Finca Dracula in Volcan (Day 3, Part 1)

Here are some photos of our third and last day in Volcan in the Chiriqui Provence of Panama. We started the day off by exploring the surroundings of our cabin. There were so many flowers, ducks, ponds, and rivers to explore. Everything was just so beautiful!

Today I went with yet another comfy outfit for a day filled with activities. You can be expecting a lot of jeans and casual outfits for the next couple of days! Hopefully it will be a nice change from my usual dresses and skirts ;)

Later in the day, we went to a flower and orchid farm called Finca Dracula. This is the home to the largest collection of rare orchids in Latin America, and one of the largest in the world.

This place was like a little peace of heaven on Earth. There were flowers and plants everywhere you looked. Everything was decorated so beautifully with cute passageways and relaxing rivers.

Everywhere you turned there was something new and beautiful to see. I mean, they even had a small waterfall for crying out loud! I wish I could live in a place like this someday ;)

As usual, I had an amazing time with my family. Its hard NOT to have fun when I'm with such nice and fun people like my family. 


Hope you are all enjoying these photos of our vacations!

  1. Finca Dracula was one of my favorite places we visited in Panama - and also a great story from our trip since we made a wrong turn on the way and nearly drove to the Panama/Costa Rica border the first time we tried to go. Not to worry, we found it the next day, and it was completely worth the trip! Beautiful photos, and what a nice cabin!

  6.  Hahahah oh dear, that's such a funny story Kimberly!! I can totally relate though, directions are pretty confusing in Volcan (not that many signs and such). Glad you found it in the end! It's so cool to think we were both in the same place right? I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed it so much :)

  9. I just love visiting gardens. It's great we can get a little taste of this beautiful orchid garden through your blog. By the way, you have such a beautiful family! (Also, FIY, I linked to one of your blog posts, the one about the pear shape tips - those are some great tips, I use them all the time!) xx Paula

  10. Hello!!! I love her outfit too!!! I just asked her where its from, and she says she doesn't remember (sorry about that). I asked her to check the label on the dress tonight, so perhaps I'll have an answer for you tomorrow :)

  13. Such gorgeous photos! The gardens look lovely, I would have to make sure to take extra allergy medicine for the trip with that many flowers! haha. 
    But I do love visiting gardens. It's ok that you are wearing jeans - I actually wear them all the time outside of work. Come to think of it- I mostly wear jeans or shorts than dresses or skirts- outside of work anyways.

  20. We are both alike then!! I actually wear jeans very often, but don't blog about them that much. I also get a lot of allergies easily, so I have to take medicine when visiting gardens.
