Such a lovely place....didn't want to leave! Educational, breathtaking, tasteful (the refreshment was great), knowledgeable....can't say enough about the tour and the people, plus the banana-peeling dog. Taking friends there also.

Yes within hours this stuff worked. We were fortunate with... More

There are so many great things about Finca Luz and the Medicine Way Trail Tour--but one of the very BEST, is the wonderful people we meet. They come as strangers and leave as friends, who we often here from repeatedly. We so VERY much enjoyed meeting you and sharing Finca Luz with you. Please come back again soon. More

Diane and Elizabeth know their business and really want to share and expand the knowledge of plants. I've been into alternative medicine for 15 years and still learned new things. The setting overlooking the valley is very impressive. The tour was topped off with homemade cake and amazingly fresh coffee. Enjoyed the tour and wish them success!

It's been about a year since I visited Cloud Forest Botanicals...shame on me for such an overdue review! The tour itself was fantastic...educational but not the least bit boring. It was fascinating to learn to identify plants that are used on a regular basis. The eucalyptus trees were beautiful! It was also great to be able to taste the various... More

One of the most interesting experiences I had in Boquete was the tour of Finca Luz with Diane and Elizabeth, who are both so knowledgable and passionate about their work. It is a must for nature lovers, healers, and all who are interested in alternative medicine and the healing properties of plants.

High on the hills outside of Boquete, this was an informative 2+ hours with two lovely ladies learning about plants they grow and their medicinal uses.

We had the tour with one other person (we were two), and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you have any interest in alternative medicine, plant therapy, or just botany, this is a great tour to take. And even if you don't, the views and walk are themselves stunning and worthwhile. Both Elizabeth and Diane are well educated and well informed and... More
