“Very interesting learning experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

What a great morning. Walking the path learning about plants, trees and herbs in the beautiful Boquete highlands was a perfect occasion to share with visiting friends. Diane was very knowledgeable about all the plants along the tour. After the tour the homegrown coffee, juices, fruits and baked cookies were the icing on the cake. Elizabeth and Diane were the perfect hosts. This is a must for residents of the surrounding areas as well as all visitors to the Boquete.

“A lovely morning walk in Boquete, Panama...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We loved our visit to Cloud Forest Botanicals! We took a lively but gentle walk through the mountain farm tasting, touching, smelling, and examining the plants and herbs Diane and Elizabeth use in their botanical preparations. We discovered some new herbs and revisited some that grow around our home as well. The walk ended with a beautifully set table on a balcony overlooking the valley below. In the casual atmosphere of friendliness we sipped organic coffee grown in the surrounding landscape and nibbled delicious farmer's cheese, local honey, fruit salad, and homemade cake. We would love to visit again! Thank you ladies!

“One gorgeous morning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Had a great time exploring the plants, witnessing their amazing view and learning more about healthy natural alternatives. Tasting some of the plants was interesting. Elizabeth and Dianne are both wonderful people, and so genuinely friendly! We had a nice little chat over a yummy breakfast before she dropped us off. Definitely would recommend visiting!

“Medicinal herbs and plants tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The tour was very informative and hands-on. We walked the property and identified 12 different trees, plants and herbs and what medicinal properties each one possessed and how they were processed and used.

The tour concluded with a very lovely snack of delicious coffee grown on the finca, along with soothing juices, tasty breads, and yummy spreads all made from ingredients found on the farm.

A truly enjoyable experience!
