          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 and they intervened and managed to get a refund very quickly.

          Day 007 5 hrs, 1.6 kms After 2 days in the crisp, cool highlands surrounded by jungle mountains and waterfall, I don't feel I'm quite ready for the lowland cities with generic architecture and torrid heat. David is the biggest city in West Panama, but I just take a short walk through the shopping district... have some not so good breakfast... play unnoticed in the plaza... then decide to move on. Maybe I'll be in the mood to explore it more on my way ...

          ... This was just one of the great stories we heard over the next 3 days. On our first evening we met and chatted over dinner with a lovely couple from Brooklyn NYC, Tera and Byron. It transpired we were the only four staying the next few days so we had the place including the three beaches all to ourselves! The place can actually take up to 20 but Frank said he ideally keeps it to under 14 which is honestly amazing given the size of the place. The next day was Keith's ...

The bus company assistant, who led us off to the lawyers earlier, reappeared asking what the delay was. We told him that immigration wanted us to buy flight tickets before they would stamp our passports.

          Then it got really bizarre, the bus driver came to ask what was taking so long just when David was filling in the final details to purchase ...

          Our tour took 3 hours and we learned a lot.

          The golden grains of the coffee fruits are protected by 3 different shells. All of them have to be taken off before the roasting process can start.

          Imperfect coffee beans are carefully sorted out. A great deal of the sorting process is done by hand. ...

I stayed with the others until they started eating then went back to the room to repack my bag. The hike caused us to need stuff that had stayed in the bottom of our big bags all trip like warm clothes so we needed to try and fit everything back in. With the bag repacked it was time for a shower and bed. We had been up ...
