Gorgeous Finca Lerida in Boquete

Jan 10 (1) Jan 10 (2) 

  After relaxing several days in Volcan, we then spent a couple of days in another mountain area of Panama: Boquete!

Jan 10 (3) Jan 10 (4) Jan 10 (5)

Today we decided to visit a farm and restaurant called Finca Lerida to have lunch and walk around. The food was AH-mazing as well as the view from where we ate!

After eating all of the yummy food, we went for a short walk around the farm to see all of the beautiful flowers and plants. Everything was just picture perfect with bright vibrant colors!

At one point of our walk, my sister accidentally stepped on my foot. It hurt so much, that I actually fell on the ground laughing of the pain (Yeah, I laugh when I'm in pain... what can I say, I'm a weirdo... at least I'm a happy weirdo though ;)

The funny thing is that when I was lying on the floor laughing of pain, an adorable dog came to say HI! He kind of startled me at first to be honest, hence my surprised face ;P

The dog was sooooo friendly! I really enjoyed playing with him.

After Finca Lerida, we decided to walk around the town. Look at this gorgeous river!

During our walk, I saw the cuuuuutttest hat eeeeeeeveer: A monkey hat!! OMG, I couldn't help but buy it! I know i probably look ridiculous in it, but I love it nontheless :)

There was a huge event taking place in Boquete called Feria de las Flores (Fair of the flowers). Like the name implies, it is a fair filled with beautiful flower arrangements and plants for sale.

I took better pictures of all the beautiful flowers the following day when we went back, but here are a couple just so you get an idea of how pretty it was!

  9. The girls in the traditional clothes are gorgeous. Is it normal for people to wear it in certain areas or is it more for tourists ?

  10. Hello!!! Thank you so much!! Actually, they only wear the traditional folkloric dresses at special events or for tourists. In this case, they were going to perform some traditional Panamanian dances, so they were all dolled up. So cute right?!

  11. Thank you Lorena!! It is one of my favorites as well!

  12. Hahahaha thats a funny way to put it, but so true!! It is indeed like a big bouquet, hahaha. Thanks so much!

    Beautiful flowers! And I love your coat :) ♥

  15. Thank you so much Jody!! The strawberry dessert was strawberry Jubilee or something like that. It is basically pieces of cake, strawberry, and I think raisins all sauteed in a sweet licour and then with a caramel-ish sauce. It was soooo good!

  16. Aaaawww thanks Lydia!! It makes me so happy to hear you think my country is beautiful. One of my goals for this year is to feature more local beauty so that people get to know Panama a little better. So I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed them!

  17. hahahahahaha I hope you DO visit Panama someday!!! If you do, let me know so we can meet up! hehehe. Thanks for stopping by ;)
