The hotel is quite nice. Our room was great, the pool was very nice. Food was great. Our only issue is that our credit card was charged twice for our stay. I tried to contact the hotel a few times but had no response. Luckily i booked through booking.com and they intervened and managed to get a refund very quickly.

... 11 November 2014 This morning I am doing nothing. It is so weird to have a day of basically nothing - I never do this! I wandered to the supermarket, bought some fruit, went to the bakery, wandered around and found an organic shop and just did nothing! At 2.30pm we were picked up to go on a coffee farm tour! Boquete is a large producer of coffee. Much of the coffee is exported to Asia and Europe. We drove up into the mountains, really ...
... so freaking cute. EVERYTHING in the purple house was purple, from the bed sheets, to the coffee cups, even the pans! They had an adorable dog to "protect" (more like nap), and the house was clean and the staff was friendly. In addition, the house runs a charity for the local people which I though was super cool. After we woke up and ate some breakfast (we brought most of our food with us), we took a taxi to the middle of town. the taxi driver took ...
We were at the bus stop in good time just in case it arrived early but it was quite the opposite, the bus was an hour late. We had seats booked on the bus but somebody was on our seats already and for some reason the driver didn't make them move. He shuffled another four people around so we could sit together. It was a pretty uneventful 2 hour drive to the Costa Rica/Panama border, there was a bit of rain on the way and a truck had driven off the road.
... that time that I initially attributed to the altitude. When the aftershock occurred, we were in the process of crossing a thin ridge between two craters on some fairly steep rock. Again I had that same weird feeling but this time our guide was there to point out what had just occurred. We stayed at the summit for about an hour hoping the clouds would part and we would be able to see both oceans but it was not to be. We then started to make our way down. Since we were cold and wet ...
For Friday, Erich, Judith, Kathrin, and I had planned to do the horseback riding tour, and Judith's friends Amelie and Paige decided to join us. The tour started around 9 30, we got driven about 20 minutes to where the horses would be waiting. We all got assigned a horse based roughly on our weight. It was interesting to be on a horse again since it had been at least a couple years since ...
