The Cloud Forest Medicine Way Trail & Tour hits the streets! Now on the cover of The Visitante, Panama's bilingual weekly about all happenings Panama. Read it there! Comment here! The Medicine Way Trail Tour is open during The Green Season (May through November) Monday and Wednesday mornings, by appointment. For groups of 6 or more, tours can be scheduled on Saturdays.
The Tour begins at 9:30 and takes visitors through a guided walk of well-maintained trails. Your guide will teach you to identify rain forest medicinal plants and introduce you to both their traditional, indigenous uses and to the current pharmaceutical research being done. The tour concludes with a visit to the demonstration greenhouse where seedlings of exotic rain forest plants and more common (but potent!) medicinal and culinary herbs are grown.
Then, join the farm owner on The Terrace, looking out to the valley and Pacific Ocean beyond, and enjoy a sumptuous repast of organic coffee, herbal lemonade, local cheeses, tea sandwiches, and fruit breads.
You will have plenty of time to ask questions about herbal medicine, Cloud Forest Botanicals, and life in Boquete, Panama. You'll even have time to play with Charlie, the Finca Luz mascot!
The cost is $30.00 per person, and includes (if needed) transportation to and from Boquete.
