      Our taxi driver picked us up at 9am, along with two Germans that were also in our hostel and we took the 1h drive towards Beucety. We stopped off at a waterfall before the town of Boquete, where we went swimming and jumped off the rocks. After we went to the natural hot springs, there were two no bigger than a large water trough surrounded by stone. They were very hot and took a while to adjust. One was 32 degree and the ...

      ... we are flying back to our home country after Panama. We politely said that was ridiculous given that we didn't actually live in the country of our passport. In the end, they agreed a flight to Colombia would be enough since we had the flight out of South America to Europe.

      Next problem was how to get the ticket at the border when there are no travel agencies. One of the officials then told we could use the wifi through his iPhone. The connection was really slow and ...

      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. ...

This mama laid 75 eggs, and then started to cover them up with her rear flippers again, smoothing and pressing the sand to secure the eggs in there. The whole process, from landing on the beach to leaving it again, takes the turtle about 90 minutes to two hours. To increase her chances of having offspring, the mama will ...

      The second method, dry-processing, where cherries are placed in outdoor patios and dried by the sun, produces earthy-flavored beans. Coffee farmers rake ...
