Relaxing in Volcan, Panama (Day 1, Part 1)

Volcan, Panama Volcan, Panama 

  Monday January 7, 2012


If you follow me on Instagram (@thejoyoffashionblog), you probably know by now that I spent the entire past week on vacations with my family. We decided to spend our week in Panama's mountain countryside, and our first stop was Volcan in the Chiriqui Province of Panama. The weather is sooooo breezy and fresh up there close to the mountains, the perfect place to relax with my family.

We decided to stay in the same cozy cabin that we used to stay at when we were kids. I remember visiting the place many times when i was a little girl, so it was a real treat to revisit it again and relive the memories. The cabin was just as cozy and homy as I remembered.

I decided to go with a comfy outfit today to suit my relaxed mood. I was so happy to have the opportunity to wear these cute red boots again! The weather in the city is way too hot and muggy to wear boots, but they were absolutely perfect for the weather in Volcan.

One of the reasons I love that particular cabin in Volcan is because it has a beautiful lake right outside the front porch. I spent most of my day today just relaxing in the breezy outdoors looking at the calm lake while sipping on hot chocolate.

I also started a new Paint by Number project today!! I've had this baby stored up for months now waiting for the perfect relaxing time to start it. And what could be more relaxing than painting by the lake?!

It was the perfect beginning to a relaxing vacation. Stay tuned to see more photos of our wonderful time at Volcan!

  4. I loved visiting Volcan when we were in Panama last year! I actually loved the weather all over Chiriqui - it was warm enough in February to go without a jacket but not too hot.  Can't wait to see more photos :)

  11. Sounds like a perfect weekend to me. I love coutryside and mountain. Or anything surounded by nature with lots of green and a river or a lake. The sound of the water always calms me down.
    Way better than noisy parties, though I also like to party :P
