. There is white-water rafting on the Chiriqui river, zip lining through the rainforest, and horseback riding or hiking along the many local trails.


Those who like hiking will love Volcan Baru, the highest volcano in Panama at 3,475 meters. Climb it on foot or take a 4×4 to the top if you prefer. After all of your exertions, relax in the Caldera Hot Springs to aid your recovery.

Best Souvenirs to Buy in Galicia

The Spanish region of Galicia sets itself apart for many reasons, like its vistas of the Atlantic from its perch in northwestern Spain right above Portugal. Its cliffs of Cape Finisterre are the end of the world or were thought to be by the Romans. The Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail runs through this region, as well. The landscape is beyond comparison as is the food.
