Breathtaking scenery! Elizabeth & Diane provide excellent information on medicinal botanicals in the environment they actually grow. Great tour for expert & novice (me) alike.

What a great morning, Tim! All the groups who visit are unique--but some are really wonderful, and the group you came with was exceptional. Thank you for taking time during your stay in Boquete to visit Finca Luz. I hope you will return soon.

“Miss this experience, & you have missed Boquete !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

I have traveled to the town of Boquete three different times. It has many helpful & friendly people. When you walk off the main paths, it is a little bit of Eden. This tour was Boquete in a bottle. Elizabeth & Diane are extremely helpful and friendly people. They share all of their helpful knowledge in a manner that you would expect from a friend. The tour was very educational, and still fun & relaxing. The information can open your eyes to the REAL world of medicine, IF you are ready to learn. I will be going back to repeat the tour on my next trip to Boquete. It is truly an event that you can enjoy repeatedly, and learn something new each time. If you want to take a piece of it back home, you can purchase some of the natural medicines in small bottles. Thank you for the enjoyable experience.

It was a joy to watch your eyes light up as you walked the trail, tasted and touched the plants. Then you told us that it had reconnected you with your earlier training in botany and given you resolve to return to the world of plants. We at Cloud Forest Botanicals offer this opportunity to all our guests--to reconnect to the world of nature and her miraculous plants. SO glad you will be visiting again!

“Tour at Cloud Forest Botanicals....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

The tour was amazing! Dianne and Elizabeth were incredible, and were full of excellent information. The farm is absolutely breathtaking, and I thought that I knew a lot about medicinals but was amazed at the information that I learned. Their farm is a gold mine of medicinal plant life. You get so much important information and you get to taste it all! At the end of the tour, you get a wonderful and yummy foods and an amazing fresh lemonade and coffee staight off the land. I highly reccomend taking this tour. It is worth every penny.

“Indulge a few hours in an green oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

The medicine trail in Boquete at Finca Luz is a unique experience with exceptional guides presenting profound information about local plants and their medicinal use. Two very down to earth women share their knowledge freely with a refreshing upbeat and humerous attitude. They make you touch and eat the plants, be ready to taste bitter to sweet and anything in between.
Finca Luz embodies to me a refuge from noise pollution, a sacred place to go within and commune with nature
Did I mention the delicious goodies at the end of the tour?
Well, you got to find out yourself, let yourself be spoiled and be transported into a very different timezone.

Thanks, Renata! The energy of the group on the day you came was really wonderful. All our tours are special, but the presence of people who are deeply involved in alternative healing and 'tuned in' to plants, was an extra gift to us. We appreciate all of you who come to see, learn and experience the bioenergetics of rainforest medicinal plants.

“FINCA LUZ tour Beautiful and very educational!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

The Finca tour hosted by the owners of Cloud Forrest Botanicals was not only breathtakingly beautiful but was also highly educational! The knowledge shared by the guide about different plants and botanical combinations was gathered from both studies of books, but also learning from healers. Priceless information. Even with a severe balance problem, the trail was very doable for me. Well worth your time whether you are local or visiting. Really a must see!
And the snack of Finca-grown coffee, cakes and jelly at the end was a super cap to a delightful morning.
