Where I stayed
Pension Boquete - $30, ensuite, terrace to river, tv, very nice
The only problem with this volcano and national park is that the clouds just love it! So its pretty difficult to see anything most of the time except the path and 100 metres of jungle. We were quite lucky during the first hour when the sun was shining strongly, but the rest of the trek the clouds just stuck to us.
In any case, we did manage to see lots of birds (no idea what species but great colours), a woodpecker pecking for about 5 minutes right on top of us until he-she found a huge worm, squirrels playing around, 2 lizards mating and plenty of other fauna.
All in all, its 13 kms from the main entrance to the national park
As you can see from the picture we indulged in a small chocolate fondue when we got back to Boquete, although originally we entered the cafeteria to have a fruit salad...wishful thinking. Tonight we will add some more calories by eating in a local restaurant which promises typical panameņan food. Hopefully it wont be a Big Mac.
