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.

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 ...

... especially it being 8:00 at night. She said $45. We gave her a thumbs up and took it. Shortly after saying yes to $45 she opened the gate. She gave us a key and we were finally in our room. It was the nicest place we had stayed in our whole trip. Clean bathroom, no bugs, a mini fridge, a microwave a flat screen tv, no AC. We definitely didn't need AC. It was just like home in the summer where it's warm during the day but very cool at night. We were very tired after this ...
... that do lie on our path.
It was a long and slow climb, but our day started clear, with increasing cloud as the day wore on. The valley in the morning light was stunning, vivid greens and blues, leafy plants and trees and flowers surrounding us, with the sweet scent of something like jasmine. Humidity is a given; we were drenched in our own sweat, but as we got higher, the air got a bit cooler too. The road was unrelentingly uphill for about 30 km, and then ...
... views. I'm getting to know the local guides and instructors for rock climbing and rafting so hopefully it won't be long before I get to tag along :-)
This weekend Boquete hosted it's annual Jazz and Blues festival so of course we had to go down and take a look, and it was great fun!
On the first night we got food at a local bar and they had a local cover band playing. First song? ''I Shot The Sheriff'''and although it made me laugh it ...
