Great tour! The walk is not difficult at all... Elizabeth was very knowledgeable and it was interesting to learn the uses for each plant. The homemade sweet tea at the end of the tour was fabulous and the grounds are beautiful and well cared for.

Took this fabulous tour in February, and haven't forgotten it since! Being a previous botany student I was immediately intrigued by the opportunity to explore Panama's native medical plants, so naturally the tour and I were a perfect match! However, I also convinced my very good friend (who is not a plant enthusiast in the slightest) to join me. By the end of our walk, talks and a lovely afternoon tea we were both equally excited. Elizabeth and Diane are inspiring women and their trail is a must do while in Boquete. Thanks Ladies!

My husband, son and I took the tour on Wednesday March 6th and had a wonderful time. We learned a lot about how plants can be used to help us stay healthy and relieve pain and discomfort! It was followed up by an outdoor picnic with a gorgeous view and great company!

You and your family were wonderful guests! I hope you will return--I'm sure your dad would like some more of the coffee-orange marmalade!

It was nice meeting both Elizabeth and Diane. The tour was very informative and the views from the property spectacular. The treats at the end of the tour were tasty. I spent two weeks in Panama, and this was one of the highlights. Thank you.

If you plan to go to Panama you must go to this venue. These gals know their stuff and can help you with many health issues. They also have a great line of skin products that are all natural and feel great on your skin.
The trail walk was very easy to do and so informative. They have created a wonderful oasis high above the town with great views and great hospitality.
Treat yourself to a wonderful afternoon or morning with a visit to Cloud Forest Botanicals/ Finca Luz.
Thank you Elizabeth and Diane for your insights and caring. I will come back when I return to Panama.

It was a perfect day for your visit, Linda. Thank you for coming. The weather has been fantastic--sunny, warm, a bit breezy a times, but what's a little wind? Please do come back. You will be most welcome.
