We had a most lovely afternoon on our walk through the botanical gardens. The walk was a little over 2 hours. It was slow so that we could stop, look and talk about the gorgeous plants we saw. Our guide, Lynn (the owner of the property) is a cornucopia of information about plants and animals in Bocas and had so many interesting stories about the creation and ongoing development of the gardens. There were so many exquisite flowers that I couldn't stop taking photos. In addition to many varieties of plants, we saw a sloth, several colorful birds and a specimen rhinoceros beetle. At the end of the tour, we were given coconut water in coconuts to drink. We were also given Lynn's thirst quenching cold lemongrass tea. There are bathrooms at the beginning and end of the tour and at various places along the way. Be sure to bring binoculars and a camera and wear comfortable walking shoes. The taxi ride from town was $1 per person each way. The tour costs $15 per person.
